[fr] Je bidouille avec Pocket, IFTTT, Evernote, et Tumblr.
This is incomplete tinkering. More questions than solutions. Welcome into my ecosystem for dealing with other people’s content.
When I read things, I publish snippets (my “notes”) to Digital Crumble. I use Evernote to store all kinds of data and content, and am moving towards storing more and more in it. (No I’m not freaked out by the hacking episode, which I think they handled well.)
Here’s what I’d like to do:
- when I post something to Tumblr, have it go to Evernote too (here’s the IFTTT recipe I’m using)
- when I add something to Pocket, have the whole web page go to Evernote (no satisfying solution so far, tinkering with a recipe to add a PDF version of the page in a note, but using the Evernote Web Clipper is way cleaner)
I love IFTTT, but get frustrated that the triggers and actions associated to the channels I use are sometimes insufficient for my needs. And yes, this is probably often due to limitations placed by the service APIs (I’m still reeling from the loss of Twitter triggers). For example, the ingredients for the Pocket triggers only contain an excerpt of the saved page, and not the full content. Shame!
So, I might go back to just saving my “pages to read later” to Evernote, but it’s not quite as friendly as Pocket for reading and managing them.
