The missing notes and highlights manager for Amazon Kindle

Introduction

Dickens loads notes and highlights from your Amazon Kindle, enabling you to easily save them to your computer. The simple application is more convenient than reading 'My Clippings.txt' yourself or uploading it to a web service. Unlike the Amazon Kindle web application, Dickens loads notes and highlights from content not purchased on the Amazon Store as well.

This application was written with web technologies using the Electron framework. It has been tested on Mac OS X 10.10.5 (Yosemite) with the 2014 Amazon Wifi Touchscreen Kindle. Binaries are packaged with Max Ogden's electron-packager.

Usage

Download the latest binary. Or check out all releases.

To run from source instead:

  • npm install
  • npm start

Package with: electron-packager . Dickens --platform=darwin --arch=x64 --version=0.36.0 --icon=img/dickens.icns
