Notion Export Enhancer

Takes a export .zip and enhances it by:

  • Removing all Notion IDs from the end of folders and files
  • Adds Unicode Emoji to start of folder/file names if it was in your Notion notes
  • Retruncates note titles to 200 characters instead of 50
  • Applies Notion's modification time to the file data itself
  • Moves root md files into the folder with their name, giving them a name like ! instead so they sort to the top.

folders with emojis


  • Remove empty notes (ones with only links)?
  • Rewrite csv + md tables into md tables where appropriate?
  • .exe instead of .py?
  • Image captions should become MD alt image text, not a separate paragraph
    • Would require exporting everything ourselves, paragraph after image is ambiguous

Supports Python 3.6+

Usage from CLI

  • Export your notion workspace
    • You can export a single workspace from Settings > [Workspace] Settings > Export Content > Export all workspace content
