Running Evernote in Docker using wine
There are a number of alternatives to accessing Evernote on Linux like Nevernote, Geeknote and Everpad.
As a long time user of Evernote and a Docker enthusiast it made sense to combine the two.
This work is based on : https://blog.jessfraz.com/post/docker-containers-on-the-desktop/
Ubuntu : 14:04
Evernote : 5.8.13
Wine : 1.7.4
The wine image is built using : https://registry.hub.docker.com/u/thshaw/wine/dockerfile/
The Evernote executable was downloaded from the official Evernote link : https://evernote.com/download/
docker run -d -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix -e DISPLAY=unix$DISPLAY --name evernote thshaw/evernote
The first time this runs it will run the Evernote setup. Just login and the sync will start.
To stop the container :
docker stop evernote
To start the container :
docker start evernote
If you see this message :
Make sure that your X server is running and that $DISPLAY is set correctly.
Run : xhost +
