View Full Version : [Request] Evernote for Linux

October 12th, 2009, 09:51 PM
Hello All,

I apologize ahead of time if this is in the wrong section. I've been trying to wrap my head around programming for some time but it seems that I am too right-brained to fully comprehend it. I know the basics but not enough to create something complex from scratch.

Anyhow, I was hoping that somebody shared my interest in Evernote as a note management system. While they are not exactly open-source they do offer an API. I have looked at free/open-source alternatives but Evernote's image recognition really is a killer feature for me. I take photos with my phone all the time and upload it to Evernote for later retrieval.

The problem is there is not a Linux version and the Windows version running in Wine looks horrible. Would somebody be interested in possibly creating something like this? it looks like the API supports several of the popular programming languages. I would be more than happy to provide support, art/graphics, documentation creation, etc.

I was just doing a search to see if anyone had combated this...

I would love to see this too. The ability to synchronize notes is awesome in Evernote.

a linux version of Evernote.

The standard note program in Linux is Tomboy. I'm satisfied with it, and have no interest in another wheel invention.

Well, Nevernote + the evernote web clipper (browser addon) make a great combination...!
Nevernote is good... off to a great start...

Nevernote is garbage, and installing evernote with an old version of wine also fails in the latest version of ubuntu precise.

Back to nixnote / nevernote, it's crap / garbage. I wastead a lot of time with it. I installed it several times and it kept corrupting it's own database and never worked correctly. I'm a full time software developer and a fairly experienced linux user, so if I can't install it, I think it's safe to say 99% of the other linux users out there would have similar problems.

I guess I'll try and use tomboy; hopefully that will give me what I need.
