Read a random journal

This is a quick and dirty script which I use personally to grab a random PDF file (a scanned version of one of my bullet journals) and to extract a random set of pages from it in order to reflect/read what was happening in the past. This also includes various notes of books I have read and random ideas I wrote down and my want to reconsider.


For Fedora Linux:

# for (obviously) qpdf
sudo dnf install qpdf
# for pdfinfo
sudo dnf install poppler-utils


Simply configure the journal path and the PDF vewer in the script and run: ./randomjournalpage.sh


There is no real testing done. It's a pretty simple script. However, the script passes the following ShellCheck command:

shellcheck randomjournalpage.sh --exclude SC2155
