Tools for converting Evernote content to SQLite. See Building an Evernote to SQLite exporter for background on this project.

Installation

Install this tool using pip:

$ pip install evernote-to-sqlite

Usage

Currently the only available command is evernote-to-sqlite enex, which converts Evernote's ENEX export files into a SQLite database.

You can create an ENEX export in the Evernote desktop application by selecting some notes (or all of your notes) and using the File -> Export Notes... menu option.

You can convert that file to SQLite like so:

$ evernote-to-sqlite enex evernote.db MyNotes.enex

This will display a progress bar and create a SQLite database file called evernote.db.

Limitations

Unfortunately the ENEX export format does not include a unique identifier for each note. This means you cannot use this tool to re-import notes after they have been updated - you should consider this tool to be a one-time transformation of an ENEX file into an equivalent SQLite database.

ENEX exports also do not include details of which notebook a note belongs to.

Development

To contribute to this tool, first checkout the code. Then create a new virtual environment:

cd evernote-to-sqlite
python -mvenv venv
source venv/bin/activate

Or if you are using pipenv:

pipenv shell

Now install the dependencies and tests:

pip install -e '.[test]'

To run the tests:

pytest
