emacs Evernote

You never know where is the key point.  At the very beginning, I thought the most difficult part will be the configuration for Evernote mode and w3m will be the easiest.  Guess what?  The w3m mode cost me around entire week including installed a brand new ubuntu.  I only spent 3 minutes on evernote mode, so i said you know how much time you need just only for a tiny problem.   Please treat any programmer/administrator well.

The official website for the evernote mode project is at:  http://www.evernote.com/about/developer/projects.php
The reference document at: http://emacser.com/evernote-mode.htm

Windows 7


  1. Install w3m and configure all the thing well (check my other articles)
  2. Run cygwin terminal (assuming cygwin is already installed)
  3. Enter ~/.emacs.d/site-lisp
  4. svn checkout http://emacs-evernote-mode.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ emacs-evernote-mode-read-only
  5. Change the folder name emacs-evernote-mode-read-only to emacs-evernote, you can leave it as is without modification.  I do this only for my personally consistence requirement.
  6. Enter emacs-evernote/ruby
  7. ruby setup.rb
  8. Get cygwin-mount.el (http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/cygwin-mount.el)
  9. .emacs
    (add-to-list ‘load-path “~/.emacs.d/site-lisp”)
    (require ‘cygwin-mount)
    (setq evernote-enml-formatter-command ‘(“w3m” “-dump” “-I” “UTF8” “-O” “UTF8”)) ; option
    (add-to-list ‘load-path “~/.emacs.d/site-lisp/emacs-evernote”)
    (require ‘evernote-mode)
    (global-set-key “C-cec” ‘evernote-create-note)
    (global-set-key “C-ceo” ‘evernote-open-note)
    (global-set-key “C-ces” ‘evernote-search-notes)
    (global-set-key “C-ceS” ‘evernote-do-saved-search)
    (global-set-key “C-cew” ‘evernote-write-note)
    (global-set-key “C-cep” ‘evernote-post-region)
    (global-set-key “C-ceb” ‘evernote-browser)

That it, enjoy!
