Very cool! Just so you know, Evernote support isn't actually on our
roadmap , but it is a frequently requested feature by some of our
users , so I'm glad somebody has stepped up to start working on

We are all for interoperability between Tomboy and other note-taking
apps/services. You may run into problems if Evernote and Tomboy lack
some of the same features, but that's expected. If you want to work
on adding Evernote features into the core of Tomboy, it's best to
probably collaborate on that. But hopefully you'll find that you can
do a lot from a simple add-in. :-)

Yup. We also hang out in IRC, in the #tomboy channel on GIMPNet.
Good luck, have fun, and let us know if you need any help.
