It's a bookmarking database that keeps a copy of all your bookmarks in your computer, but automatically syncs to your other devices. Similar to what Chrome and Safari do between your desktop and mobile devices.
Although it's built particularly for Kozmos (getkozmos.com), you can build a service that syncs with that.
P.S If you'd like to build an import manager, you can use Kozmos' parsing library; https://github.com/kozmos/bookmark-backup-parser
Some projects help you with this by featuring a quick rundown of similar software on their website/repository readme along with links to the repositories. I always appreciate that.
Let's say there's a dominant contender in this space that always blows any Show HN out of the water. So what? That should be a different post. If we're going to see ourselves as a group of hackers, then we should be able to talk about each other's standalone work. It's just become super corny when these threads are used as marketing for other projects.
Someone else's Show HN should not be an avenue for marketing your project, plain and simple. Maybe people will start organically talking/comparing to a competitor, but even that is different from the ol "hey everyone, here's my alternative!" which is just sheepish.
Time to leave the theater so other people can enjoy the show.
This is the killer feature I've always been missing from so many bookmark managers.
Atm I use Shaarli but I want to preserve my bookmarks as they are now for the future.
I will definitely look into improving the archiving feature through pull requests.
What it seems to be missing is an addon or bookmarklet to quickly bookmark pages from the active browser tab and now way to import large collections into the database.
I'll test it out to see if the database can handle my bookmark collection (which should be approaching about 7000 links by now)
Is there any tool out there? I don't want to export the bookmarks from Firefox but something that I can use from Firefox or import into Firefox again after organizing.
We launched the latest version of Gurn (https://gurn.io) a few months back, it does bookmarks a little differently though. You assign keywords to your URLs, can collect multiple URLs under a single keyword, and sort them into lists. You can then invite others to collaborate on those lists.
You can then navigate to them directly through the browser bar. We currently support chrome and firefox with IE, Edge, and Safari all being worked on at the moment.
It's aimed mostly at teams but works really well individuals as well. I'm building the thing so take this with a pinch of salt, but I couldn't live without it now.
Just a FYI: your certificate for www.gurn.io does not work on gurn.io, so when you link gurn.io, I'm getting a "invalid certificate" error.
Edit: just created an account and I can't find where the import for bookmarks are? I've installed the browser extension as well, but no import actions available there either.
> gurn.io uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for www.gurn.io Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN
Finally, been waiting for so long for this. You have to pay premium to search with the tags....seriously
As your solution is self hosted, it is good. Wish I knew Go tools to use it.
What do you mean?
You only need Go if you're wanting to develop on the project, or if the developer never released binaries.
Any plans for a browser integration/plugin? I save a lot of bookmarks, sometimes even multiple at once (with tree style tab).
To clarify, it won't download the full HTML, only the content part of the webpage. It works by using go-readability, which strips unnecessary elements from a webpage.
