jekyll-evernote_rss

Synopsis

This is a small Jekyll plugin for integrating a public Evernote notebook into your blog via RSS. The code's not pretty yet, but functional.

Kudos to Christian Hellsten for code inspiration.

Requirements

  • Paul Dix's feedzirra gem
    gem install feedzirra or add it to your Jekyll blog's Gemfile and run bundle

Usage

Simply integrate the evernote_rss tag into the desired page and define the following attributes:

  • Mandatory attributes:
    • username: String - Your Evernote username, e.g. johndoe
    • notebook: String - The public notebook's name, e.g. articles
  • Optional attributes:
    • count: Integer - Defines how many articles will be displayed, default is 10

Here's a twitter bootstrap backed example with a table structure:

<table class="table table-striped">
  <thead>
    <th>Title</th>
    <th>Date</th>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    {% evernote_rss username:fooforge notebook:public count:20 %}
      <tr>
        <td><a href='{{ item.url }}'>{{ item.title }}</a></td>
        <td>{{ item.published }}</td>
      </tr>
    {% endevernote_rss %}
  </tbody>
</table>

The RSS feed provides the following items:

  • {{ item.url }} - A note's URL
  • {{ item.title }} - The note's title
  • {{ item.published }} - Date of publication
  • {{ item.summary }} - Preview of the note's content

Please note that the content only gets updated when you regenerate your Jekyll blog. You might wanna setup a cron job or (better) use a provisioning tool like Chef to keep things updated at regular intervals.

I've also written a simple chef cookbook that'll deploy your Jekyll blog.

A working example can be seen on fooforge.com.

Known bugs

Direct links in Safari

When trying to access a specific article in Safari you'll get redirected to the public notebook's home URL. Told Evernote about it, hopefully they'll get this fixed soon.
