Insert a future (or past) date or time with Breevy

Breevy 3.07 was released today. We added date and time math macros, which you can use in conjunction with the regular date and time macros to make Breevy output a date or time that is in the future (or past).

Here are a couple of examples (assume it's a Wednesday and the time is 5:30 PM):

  • If the replacement text is In one hour, it will be %(AddHours 1)%(Hour):%(Minute) %(AMorPM), the text that will be outputted after you type the corresponding abbreviation for said replacement text is: In one hour, it will be 06:30 PM.

  • If the replacement text is Three days ago was a %(SubtractDays 3)%(WeekdayName), the text that will be outputted is: Three days ago was a Sunday.

You can add or subtract years, months, days, hours, minutes, or seconds (just replace "hours" and "days" above with whatever you'd like to add or subtract).

The new version can be downloaded here. Enjoy! hahahah

Breevy is now portable!

Today we released Breevy 3.06. The big new change in this release: Breevy is now portable and can be run from a USB flash drive! 8)

When Breevy detects it is running on a flash drive, instead of saving your abbreviations and preferences to your computer, Breevy stores that data onto the flash drive it is running on. This allows you to take your abbreviations with you everywhere you go and use (as well as modify) them with Breevy on any Windows computer, without having to install Breevy on that computer. Just plug in your USB flash drive, run Breevy from it, and then you can type your abbreviations at any time in any app as usual, and make changes to them too.

To download the portable package of Breevy, just visit the portable download page. On that page you'll also find instructions on how to copy Breevy onto your flash drive (it's really easy).

The regular, non-portable Breevy installer, as usual, can be downloaded from Breevy's main page. hahahah
