Automate Journaling with KM and Evernote



I created a basic macro that automates my journaling process with KM and Evernote. I hope you get some value out of it.


Hey Adolfo,

Let’s see if we can speed that up a bit by removing need for a web browser.

I’m using plain text for this demonstration, but styled text can be inserted via AppleScript by using HTML in the text body.

Awesome, no need for a text expansion app and brilliant using straight AppleScript to insert the text. Great job, i’m going to fiddle with the html for formatting per your suggestion.

Hey Adolfo,

Here’s a super simple example to get you started.

# dMod: 2018/03/11 22:54 
# Appl: Evernote 2
# Task: Basic note creation with an HTML body.
# Libs: None
# Osax: None
# Tags: @Applescript, @Script, @Evernote_2, @Note, @Creation, @HTML, @Body

set noteTitle to "My Goofy Note Title"

set htmlContent to "
      <b>Brazil nuts</b> are <i>delicious</i>!

tell application "Evernote 2"
   set newNote to create note title noteTitle notebook "Test_01" with html htmlContent
end tell



Hmm this is not working did os x 10.14.1 kill applescript execution or something?


Hey Adolfo,

No, but Mojave has caused a number of issues. Look at this for some answers:
