[![Build Status](](

Everex is an Evernote API client for Elixir. It uses a modified version of the
[Erlang Thrift library](,
together with compiled output from the
[Evernote Cloud API IDL files](

_**NOTE:** Everex is UNDER DEVELOPMENT, and is NOT ready for production use.
Feedback and contributions (via pull requests) are very welcome, of course!_


It's so far possible to list tags, list notebooks, find notes, and retrieve
note data.

An authentication token is required before connecting, and can be either a
user token retrieved
[using OAuth](
or a [developer token](

Everex now represents Thrift data structures as `structs`, to keep client usage
idiomatic and the data more self-explanatory. See examples below.

_**UPDATE:** There is now an example showing how to get access using the OAuth
authentication process. See `examples/oauth.exs`. This requires having an
[API key](, of course,
and exporting the environment variables EN_CONSUMER_KEY / EN_CONSUMER_SECRET
before running the example._


Add Everex to your dependencies in `mix.exs`:

  defp deps do
    [{:everex, "~> 0.1.1"}]

You also need to include `:everex` in your application list:

  def application do
    [applications: [:everex]]



_**NOTE:** It's assumed that you're testing in the Evernote Sandbox, with a
developer token._

For testing, you'll need an Evernote Sandbox account and a personal
[developer token](

    export EN_DEVELOPER_TOKEN="<your_token>"
    mix test
