[App] Export Kindle Highlights to Markdown

Hey Guys,

I have been using the Kindle Oasis for the last year. I have books from Amazon and side-loaded books on my kindle.

I use Calibre for book management and Kindle Mate to manage my highlights and vocabulary words (delete words, delete duplicated highlights, ...)

Exporting highlights from kindle mate gives an excel sheet which never felt satisfactory to me. I wanted a well formatted PDF or HTML that I could save or print and that is organized by section/chapter/headings.

What I did, is create a new highlighting/noting method I use on my books while reading (special notes and symbols), so that when I give the clippings.txt file to my program, it generated a markdown(.md) file with all the highlights.

I then use Atom or an online tool (link in usage doc below) to save that to HTML or PDF (I don't remember why I didn't go for HTML directly, but it was a hassle). Anyway, Atom allows you to set your CSS styling when viewing a markdown file, which is good.

I just felt like sharing it, as I just added a basic GUI (it was only a script before)

It only works with English books for now, and I am not sure what kind of bugs might pop up. It is currently working for me.

If you're interested, read the usage document here

I do not have any real github experience to get this on github, so it is on my Google Drive for now
(the python script is there if you want to check it out too. P.S: it is a bit messy)
