Action

Save to Evernote (cross-platform)

Posted by agiletortoise, Last update 14 days ago

NOTE: As of October, 2020, Evernote’s new Mac app update no longer supports AppleScript. If you have v10 or greater of the Evernote app installed, this action will not work on Mac.

Convert draft Markdown to HTML and save to a note in Evernote with a timestamp note name in the default notebook.

On iOS, this action uses native Evernote support through the Evernote action step. On Mac, it uses AppleScript to speak directly to the Evernote app to create the note.

    let title = draft.processTemplate("[[noteTitle]]");
    let tags = draft.tags;
    let html = draft.processTemplate(`%%[[draft]]%%`);
    
    let runner = AppleScript.create(script);
