Running Evernote watcher doesn't created Marked file

I've followed the instructions provided for the Marked Bonus Pack and I've kept the same paths so I've created a 'Scripts' folder in my home directory and placed the evernote.rb watcher in there. From the terminal I run the script. No messages are provided but it looks like the process is running. However when I look in my home directory I don't see the Marked file. Can you think of any reason why this wouldn't be showing?

I'm running Mac OS X 10.7.4 and have the latest version of Marked App installed.

    Sorry for the slow response. Evernote keeps moving things around on me. I'm doing some testing and will update soon.

    Hi Brett,

    I noticed that Evernote has changed visually a fair bit in it's most recent update so no doubt a few things have changed under the hood too. Thanks for the updated and let me know when you've had the chance to test it. I wasn't sure if it was something that I had forgotten to do or if things had changed. It would be great to get some kind of link-up between Marked and Evernote.

    Well, I found the issue but there's a new one. The HTML that Evernote returns now isn't parseable with default tools. It's actually quite a mess. I'll play some more with processing, but this is looking harder by the minute.

    That doesn't sound good. They obviously don't like people messing with their output. With all the changes you'd have thought they could have just thrown in processing of markdown as part of the package. Fingers crossed though, hopefully the parser can be tweaked in some way to deal with their mess.

    How's the battle going? Have you been able to make any progress at all?

    Not yet, sorry. I'll tap my contacts at Evernote if I need to, hopefully get something working in time for the next release without requiring external scripts.

    Ok no worries. I thought I'd just check to see if you'd made any breakthroughs yet. I know it's probably not going to be easy with the mess that Evernote include. Good luck and keep me posted.
