Off late I prefer using GitHub Gist for my notes. For confidential or temporary stuff that I do not want to store on a server I use note or Laverna. However, I have friends and colleagues who use Evernote all the time. Evernote doesn’t have a official client for Linux. Here’s an unofficial one which is light and gives you the freedom to use your favourite text editor on Linux.
Geeknote is a console based Evernote client written in python. It supports the following:
- Use your preferred editor – nano, vi, vim, mcedit…
- Create, edit, search notes
- Notebook and tags
- Read note from the console
- Sync directories and files with Evernote (file is transferred as plaintext)
Geeknote provides a number of easy to remember cmdline options. Check the documentation for a step by step guide on usage.
To install and launch Geeknote:
$ git clone git://github.com/VitaliyRodnenko/geeknote.git $ cd geeknote $ sudo python setup.py install $ geeknote login
