Kindle Clippings Processor

The online service that I used to use for processing kindle clippings,, released a new version this week. And lo and behold, everything useful is behind a paywall.

I only needed it for processing My Clippings.txt to export it into Evernote, and it’s just file processing of standard format txt, so I thought I’d just whip up a simple version for my own use.

Initially I had planned to write a script for it, like the ruby one I did for cleaning up the mess of record files in kindle, after you delete books. But on second thought, it would be nice if other non-technical people can use it easily too. So, here it is:

On upload of a clippings file, it will have your highlights grouped by book title and sorted by location and timestamp.
