Flipboard > Evernote via Pocket and ITTT (Read It Later Articles)

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I'd be really grateful for any help someone can give implementing a solution I found to saving full articles from Flipboard to Evernote.

 

We've all seen the Pocket + ITTT solution whereby you send a Flipboard article to Pocket and ITTTT sends it to Evernote, but that only pulls an excerpt and I want the full article.

 

This solution I found seems to enable the saving of full articles: https://github.com/m00min/AddToEvernote 

 

However after trying for hours to get it to work, I'm admitting defeat and seeking help! 

 

- I set up a URL and hosting account, let's call it: www.myurl.com

- I created a folder on that domain: www.myurl.com/evernote

- I uploaded the add_to_en.php file from here https://github.com/m00min/AddToEvernote/blob/master/add_to_en.php

- I edited and uploaded the settings.php file from here https://github.com/m00min/AddToEvernote/blob/master/settings.php

- I tried to work out what, if anything to do with https://github.com/m00min/AddToEvernote/blob/master/css.php but couldn't see any instructions so just ignored it!

 

Then I started to get lost:

 

- I went to the IFTTT Webhook PHP Github page (https://github.com/captn3m0/ifttt-webhook) and tried to follow those instructions.

- Changing the ifttt.com wordpress server to http://ifttt.captnemo.in was straightforward

- I then uploaded the xmlrpc.php file (https://github.com/captn3m0/ifttt-webhook/blob/master/xmlrpc.php) to myurl.com (not sure if this was the right thing to do or not).

 

On to the Emogrifier step:

 


- Couldn't find any PHP code.


- Uploaded composer.json as a PHP file to myurl.com (admittedly clutching at straws)

 

I activated Pocket in ITTT and then tried to create a new recipe but got lost again.

 

- I typed: “{{Url}}<a href="http://www.myurl.com/evernote/add_to_en.php?salt=password"></a>” but that didn't seem to be correct as the recipe failed.

 

After reading up everywhere and trying everything I can think of, I'm throwing myself on the mercy of strangers.

 

Would really appreciate any advice - trying to do this as a surprise gift to my wife who loves evernote and clipboard!

 

Many thanks

1. Pick an article in Flipboard, and send to Pocket.

2. Set up an IFTT - if Pocket then Evernote - this will create a bibliography of articles archived from Pocket in Evernote.

3. Read the article in Pocket and then delete the article.

4. At this point the article is moved into the archived area of Pocket, and number 2 kicks in!

 

Now, you indicated that you wanted to save the full article. The method described above will just save the link to the article in question, to read the full article again, just click the link. Also saves space in Evernote.

HI David

 

Thanks for the response, unfortunately as you say (and as I said in my original post) that method just saves an excerpt from the article, I'm looking for someone to help me understand how to put the solution I posted into action - which I know saves the entire article.

??? When I click on my links the full article pops up. ??

Yes, but I don't want to have click the link. I want to be able to store the entire article rather than have to click the excerpt.

I know this is an older thread but I think it's worth mentioning that I can understand the reason for wanting to save the whole article in Evernote.

If you save the link, and a year from now you revisit it only to find that either the structure is different or the article has been removed, it can be impossible to find that information again. Whereas if you save the whole page in Evernote, you'll always have it to go back to and to search through from Evernote. It may take up more space, but if you have the bandwidth, it's worth it. I just wanted to clarify for those who may come across this thread in the future and want to know why one would prefer the entire article vs just the link.

Having said that, I'm looking for an easier way to migrate from Flipboard to Evernote myself. I've used Flipboard as a make shift Evernote until I found the real thing and am in need of a way to migrate all content over to Evernote.

Hi

 

So the 'fix' (bodge) i have come up with for this is:

 

1. Email link to pocket (captures entire content and format of article)

2. Open pocket, send to evernote (sends all content and formatted article to specified notebook in evernote)

3. Delete / Archive in Pocket

 

Adds an extra step, but it does what I need.
