Note on the project status!

This project is still here, and as far as I know the script still works. But as I don't use Kippt anymore at the very moment, I also don't use this script.

This Project is not actively maintained aynmore! Feel free to submit bugfixes/changes and I'll try to apply them - but I won't fix bugs or add features for now.

How to do?

  1. Clone this repository

  2. Create a database with a table called "clips" (see database schema file in the cloned directory)

  3. Copy config.sample.php to config.php and enter your local database credentials together with your username and API-Token You can find your API-Token by visiting the following "page" with your browser while being logged in:

  4. Run the script : php -f kipptBackup.php
