I am currently using evernote but I have since moved to emacs for many tasks so I would like to access everything from emacs. How can I move all my evernote data to emacs-org mode?

I doubt there is a premade package for exporting evernote to the org-mode format. But emacs org-mode is very simple, so it should be possible to write a simple script to read an evernote entry and produce an org entry from it. Is it possible to export from evernote? What does an evernote entry look like as a text file? –  Justin Smith Apr 10 '10 at 6:42

You probably already found an answer, but if not there is Evernote mode for Emacs (requires Ruby 1.8.7 or later).

  1. Apply for Evernote API key

  2. Download and run the backup script in http://norman.walsh.name/2009/11/01/evernote

  3. Write another Python script to convert that to org mode files.

Additionally the local Evernote database is a SQLite file. –  Sridhar Ratnakumar Apr 15 '10 at 6:20
