(Archived) Google Reader's "Send to" feature

Recommended Posts

Google announced today the addition of a "send to" feature in Google reader, basically allowing for the rss item to be easily sent to sites like Twitter and Digg. There is also the option to add custom sites, and they give an example of how this could be done by adding fields (e.g.title) to the URL:

Name: Google Bookmarks

URL: http://www.google.com/bookmarks/mark?op ... pup&bkmk=${url}&title=${title}

Icon URL: http://www.google.com/favicon.ico

Could a note be added to the web version of Evernote in this manner?

I toyed with the Javascript that makes up the "Clip to Evernote" bookmarklet but GReader wouldn't let me start with JS, and couldn't figure out how to manipulate the Evernote URL plus GReader's variables, but then thought to check the "Evernote Addicts" room on FriendFeed, and sure enough, someone had posted how to do it.

From http://blog.slaven.net.au/archives/2009 ... le-reader/:

Stealing from the Evernote Web Clipper bookmarklet, you can create a custom ’send-to’ destination like this:

1. Go to Google Reader and click on ‘Settings’ then ‘Send To’

2. Click on the ‘Create A Custom Link’ button

3. In the form that appears put ‘Evernote’ in the Name field, http://www.evernote.com/clip.action?title=${title}&url=${url} in the Url field and http://www.evernote.com/favicon.ico in the Icon Url field

4. Click ‘Save’

Knock yourselves out! :)
