Package Description

Foundry VTT Journal Sync


This module will allow you to export and import Journal entries to the server and store them as markdown files.

Import and Export

There are two ways to import and export journal entries described below. If you are importing a new markdown file you will need to export it again so the ID of the Journal entry is added to the file. This allows the entry to be updated on the next import. Make sure you delete the old entry and only edit entries with the ID in the filename.

Using Chat

To export enter /js export in the chat. To import enter /js import

Using UI Buttons

By selecting the notes section on the left of the UI you will see two new buttons, one for import and one for export.

By default all the files wil be stored under a folder called journal-sync off the Foundry VTT Data directory

Editing the Journal Entries

You can use anything to do this however I find Visual Studio code good for this as it is a simple UI and works well with markdown. For bonus points you can run Visual Studio Code in a docker container if you are hosting it locally or on a local server. Then the UI for the notes is also web based. See Running VSCode in Docker below.

If you are running Foundry VTT locally just open the journal-sync folder under the Data directory and go to town.
