Fyodor for extracting Kindle clippings

I discovered Fyodor on the forum here, but it got lost in the thread and I don’t think it received enough love so posting about it again.

I’ve tried a number of the tools mentioned in other posts to manage my Kindle clippings, most, if not all are too complex, too expensive or both (for my needs).

This little script is just perfect for me.

  1. Copy My Clippings.txt to my laptop
  2. Type (or copy and paste) fyodor 'My clippings.txt' 'path-to-vault' in a terminal
  3. Hit Enter/Return
  4. Find a .md file in my vault for each book containing all my highlights, notes and bookmarks.

It really is so simple, so easy and so free.
