Exporting notes as files

I have the following problem. I want to export child notes of my items to text files. Each text file should contain the note only plus a full bibliographic reference. My intention is to use these notes to other knowledge management tools to help improving my writing workflow.

Each text file should look like this:

"Note about paper x."

X.A and Y.B. How to do stuff. Journal, 2015.

I can't find a function to write individual files in Zotero. The only one I could find is Zotero.write(). Would you have a suggestion?
  • Why not write them to a single file with some unique set of delimiter between notes, then write a shell (or other) script to burst that file into multiples?

    Alternatively, you could query the sqlite instead of writing an export translator and create multipel files that way.

    I don't believe (though I'm not 100% sure) there's a way to do this straight with a Zotero translator.
  • I want to do the same thing. Did you ever find a solution?
  • You can't save multiple files from a translator which are not already attachments. If you want notes in separate files, you'll need either post-processing or a zotero plugin.
