I switch between browsers quite a lot, mostly between firefox and chromium-based ones depending on what I'm doing or my current mood. Because of this I haven't been able to rely on bookmarks from browser, and prefer somewhere centrol to keep links. Pocket has extensions for most browers, and gives a quite decent overlay UI for saving links and adding tags. The only thing I couldn't add was notes. I like to add short descriptions or notes and sometimes cross-link things to help remember and find things later.
linksync is a simple script that grabs items from the Pocket API that I've tagged with 'links', grabs some data from each, and adds a new item in my websites
links folder (as a draft). It will then pop up on my computer later. I'll maybe add a description or some additional tags, then save and publish the site. Eventually would like to automate that as well, but haven't decided how I want it to work yet. Probably just publish master will be simplest.
Quick recap of making a Pocket app:
- Create a Pocket Application and give it the Retreive permission.
- Manually went through the steps in the Pocket Authentication API Docs
- Add queries from the Pocket Retreive API
