have ruby, then install the following gems
gem install nokogiri gem install mechanize gem install yajl gem install active_support
just clone it
git clone email@example.com:jamster/Delicious-Scraper.git
ruby scrape_delicious.rb -u [YOUR FAVORITE LINKER] -v # -v to see it in action
You probably want to output to some file, as this just dumps to standard out. so it would co something like this:
ruby scrape_delicious.rb -u jayamster > jayamsters_links.txt
The output is in JSON so you can then do what you want with it.
The data is an array of Link hashes. Some of them have date, but it's all in order so you can extrapolate the dates by cycling through.
Sample Data (My Links)
See jayamsters_links.json (note it comes out in a one line string and this file is tidy'd up)
