The Evernote Organizer app allows users to review/edit/delete their existing notes or create new notes. Also allows to create new Notebooks. The app uses the official Evernote SDK for Java (which contains wrapper code) to call its Cloud APIFor security reasons, the user has to authorize the app to access their Evernote account.


  • The Evernote Organizer app renders a list of existing notebooks along with corresponding notes using the Evernote Cloud API services.
  • The app allows the user to preview the content of a Note along with options to Edit/Delete.
  • On choosing to Edit, the app will redirect the user to Evernote site which allows editions only on selected Note. Besides, the app also supports to create a simple Note/ Notebook.
  • In order to perform these actions, the app needs an access token to respective Evernote account. For security reasons the token is restricted to portlet session, in other words user has to obtain a new access token upon next visit/login. 
  • The number of Notes loaded per Notebook can be controlled by a configuration parameter as detailed below. A "load more" URL can be used to obtain further items. 



  • Obtain Evernote Organizer portlet application from the Liferay Marketplace.

  • Go to site page where you intend to add Evernote Organizer app.
  • Click “Add” → "Applications" and search for Evernote Organizer.


  • Authorize/Re-Authorize
    Before the portlet can do anything with the Evernote Cloud API, it needs to ask the user to authorize access to their account which internally generates an access token for the session. For security reasons, users are asked to Re-authorize upon new login. 
  • Note Preview
    The top portion of the portlet displays a hierarchy of Notebooks and associated Notes. Whereas Note preview pane allows the user to Edit the content or Delete the Note itself. 

  • Create Notebook/Note
    The bottom portion of the portlet allows the user to create a new Notebook or a Note in respective Notebook.
