I have note files on .local/share/plasma_notes from Plasmoid Sticky Notes:

ls  .local/share/plasma_notes/
3a8ccf28-69f5-4cf9-a3eb-5d206e9441  880c660c-5719-4535-a004-bc0ebcf0e9  ced419ac-2c04-4771-af6c-282c59792d

    They are just html files, so you can open them in a web browser. – Sparhawk Nov 29 '15 at 1:08
  • Yup, In fact, I've just did that, I've opened on a browser and copied and pasted on a new note, but I was looking for a smarter and more natural way of do it :) – sebelk Nov 29 '15 at 1:13

    I guess if you want to parse them in bulk you could send them through w3m or similar. e.g. to dump them in a single file, w3m -T text/html ~/.local/share/plasma_notes/* > parsed_notes, or to dump them in separate files, for i in ~/.local/share/plasma_notes/*; do w3m -T text/html $i > ${i}_parsed ; done. – Sparhawk Nov 29 '15 at 1:20
