EverShort - Evernote Shortcuts

EverShort provides keyboard shortcuts to EverNote. Increase your productivity on EverNote using shortcuts to search, navigate, share and create notes.

Installation instructions:

You can install the stable version of EverShort from the Chrome Extensions Gallery.


Yep, this extension's code is a Frankenstein, so it has the potential to hurt any programmer's eyes upon staring, and any JavaScript programmer that even dares glancing at it will most likely feel a soul crushing sensation and beg to be eye-gouged.

You have been warned, proceed at your own risk !!

In my defense, I'm not a JavaScript programmer and I made this extension as I went, without any real thought or knowledge, and it shows in the result, an extension that works but it's not nice to look at. ;-)
