This snippet is basic, and stupid, but you will be happy to have it around when you need it. Rather than manually input the current today date, you just type !tday and you get it.

Open today-timestamp in Script Kit

// Name: today-timestamp
// Description: inserts the today date (not including time) formatted as YYYY/MM/DD
// Snippet: !tday
import '@johnlindquist/kit';
function twoDigits(number: number): string {
return number.toString().padStart(2, '0');
await hide();
const today = new Date();
// Format date to YYYY/MM/DD format
const formatted = `${today.getFullYear()}/${twoDigits(today.getMonth() + 1 )}/${twoDigits(today.getDate())}`;
await keyboard.type(formatted);
