Today, I made a few highlights in my Kindle on the way to work. Then, I wanted to throw all the text somewhere and do something with it. Searching
kindle api yielded unsatisfactory results, but
kindle ruby led me to a kindle-highlights ruby .gem that scrapes the kindle website and makes the data available for reuse.
@client = KindleHighlights::Client.new(username, password) @client.books # book_id's for hash keys, 'highlights' for hash values
My Kindle Highlights are viewable online here, and are updated at least once per week, by an automated job.
