I hated firefox bookmarks manager so I tried to implement a simple solution where I saved all my bookmarks in google sheets and turn that into api and served it using flask. https://github.com/mraza007/useful-bookmarks/tree/flask.

Its my first time posting on this site.

There’s a bug which need to be fixed but you can checkout the initial version https://kind-babbage-78b799.netlify.com/

    When I open the website I see a form with an autocomplete reading “<built-in method title of str object at 0x7f550d3cd530> Date Added:()”, that doesn’t seem to allow me to do anything interesting. Maybe a javascript bug?

      <built-in method title of str object at 0x7f550d3cd530>

      Looks like somebody’s done repr("somestring".title) in Python.

        I remember when you could simply export your bookmarks as a HTML file and put it on a webserver. Simpler times…

          fyi You CAN export your bookmarks into an HTML file today(at least on Firefox).

            I’m pretty sure you can do that but it’s weird html

            Backing them up is also easy when they’re HTML files. Been doing that for a while. :)

              Also why not write css for the exported HTML file to make it look fancy/better than the default list.

                Cool project :-) Personally I went plain text-files - just putting my bookmarks in an org-mode file alongside tags and description pulled from the HTML meta. Lately I was thinking writing some simple CLI based crawler that would archive those websites as many of the older collected links are becoming dead.

                  Thanks Your idea seems really cool

                      Nice. I use my personal website to store things for later https://www.jvt.me/kind/bookmarks/ that are then taggable, searchable, and discoverable for other folks

                        Nice

                        This post made me want to find my old bookmarks, so I dug up a Windows 2000 machine and started it. It had a lot of old files, but sadly no bookmarks. It seems I transferred them on to another machine a few years back, and that one accidentally got dd‘ed. It’s a pity, because if I still had that, I could have had all of my internet history (~2002-now) with me.
