evernote

This gem is a high level wrapper around Evernote's Thrift-generated ruby code. It bundles up Evernote's thrift-generated code and creates some simple wrapper classes.

setup

Get yourself a "Client application" API key from Evernote (http://www.evernote.com/about/developer/api/#key), which gives you a "consumer_key" and "consumer_secret" (note that a "web application" API key uses OAuth to authenticate and will not work). Put the key in a YML file or any other place you put configuration information. Also, get yourself a username and password on both their sandbox system (http://sandbox.evernote.com) and live system. You will be using sandbox for testing.

usage

This script is also located in /example.rb

require 'evernote'

user_store_url = "https://sandbox.evernote.com/edam/user"

config = {
   :username => 'YOUR_USERNAME',
   :password => 'YOUR_PASSWORD',
   :consumer_key => 'YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY_FROM_EVERNOTE',
   :consumer_secret => 'YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRECT_FROM_EVERNOTE'
         }

user_store = Evernote::UserStore.new(user_store_url, config)

auth_result = user_store.authenticate
user = auth_result.user
auth_token = auth_result.authenticationToken
puts "Authentication was successful for #{user.username}"
puts "Authentication token = #{auth_token}"

Once you've authenticated, you could do something like list all of your notebooks:

note_store_url = "http://sandbox.evernote.com/edam/note/#{user.shardId}"
note_store = Evernote::NoteStore.new(note_store_url)

notebooks = note_store.listNotebooks(auth_token)
puts "Found #{notebooks.size} notebooks:"
default_notebook = notebooks[0]
notebooks.each { |notebook| puts "  * #{notebook.name}"}

The evernote API can be viewed at http://www.evernote.com/about/developer/api/ref/

If the vendored code is out of date and you get an error indicating so, feel free to create an issue at http://github.com/cgs/evernote/issues
