Re: Zim and evernote?


I actually use the Android Evernote app to access my Zim content, but apparently have a different use case szenario than you, as I only want to read the Zim content on my Android device, but not change or append to it.

I use the Zim html export with a custom template to dump the content and then use a Python script to read the exported files, make some tweaks to create valid enml and then sync them to a dedicated Evernote notebook as read-only notes.

If there is interest in my script I'll try to find the motivation to make is usable for others and upload it to github, but it might still need further tweaks from the users before it works for them as I only handle the zim features I use myself (mostly text and html links), so other features (like images etc.) might not yet work.

I understand some people in this list have actually migrated from
Evernote to zim but I'm starting to be in desperate need to at least
some of the zim functionality on Android devices. None of the
suggestions I've seen so far in the list (I..e. Using a text editor) are
really practical.
I wonder if I could use the free (thus cloud) version of Evernote on
Android and somehow get the information I input accessible by zim on
Linux and Mac. Currently I have my zim notebook on Dropbox and use it
from my Linux and Mac machines. It is more a question of saving info
from Android to zim than the reverse. Any suggestion on this eventual
Evernote to zim bridge? I have never used Evernote and do not want to
try something that Evernote users know that is not worthwhile.
Obviously the real solution would be a zim app for Android but I think
this not being developed.
