Local Quip Backup

Simple command-line script that generates a directory with a snapshot of your Quip account, based on what data can be exported via the API. Documents are represented as HTML.

Running

./main.py --access_token="..." --output_directory=/path/to/dir

You can obtain a personal access token via quip.com/api/personal-token. The output directory will be created if it does not exist already. To only back up a subset of your documents, you can use the --root_folder_id flag. If you wish to target an alternate Quip server, you can use the --quip_api_base_url flag.

Caveats

The following items are not currently backed up:

  • Attachments to conversations
  • Images in documents
  • Contacts

You may run into rate limiting issues depending on the size of your account.

Resuming of interrupted backups is currently not supported.
