AppleScript Evernote to WordPress

, , ,

This is an AppleScript I wrote to automatically post weekly overviews of bookmarks I made in Evernote, as a Suggested Reading post on my WordPress blog.

set singletaglist to {}
set multitaglist to {}
set alltaglist to {}
set allbulletlist to {}

--get the notes from Evernote
tell application "Evernote"
set query_string to "notebook:\"linklog\" created:day-7" --get notes since last week
set notities to find notes query_string --gives you list of relevant notes
set notenum to count of notities
repeat with notitie in notities
--for every note fetch title, tags and source
set titel to title of notitie
set bron to source URL of notitie
set taglist to tags of notitie
set numtags to number of items in taglist
--the taglist needs to be processed
repeat with counter from 1 to numtags
set tagtest to name of item counter of taglist
--if tag already encountered it goes to multitaglist
if (number of items in alltaglist is 0) then
copy tagtest to end of alltaglist
else
if (alltaglist contains tagtest) then
copy tagtest to end of multitaglist
--if not encountered it goes to all tags
else
copy tagtest to end of alltaglist
end if
end if
end repeat
--fetch content and cut down to first line
set inhoud to ENML content of notitie --gets you en xml, we want text between and

set end of allbulletlist to thisbullet
end repeat
end tell
-- we got what we need from Evernote
-- we now have a list of all items, but need to look at tags to create the title of post
-- I want a title like Suggested reading: tag1, tag2, tag3 and more
