For those of you that have wandered this way because of Scrivener related shenanigans (like, pumping data into a Google spreadsheet analysis a la Jamie Rubin’s scripts), thought I’d share this tidbit. Rather than speculate and hope, I wandered over to the Literature and Latte forums tonight and just straight up asked whether there was or would be an API for querying scrivener for stats. The reply can be found here (http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=30065&p=191164#p191164), but to save you a hop
There isn’t an API right now, though. This is on the roadmap, but I must stress, the long-term roadmap.
Also confirmed of my approaches for pulling the number of words written in a day (for that you should follow the hop) wasn’t wrong, even if it isn’t necessarily going to be right forever. Oh well, back to staring at a zero word count for the day.
EDIT: Re-read this post, clarified words my sleep deprived mind left out. Now back to that zero word count.
