Where to stash extra metadata in EN notes
Posted 08 June 2011 - 06:51 AM
I was wondering if anyone had some insights about where one might store extra metadata in notes- that is, data that would tell your own (third party) app how to present notes, that aren't used by Evernote itself.
For example, notes in Evernote already can store things like "create date" "location" "tag" etc. but say you created an app where you'd also want to store e.g. the "priority" of a note, or data about where it sits in a hierarchy that applies to your own app, but not to Evernote's own system.
You'd want this data to be stored in EN for sync purposes, but you wouldn't want it to be edited by the user by accident from within EN (as it could disrupt the note's functionality within your app), and you wouldn't want to co-opt any field that EN actually *does* use... is there a best practice for things like this?

just try it and add your custom attribute to - say - the div tag. You will see that the Evernote service will reject your ENML (the "Evernote blessed HTML"), You don't need to write code, just try it using http://enml-editor.ping13.net/. You will get an error message.
