Features: A closer look at Journler

Interested in Journler? Be sure you have read the Journler 2.6 announcement and looked over the FAQ. Journler 2.6 will be the last official version of Journler. Journler will then be open sourced and Sprouted development on Journler will end.

Full Feature List


With Journler you can link to any file on your computer or on a network. Drag the file into the entry’s text and Journler will create a blue, clickable link. It’s an easy way to maintain references to external documents and media.

But sometimes it’s better to turn a document into its own entry. Random notes, online thoughts that you’d like to see better organized, years of rich text entries that you had been storing in another journaling program, and archives of digital photos that are in need of commentary. Journler brings it all together.

Journler importing is a beast. Journler will look at the files you’ve provided, subdirectories and all, and import any text, rich text, word, html, webarchive, or image files it is able to.

For example, if you’re a photographer and you’ve saved your digital images as dated, high quality jpegs, Journler can import each photo as its own entry, dated to when you took the picture and added to a folder so you can easily keep track of the images. Or if you have years of rich text entries, Journler can quickly bring them into your journal where you can connect them with your new thoughts.
