A python-based parser (and example application) for kindle's My Clippings.txt

branch: master
README.org

what is it?

It is a small program that reads a text file formatted like Kindle’s My Clippings.txt on stdin and produces a complete HTML file with (sorted) highlights from that file on stdout. It also optionally takes a string to fuzzy-match with titles as first argument.

Like this: parsertest.py ‘first as tragedy then as farce’ < /media/Kindle/documents/My\ Clippings.txt > myzizekquotes.html

requirements

  • python-levenshtein

files

  • parsertest.py: an actual CLI itility, based on my own homegrown parser (so don’t trust it!)
  • kindleclippingsparser.py: a class/module for parsing Kindle’s My Clippings.

known errors

  • all input is assumed to be Unicode, because, well, it should be.
  • not very fine-grained search, yet.
