I'm interested in some form of sync with Evernote too. I use Tomboy
both on my netbook and my work laptop. Having them sync'd through the
cloud would allow me to access them from my mobile (Android based
smartphone in case you're interested) easily.
even though this idea sounds great, I was wondering how exactly a
plugin or other kind of software implementing this feature should
Sending note files as they are, with tags and all kind of metadata,
probably isn't a good idea: tuu much stuff that gets in the way when
you try to read the note through web/desktop app/mobile app. Some kind
of editing must be done before sending the content to Evernote (using
the HTML export feature maybe?).
Even if we/you can manage to export the notes in a readable format,
how would the plugin know which note it has to update when you start
the sync? Some exploration of the capabilities of Evernote's desktop
app (closed source and Windows only, though it runs fine in wine) may
do the trick here, if there's some way to access its database
directly. Syncing through it could even be simple and wouldn't be too
restricting, because everyone using Evernote probably has the desktop
app installed on every pc where he/she has Tomboy.
I'll try and browse the docs of the app. Has anyone started
researching on this subject?
Do you have any idea about how this feature should work?

Yes, Tomboy on Windows runs fine. Some kind of Android
port/app/whatever would be nice too ;)
Jokes aside, and sorry for the partial thread hijacking: does anyone
here know whether there's some kind of application around to read/sync
tomboy notes on an Android device?
