Shaarli: Self-hosted del.icio.us alternative (sebsauvage.net)

I've finally switched to pinboard.in - the browser addons are definitely not as good, though.

Pinboard is great, the bookmarklet is the only addon I need. It's got one of the best tech communities out there, and it's basically del.icio.us in its heyday. Thank you, Maciej.

Ever tried to pin something on github.com? All the major browsers have disabled bookmarklets that conflict with content security policies.

This is a frustrating browser bug that, as far as I can tell, is limited to Firefox. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=866522

I've been lobbying people to complain about it for years now, as many Pinboard users find it deeply frustrating.

Hi Maciej, I doubt that will ever be fixed. Would you consider hosting a userscript like that mentioned in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=866522#c38

I can't recall ever having a problem pinning stuff from github. Just to sanity check my own memory, I tried it just now. It worked fine.

edit: and this was using the 'popup with tags' bookmarklet from pinboard's howto page [1]

[1] https://pinboard.in/howto/

"Content Security Policy: The page's settings blocked the loading of a resource at self ("script-src https://assets-cdn.github.com https://collector-cdn.github.com")." for me

I just tried to pin https://github.com/ircv3/ircv3-specifications/issues/77 with the popup with tags bookmarklet. I get no response from either it or Delicious' bookmarklet. AFAICR this issue is years old - https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=866522

I think it is a browser specific bug. I use Firefox, and it doesn't work.

If you're using Chrome, I found Pinput to be the best of the bunch: https://github.com/1000ch/pinput

That's some tidy Javascript code. I'm mostly using Firefox these days, unfortunately.

Also a pinboard user--it's fast, minimal, and reliable. Definitely recommended.

One more chrome extension recommendation: https://github.com/bertrandom/pinboard-keyboard-shortcut

It overrides the default "add bookmark" shortcut (Ctrl+D/Cmd+D), which is very nice if you have built a habit of pressing that every time you find something interesting.

I've been using an osx native app [1], very fast and works on all browsers. (just a happy user)

If you're an Alfred user, https://github.com/spamwax/alfred-pinboard is the best way I've found to add links to Pinboard.

Looks a lot like Diigo which I am using nowadays. Any advantages to pinboard?

Definitely not as featureful as something like this, but when Delicious started to go down the pan I switched to a simple Ruby script and a Dropbox-synced data file between all my machines. Several years in, it's still working a treat! "Dropbox + simple script" seems to be a great mechanism for many apps if you don't need easy public access.

Interesting, although after reading the first bullet point ("Minimalist design (simple is beautiful)") looking at the screenshots was ... surprising ;)

Also check out https://bookie.io/

Thanks. I like the fact that it is self-hosted (unlike pinboard)

Next question is one of federation (delicious, after all, works as a search engine because of multiple user input). It would be really cool to see a world where all these roll-your-own things are starting to connect.


That's good for following, but not searching the world.

By contrast, somehow, Mediagoblin intends to federate in a searchable manner, as I understand. But, I don't know how that's going to work.

If you are interested in drawing attention, I'd suggest maybe hosting a cheap demo version on like a $5 DO instance for people to play with. ;)

After leaving delicious, I've been using google bookmarks(https://www.google.co.in/bookmarks/). Isn't anyone else using it ? If anyone has tried using google bookmarks, how would you compare it with pinboard.in ?

The project has not been updated for quite some time by the original author, but luckily there is a quite active fork on Github (including a public demo): https://github.com/shaarli/Shaarli

I used this for a long time and really liked it. It's very easy to set up and works great.

sorry but Shaarly is the best choice, free, secure, légé, taxonomy, rss feeds and private bookmarks by tag. And a simple shared hosting is enough.

I believe these are called "bookmarks."
