Bug Description

A question from last year asked about command line interaction
...a suggestion was made to turn it into a bug report so it could be added to development.
It does not appear to have been done. Any updates to interacting with the command line?

I would like to interact on the command line *and* to be able to script it in a program.
(e.g. have a program or BASH script automatically log important events)
For the latter, it would need to either be silent or have a "silent mode" command line option that did not *require* user input.
A while ago, I had actually looked into hacking by appending (via, >>), but if memory serves your data file has some stuff at the end of it.

Thanks for your consideration of this. *IF* this would be added, I certainly would recommend this software to all students/research trainees interested in recording as an electronic lab notebook *if* they could use it from both text-only ssh terminals and programs/scripts..

I would love to use this with my command line. similar to how todotxt uses aliases to quickly add entries. like
$rnb "Had lunch today, is was awesome."

Currently, you can't do that, but you can file a bugreport so we don't
forget about this nice idea.

There has been no progress on this unfortunately. In case anyone wants to implement this I would recommend using the command line interface from jrnl (http://maebert.github.io/jrnl/) as guidance.
