Evernote SDK for Python version 1.21


This SDK contains wrapper code used to call the Evernote Cloud API from Python.

The SDK also contains a sample script. The code demonstrates the basic use of the SDK for single-user scripts. Real web applications must use OAuth to authenticate to the Evernote service.


In order to use the code in this SDK, you need to obtain an API key from http://dev.evernote.com/documentation/cloud. You'll also find full API documentation on that page.

In order to run the sample code, you need a user account on the sandbox service where you will do your development. Sign up for an account at https://sandbox.evernote.com/Registration.action

In order to run the client client sample code, you need a developer token. Get one at https://sandbox.evernote.com/api/DeveloperToken.action

Getting Started

The code in sample/client/EDAMTest.py demonstrates the basics of using the Evernote API, using developer tokens to simplify the authentication process while you're learning.

  1. Open sample/client/EDAMTest.py

  2. Scroll down and fill in your Evernote developer token.

  3. On the command line, run the following command to execute the script:

    export PYTHONPATH=../lib; python EDAMTest.py
