rebloggr

Utility to transfer all of your posts from one Tumblr blog to another via reblogging.

WARNING: this tool deletes the posts from the original blog after reblogging!

Install with

Download one of the pre-built binaries for your platform on the Releases tab.

Alternatively install from source (Requires a working Go installation):

go get -u github.com/mrobinsn/rebloggr

Use

You must register an "application" with Tumblr to get a Consumer Key and Consumer Secret.

Setup environment (or optionally use CLI flags):

export REBLOGGR_CONSUMER_KEY=HKetaxxxxxxxxxp8ZTJVE
export REBLOGGR_CONSUMER_SECRET=zb4twxxxxxxxxxwPZoLB
export REBLOGGR_CALLBACK_URL=https://github.com/mrobinsn/rebloggr

Generate an OAUTH 1.0 token so that the tool can act on behalf of your Tumblr account:

$ rebloggr token
(1) Go to: https://www.tumblr.com/oauth/authorize?oauth_token=hQoSxxxxxktWH3
(2) Grant access, you should be redirected to a page with a "oauth_verifier" value in the URL.
(3) Enter that verification code here:
uayQxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx5z

Token: LGwduayQxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx5z4QCx
Secret: jFjuayQxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx5z6UQZ

Token written to .token

This will write a .token file to your current directory with a valid OAUTH token. You should delete this file after you are finished with the application.

Now that you have a token, you can run the reblog command:

$ rebloggr reblog

Reblogged 8 post(s)!

It's that easy!

Keep in mind that Tumblr enforces an account limit of 250 posts per day. So depending on how many posts you have to move, it may take multiple days. If this happens you will see the following error output:

You have hit the limit of 250 posts per day, try running again after 24hrs.

Since the tool deletes each post after it re-blogs it, you can just run the tool again the next day and it will pick back up where it left off.

Contributing

Currently, I've smushed everything into one main.go file, and it could use some clean-up/organization if anyone feels up to the task. Specifically the reblog function has a high cyclomatic complexity due to its length.

Pull requests are welcome. I built this tool to help my wife move ~1200 posts across her blogs, but I went ahead and open sourced it in the hopes that my work will help someone else.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
