Pinboard to Instapaper to Kindle

This script is an attempt to keep articles, blog postings, tutorials, etc. organized, searchable and available on my Kindle 3 with WiFi.

What you will need

  • All bookmarks housed in Pinboard and marked as 'toread'
  • An Instapaper account setup to work with your Kindle
  • Kindle 3 with Wifi (so that your instapaper can be delivered to your @free.amazon.com address)

Setup

Copy config.sample.yml to config.yml and add your credentials.

The process

Mark items in Pinboard as 'toread' and once the script is run it will:

  • Parse your 'toread' bookmarks and get the most recent 20
  • Add them to your Instapaper and remove the 'toread' tag and add the 'instaliciousd' tag (useful for searching in the future)
  • Login to Instapaper, navigate to the "Manage My Kindle" area of the "Account" page and select "Send Now"
  • Your instapaper will be delivered to your Kindle
  • "Bulk Archive" the Unread items on your Instapaper homepage
