I've recently decided to move from my old Evernote notes to Joplin. Exporting in .enex and then importing into Joplin was really easy.
But then, I wanted to export another notebook from the Turtl app I was using years ago (after evernote but before Joplin). From Turtl, it exported into Json backup file. There's no "Json import" in Joplin so I've looked for ways of changing from Json to Enex or MD. From here, it got so amazingly complicated.
I've ran into several different scripts (either found here or on gitlab), in Python or even in PHP. Thing is, i don't really know how to use them. I mean, i know just a little bit about computers, so I know I had to install python for example, and then try to run it via terminal, but I keep having errors (syntax error, name error not defined, etc.).
I don't actually know how to correctly run the script and I can't find any instructions for noobs like me that don't master coding, php, python... Most people just say "here's the script, try it !" but then don't explain what to do. And believe my, i've tried.
Is there anyone here that can help me with a "how-to/wiki" about running the script right and exporting the Turtl json backup file into enex (or even MD !), so that I can import all the notes to Joplin ? I've tried so many different things on the terminal, each time failed. It does look easy for most people but I must miss something...
That would be so nice of you. I'm actually out of solution now, and all I can do is ask someone for help.
Few things to know :
- OS : Windows 10
- Python version installed : 3.9
- Joplin version (even if there's nothing wrong with the desktop app since it works great and syncs well with phone app) : 1.7.11
- Different scripts I've tried (with no success) :
GitHub - rpgd60/simplenote2joplin: Process JSON file with exported notes from SimpleNote for import into Joplin
Turtl to markdown directory
Convert Journey.Cloud (Diary) JSON Export to Evernote Export (ENEX) which can be imported into Joplin · GitHub
Thank you very much for your help.
