While I have no doubt whatsoever, that one can implement a diary within the e-script environment, using eev-mode or not, I feel inclined to state that neither on the EevMode page of this wiki, nor on the eev-mode or e-script project homepage there is anything written about such subject. The same way one could add a link here to a perl script reposatory, saying there is a way to create a diary with perl somehow. --QirbCameled

Writing diary in e-script enables us to replay operations. I think it is VERY IMPORTANT to take a note of commands when you learn computers. eev-mode is only a minor-mode to execute shell commands in Emacs, so it is orthogonal with other major-modes for journal. – Anonymous

It seems to me that there are many such commands, potentially useful for many tasks, including keeping a journal. To list them all on this page would diminish the value of this category, however. – AlexSchroeder

This page is really getting messy mixing real CategoryJournaling tools with CategoryChatClient or other tools. It is time to take a decision and leave here qualified tool. Opinions ? – XavierMaillard
