KoHighlights is a utility for viewing and converting the Koreader's history files to simple text.

  • v0.3.4.0
    • Delete some or all the highlights from a book.
    • Copy some or all the highlights from a book in the clipboard.
    • Highlights are now a list with items that can be selected individually for copy/deletion, not just a text.
    • Highlight's elements like page, date and even highlight text can be individually turned on/off.
    • Fixed: If there was more than one highlight in a page, only the first was displayed.
    • Fixed: Right click menu appeared even if the book list was empty.
  • v0.3.2.0
    • Page & Date reference for each highlight.
    • Option to show/hide page & date info that also affects if that info is going to be written in the saved text files.
    • Highlights are now sorted by page number.
    • Right clicking and selecting "View Book" did nothing.
    • If another file was in an '.sdr' folder (like an '.old' backup file) it could be selected instead of the normal metadata file.
    • Saved texts were displayed wrong in Windows Notepad due to Unix line breaks.
  • v0.3.1.2
    • New "Book Info" panel.
    • Option to delete the .sdr folders for specific books or even the books themselves.
    • Option to view a book with the system's viewer.
    • Added "Book Type" and "Read percent" columns.
    • Color-coded rows based on Finished/Completed state and the presence or not of the actual book.
  • v0.2.1.1
    • Added a "Modified" date column and option to pass
      folders or files as arguments.

What does "Batch Convert" mean, in this case? Are they being converted to simple .txt format/files?

The History files processing should be a real good thing for those working with highlights. Perhaps Markismus could place his notes in the History files, when he makes his note taking plugin/wiget.

Luck;
Ken

Yes.
There are two ways to do this.
One, is to select a directory with many history files, and a directory for the output text files.
The other, is to just drag and drop many files on the program and it will convert the ones that end to ".lua" AND have highlights in them to text files in the same directory as the dropped files.

Just find out that KoReader has its own place here!

It would be very nice if the moderators could move this thread there, where it would be more helpful.

Thanks

I did add a post with a link to the utility's Github page. Since your utility should work with any KOReader installation where the history/.sdr files can be accessed, it should get moved.

Luck;
Ken

New release of KoHighlights

Updated the first post for more info.

In a nutshell, I just release the v2 of the KoHighlights utility.

Its a different application, written from scratch using Pyside (Qt for Python) that has the same name with the old one because it has the same goal of reading and converting the KoReader's highlights to text.
But it has a nicer interface and its ready to also import the notes that the great Koreader developers will implement on day :-p

Very nice, thank you! And right at the time when the Evernote plugin ceased to work!

Tried installing but it won't work because it will not accept my Visual Studio installation (which I downloaded from MS).
Edit: I'm on Win 10.

I checked with the files that the installer suggests if missing from your system (Visual C++ 2008 9.0.30729.6161) also from Microsoft (x64, x86) in Win 10, and it works OK.
What is your version?
Is it x64?
Maybe you should also install the x86 version.

I actually tried both versions (system is 64bit but I also installed the 32bit version), with and without reboot and all, to no avail...

Edit: Great! I just had the system install a bunch of updates and repaired the two installations and now it works! Thanks for your help!

Edit 2: Fantastic tool!
