How to access Evernote API in Firefox/Chrome extensions

4 posts in this topic

Hi Folks

I am willing to fiddle with Evernote API and use it Chrome/FF extensions. What I learnt that so far no JS API available which makes me to think to make a middle tier service in php/python and let my extension to access Evernote via that service.

The place where I am confused is authentication. How do I make a user to authenticate with Evernote from a browser extension? If it;s showing a html static page which then redirects to EverNote Login Page and store access token etc at server side. How will my extension remember logged In details and make calls to service and create/retrieve notes in my Chrome extension.

The workflow of App is following:

  • User will be able to login on Evernote via Extension(by accessing page of Logging).
  • After successful logging notes will be retrieved via middle tier service in Chrome Extension via Ajax Request.
  • USer can then post note via AJAX call to service which will then eventually store in Evernote via its API

Please guide me.
