I would like a simple apple script developed which performs the following functions:
1) generates a new Evernote notebook (if one does not already exist) containing a new Evernote note (again if one does not already exist), using the Evernote dictionary (to the installed Evernote client), containing a table with the following contents:
- three columns or more (settable in the script)
- a row for each file contained in a specified directory, including:
-- a) the first table field with the file name with a hyperlink to the specific file in the directory,
-- b) the second table field as a Notes field
-- c) a third field (column entry) with a link to a new evernote note, with the file name as its title.
- it should also recurse into subdirectories
2) when run again, with an existing directory, notebook, etc ... it should compair the existing files in the directory with the notebook, and associated top level note containing the table, and append any newly added files in the directory or any existing or new sub-directories to the table in the format specified above. it does not need to delete any removed files, and any content in the table which is manually added should be retained (not lost).
I would be willing to consider alternative scripting such as python, but do want to be able to modify it internally.

To the extent possible, there should be a user interface with directory browsing capability to select the directory from which the Evernote list would be generated or edited.
3) I would like this to result in an OSX executable, including instructions as to how to set up the code environment to compile / run the source / script.
I would be willing to consider alternative scripting such as python, but do want to be able to modify it internally, and generate an executable from (or at least a batch).
The resulting code is to be owned by us, with no further obligations.
This trial project will likely lead to further larger projects.
