Webmarks is a bookmarking app, which lets you choose your server or provider for storing all data. It is a user-first, open-source alternative to proprietary, hosted bookmarking services like e.g. Delicious, Pinboard, et cetera. Learn more.

Every contribution and all feedback are much appreciated and will be responded to timely. The rest of this README concerns only developers and potential contributors. For general support requests, please open an issue.


The app is currently available in the following languages:

  • English
  • German
  • French

Webmarks will use your browser language settings to determine which language is shown.

Translating the app to a new language is simple:

  1. Copy a language folder in app/locales/ to a new one, using the two-letter ISO code of the language
  2. Edit app/locales/[language]/translations.js.
  3. If you want to test the translations, run the app locally (see below for instructions) and open it in a browser that is set to the language you added.



You will need the following things properly installed on your computer.


  • git clone <repository-url> this repository
  • change into the new directory
  • npm install
