A quick lunchtime cli script inspired by a Hacker News comment.

It provides an export as a text file on the 'One Tab' page in the right hand corner. I wrote a small Python script to parse this text file and upload all my tabs to Pinboard.

It uploads urls from a OneTab url export to your Pinboard account.

You can find the url list by clicking "Export / Import URLs" on the top-right of the OneTab extension's home screen.


Install Leiningen (Clojure's build tool):

  1. Make sure you have a Java JDK version 6 or later.
  2. Download the script.
  3. Place it on your $PATH. (~/bin is a good choice if it is on your path.)
  4. Set it to be executable. (chmod 755 ~/bin/lein)

Grab the project source:

$ git clone
$ cd onetab-to-pinboard

Generate the stand-alone executable:

$ lein bin
Compiling onetab-to-pinboard.core
Creating standalone executable: /Users/danneu/Code/Clojure/onetab-to-pinboard/target/onetab-to-pinboard


Hand the executable your Pinboard auth token and a path to your OneTab url dump:

./onetab-to-pinboard --token danneu:AABBCCDDEEFFAABBCCDD \
                     --file  ../resources/url-export.txt
