A usable, customizable commandline client to automate and manage your pocket collection.



Pocket is an application for managing a reading list of articles from the Internet.

This commandline client interfaces the pocket API and provides a way to interact with your pocket collection.

Using simple command sequences, routine tasks can be automated and reusable scripts can be created.


pockyt does NOT track, store, or monitor your usage and/or data. Moreover, pockyt interacts with the pocket API using local credentials and does not attempt to communicate with any other services.

Quick Start

pockyt supports Python 2.7+ and 3.4+ on Windows, macOS, & GNU/Linux platforms.

  1. pip install pockyt --upgrade
  2. pockyt reg
  3. Follow the prompts to connect your pocket account to pockyt.
  4. Refer the Documentation and Examples for usage info and ideas.


  • Get the latest 5 items' links & excerpts and save them to a file.

    pockyt get -n 5 -f '{link} - {excerpt}' -o readlater.txt
  • Get the oldest 10 items and delete them from Pocket.

    pockyt get -n 10 -r oldest -f '{id}' | pockyt mod -d -i redirect
