EverNote is intended for archiving and creating notes in which photos, audio and saved web content can be embedded. Notes are stored in virtual "notebooks" and can be tagged, annotated, edited, searched, and exported.

This notebook shows how to load an Evernote export file (.enex) from disk.

A document will be created for each note in the export.

# lxml and html2text are required to parse EverNote notes
%pip install --upgrade --quiet lxml
%pip install --upgrade --quiet html2text
