Evernote has changed how they handle notes on the file system, so the watcher script in the extras bundle does not work. I've updated it here:

    I ran into some trouble with the script (problems that were left over from the original, not stuff you added, I think). I rewrote it, incorporating your updates, and posted it here <https://gist.github.com/5327167>. I'll add it to the bonus pack as soon as I get a chance. There are a few things I'm supposed to update there but I'm losing track… Damn this scattered brain.

    Actually, I just realized I could make it work without requiring the username. It just recurses all the account directories in the folder now, which shouldn't increase disk access at all since I imagine it's rare to have more than one account on a machine, and two or three wouldn't do much harm.

    Cleaned up a couple stupid mistakes of mine, too. It's all in the gist if you want to try it out.

    I am trying to get the everwatch script to work and not having any luck. It seems like the files in the bonus pack are from 2011. Do I need to get an updated script, which seems to be referenced in this thread? Is there a better way to do this with Marked 2?

    Evernote has changed too many things for me to keep up with. It's all very hacky, and to the best of my knowledge there is no current working script. Haven't tried for a while, though, as I don't use Evernote much.
