Looking at the ways I can connect Tinderbox, Things and (for the time being) Evernote. Such as how to let Tinderbox import various items automatically, and e.g. the Things URL structure. It seems Tinderbox doesn’t have an Applescript vocabulary, but there’s ways around that.
Peter pointed me to the webarchive format and some tools to store pages that way, as part of my search on how to store a full webpage. I want to be able to store full pages with my bookmarking routine. Something I now do with Evernote, but am looking to replicate outside Evernote, as part of no longer ignoring the green elephant in the room.
Does anyone know how Evernote stores a full webpage in a note? For me storing a full page is key for bookmark management, but I also want to leave Evernote. Formats such as MHTML or webarchive are browser or even OS dependent. Is there something that does that script based, so I could run it in background?
Thanks for posting this Frank. I really love the notion of Wunderkammer, although my own mental image of my blog is probably closer to a Commonplace book, and I realise that in practice my Evernote collection is actually the real Commonplace book in my information processes, of which the blog is a selection and reflection tool.
This looks as the first potential replacement for Evernote I’ve come across. It is called Standard Notes, and comes open source and with full encryption. It allows for the server to be self-hosted to sync stuff across devices (stand alone everything is stored locally), and use your self-hosted cloud as the place for storage of attachments. They sell subscriptions to extended functionality, but those extensions you can also self-host. I’d have to take a closer look at how I might replace some of the key Evernote functionality with it, or arrange some of my additional wishes. See my earlier list on what I’m looking for. At first glance it looks like a thing worth testing. How about you Peter?
Is this article on Techcrunch about Evernote losing a range of high level people, seeking funding, and flatlining revenue growth for years, a warning that Peter and I should step up his efforts and my efforts to find a similarly versatile replacement?
