Mendeley2Kindle

A simple exporting utility for Mendeley to Kindle.
This app exports your documents and collections in Mendeley to Kindle device through filesystem and "collections.json".
After exporting, you may need to restart your kindle for applying "collections.json".
THIS IS A EXPERIMENTAL APPLICATION. USE AT OWN YOUR RISK.

Notes:
  • Synchronization
It compares each file(MD5 based) and transfers pdf if needed.
So there are no transfer when there are no modified or added documents
in the collection.
  • Exporting collections
Due to the limitation of kindle, currently you need to
restart your kindle after transferring collections.
You can restart the device from "Menu -> Setting -> Menu -> Restart".
It may take 1-2 minutes.
Also as far as I know, the kindle need to be registered if you wanna
use collections.

The discussion of internal system of managing collections is here:

  • Exporting documents
Currently, mendeley2kindle only supports exporting local-stored
pdf files (or aother atacched file).
So a document without pdf will not be copied to kindle.
Exporting abstract instead of pdf is under consideration.
  • Exporting annotation
Currently, exporting annotation data is not supported(under consideration).
  • File location in kindle
pdfs: `KINDLEPATH`/documents/mendeley2kindle/`MD5 of the file`/`original file name`.pdf
collection data: `KINDLEPATH`/system/collections.json

If synchronization is finished successfully, the timestamp of collection data will be renewed.
