Best way to pull and sync highlights and notes across different koreader devices

Use case. I read on my Paperwhite, android tablet, upcoming boox tablet and android phone .

I use sync thing to keep my home directory in sync across devices


Syncing progress works great.

But wondering how to improve the highlight experience so that if I make a highlighted passage on one device to propagate to another. I believe this is solved with the use of sync thing correct because annotations are stored in the same folder as the ebook file ?

Next let's say I want to export the highlights to computer or WebApp to search thru them later. Is Evernote the only way to do this ? What about other options ? I read about Joplin an open sourced equivalent but I need to host that ? Any other options?

Thanks !!

The sync plugin only syncs the reading position. If you highlight different passages or the same book in different devices each device will hold highlights and annotations of the things done in that device.

I guess you can export highlights device by device to html/json files and then join them together on your computer.

Also: 3rd party apps that sync documents between devices won't handle metadata correctly as the path of metadata is device dependant.

Evernote was deprecated, Joplin still works but the setup is a bit harder and you'll need to effectively run the app on your computer at the moment you try to export your notes.

Didn't know Evernote was deprecated. Sounds like I should look into Joplin

There is another solution. Only read these eBooks on one device.

But the issue of how to get the highlights and notes is still am issue. I have a feeling I'll use the box as my primary device going forward

There's a utility that helps with this, but it's still a manual process.
