Open Notion Links - 06-07-20

Recently I’ve started using Notion app for note taking. There came times when I wanted to write about a specific directory, but then came the problem of how to link the dic to notion page. How about a tiny bash script? OSX’s built in open command is capable of opening links so I copied the link from notion and put in a docs.sh script. Boom! It opens the notion page but in the browser not the app 😟.

After some digging I found this repo for a chrome extension that opens notion links in the app. Taking a look at the source code it simply adds a /native in the url to open in the app. Updated my script and now it works 😀.

#!/usr/bin/env bash

open https://www.notion.so/native/Custom-Brew-Tap-e6f4faef5130442f94c9b06575806fc0
exit 0

If I continue to do this perhaps I’ll write a small tool to create the script files for me.
