Jong Importer - creating note from your favorite cloud service


Related to the topic creating notes from anywhere, if for a given reason, you want to use a website to write your notes, for example dropbox website of others, I made that toy that will allow you to import your wonderful notes automatically in joplin.
You will just need to set 4 parms and run a command and that’s it.

parms to be defined :

# path to the joplin terminal version
JOPLIN_BIN_PATH = /home/foxmask/.joplin-bin/bin/joplin
# path to the profile of the joplin client (terminal/desktop)
JOPLIN_PROFILE_PATH = /home/foxmask/.config/joplin-desktop
# path to the folder of the cloud storage service
joplin_import_folder = /home/foxmask/Dropbox/Applications/Joplin/letterbox/
# default folder where to import notes

then run

python jong_imp/go.py 


a blog post to see all the machinery working .


That’s pretty cool and could be useful to quickly write a note online, since there’s currently no web client for Joplin. At some point I will create a new page on the Joplin website and list projects like these.


One of the features missing in the JSON API is the possibility to define tags when creating a note, or to add a tag to a note, knowing its UUID


Since a few days, another use case is now fitted. You can now import JEX files from your dropbox (or other) to your joplin profiles.
Imagine, @ work, you can’t/don’t want to sync your dropbox and an USB stick is not allowed too.
You can at least use joplin locally, and then export your notes as JEX files.
Then you can upload the JEX files to your cloud services, and once at home launch jong_imp to sync your notes :slight_smile:
