Delicious Inbox Exporter Ruby Script ==================================== Delicious does not provide any official means to export your inbox items, but for many users the inbox is a critical archive of personal data. This script will scrape your inbox page(s) from delicious.com and output a Netscape-style bookmarks HTML document. You can then import the bookmarks into your browser or into any bookmarking product that supports this basic standard. Use of this script is at your own risk. Run it too often and you may get blocked or banned from Delicious. The results worked for me and a few friends who volunteered to test it, but there may still be bugs. I invite you to submit your comments about this script to my blog post on the subject: http://blog.yetanotherjosh.com/past/2010/12/19/export_your_delicious_inbox_with_a_ruby_script/ Requirements ============ - ruby - rubygems - hpricot gem Instructions ============ Running this script requires a tiny bit of manual effort. You need to provide it with your delicious authentication cookies. This is easy, implemented securely, and instructions are given interactively when you run the script. You may optionally want to review the "output configuration" section of the script source and tweak settings related to how exported items should look. By default, all items will be additionally tagged with "inbox" and "from:delicious/johndoe", and the description will be appened with "[from John Doe]" -- where John Doe is the sending user. Run the script with the name of the output bookmarks HTML file as the first argument. For instance: ruby inboxexporter.rb inboxbookmarks.html Contributions ============= Please feel free to fork this, improve it, make it easier, and/or contact me with questions or pull requests.
