Is there a way to create a Evernote note from the command line? At best I would like to be able to edit the same note later via the command line as well.

You can try out

Geeknote is a command line tool for manipulating evernote. You can creating notes, list notebook, search notebooks etc.

I also has a feature to sync files a directory of text files with evernote.

Note that it's note Windows compatible. – Isaac Kleinman May 7 '14 at 19:39
@Isaac Kleinman, (assuming you mean not) I don't think that is correct. Its written in python, so I see no reason why it should not run on windows. – Kenneth Yrke Joergensen May 12 '14 at 13:15
Freudian slip ;) – Isaac Kleinman May 12 '14 at 14:12
The README says "Geeknote is a command line client for Evernote that can be use on Linux, FreeBSD and OS X" but I guess perhaps that means "even on Linux, FreeBSD and OS X"? – Isaac Kleinman May 12 '14 at 14:16
Next Paragraph: "Geeknote is written in Python, so you can use the open source package anywhere you have Python, even in Windows if you like.".. – Isaac Kleinman May 12 '14 at 14:19

You can also use the Evernote Scripting command (ENScript). I have the following in a batch file for adding a short note:


This will create a note with the first parameter being the title, and the title and the remaining parameters go into the note.
