Note for macOS users!

Please, check this wiki page if you have problems running the tool.

How to use

evernote2md (flags) [input] [outputDir]

input can be a file, a directory with exported files, or a glob pattern (like exports/My*.enex, for example).

If outputDir is not specified, ./notes is used. Add optional --folders flag to put every note in a separate folder.

An option --tagTemplate allows to change the way tags are formatted. See wiki article for more information.

Flag --help shows all available options.

With Docker

docker run -t --rm -v "$PWD":/tmp -w /tmp wormi4ok/evernote2md:latest (flags) [input] [outputDir]

How to export notes from Evernote

Here is a link to an article in Evernote Help Center:

How to back up (export) and restore (import) notes and notebooks

Newer versions of the Evernote App do not allow selecting more than 50 notes at a time. Consider exporting entire Notebook instead.
