  1. Julian says:

    A lazyweb request. Somebody I know asked for a tool to *export* their IE (firefox etc) bookmarks to del.icio.us. They want a quick way to populate their del.ico.us page with links they’ve already saved.

    I also wonder if a CSV import might be useful as an intermediate format for moving bookmarks from other systems to del.icio.us. .

    • AYorba says:

      Scripted Re-Mark is a service for batch editing your delicious bookmarks. You can apply search-and-replace rules (regular expressions) to your bookmarks titles, URLs, notes and tags.

  2. Julian says:

    Note also that several of the services have gone off line. Nutricious and gregarious for two.

  3. Thomas says:

    Sadly, gre.gario.us as described in this blog post has gone down due to overpopularity. :-()

  4. Ozh says:

    Damn … the number of hits this piece of news is bringing to me (taga.licio.us) is quite amazing …

  5. Boon says:

    Hi, I’ve been searching the web for a step-by-step, idiot proof way to export my Firefox bookmarks to delicious. I came across Elliot Smith’s script but was not able to implement it successfully in Windows XP. His script also presumed a familiarity with Python, a familiarity I do not possess. The BunnyHug updater also did not work for me because I could not install .1.1 .Net framework. Could you or anyone pls provide some help? It would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  6. itebob says:

    I seem to recall, that I found an Tool for add/ host of images for del.icio.us-Bookmarks. Yet I can’t find this tool.
    Can anybody help?

    I really wish there was a way delicous could use folders so I could categorize my bookmarks since my list is too long for the screen.

  11. Beth says:

    I’m seeking a tool that will export all the bookmarks (and info – extended description, tags, users, #users bookmarked, date) from a particular tag used by all delicious users. Ideally, it would be exported into an excel spreadsheet. Any suggestions?

  12. John says:

    I’ve reworked an existing script for tagging Google Blogger posts so that it will output one set of tags that are valid in both del.icio.us and technorati.

    Here’s the script.
    Here’s my Freshblog post about it.

    It is possible to export del.icio.us bookmarks and to import them to Blauer Bote Bookmarks, if someone likes to do this.

    Just click ‘Add a bookmark’, ‘Import bookmarks from del.icio.us’ in

    You may also import bookmarks from Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Netscape.

  15. John Abbe says:

    Vertabrett – the del.icio.us crew are getting ready to roll out a recommendation system now, they’re just waiting for more hardware.

  16. John says:

    Is there a way to put a clickable (dropdown?) list of my del.icio.us tags in the sidebar of my site without hand-coding? I’m using del.icio.us for categories & I’d like to be able to send people straight to my tag pages instead of to my del.icio.us page…

  17. Marjolein Hoekstra says:

    I’d like to see an extension to the existing feature set of del.icio.us that allows me to grab my own (partial) snapshot of a specific part of a web page to store with the bookmark.
    As far as I can tell there is no online bookmarking service yet that allows me to add custom visuals to a bookmark. I have seen wists, but it’s not customizeable.

    SnagIt can take the snapshots that I want (sometimes a website logo, sometimes some other part that sparks my interest), it’s just that there’s no way I can properly store that image in my list.

    Of course RSS export capabilities are essential, so desktop products are not an alternative.

    I’d be delighted to learn if anyone has already designed this.

  18. Peter Cooper says:

    John, yes, there is. Go to Feed Digest.com, paste in your del.icio.us *RSS* feed URL, then use the JavaScript or PHP include code to add your del.icio.us links to your site.

  19. Jens says:

    You can also use Homepage RSS (Example) to include your del.icio.us stuff. Insert your del.icio.us feed and you will get an iframe (html) or php include code to include your links.

  20. Alex says:

    I’ve got a related urls bookmarklet on my page that will show you the urls del.icio.us believes are related to your current page.

    2 questions

    1- is there a bulk tagging function/api out there for delicious? i have 1200 unfiled bookmarks

    2- what software is used to post on this site?


  26. John says:

    I’m reworking for Google Blogger again… This time making 2 new versions of an existing bookmarklet. Both add functions to blogger’s blogthis! bookmarklet. The first automatically adds tags that link to an individual’s del.icio.us acct. The second adds tags that link to the del.icio.us page for that tag. See Freshblog for the scoop.

  27. Anonymous says:

    I just released Revealicious, which is a set of 3 interactive visualisation to browse your del.icio.us tags and search for posts matching the selected tags.

    Revealicious is available at http://www.ivy.fr/404.html

  28. Rob says:

    There is a del.icio.us firefox toolbar floating around for sometime now: delic123
    I am surprised it didn’t make it to here.

  29. Crispy says:

    I’ve created a bookmarklet generator which allows you to tag books that you browse in Amazon.com.
    It standardizes the URL so that del.icio.us recognizes two entries for the same book as being the same.
    It trims the title, so you just get the name of the book.
    It takes any selected text on the page, and plops it into the extended description.
    It preselects the tag “books” for you.
    It returns you to the browsed book after tagging it in del.icio.us
    It usually works with Barnes & Noble too, but doesn’t like URL’s with UPC codes instead of ISBN (more work to do!)

    Currently it supports Internet Explorer, but a Firefox version is coming soon.

  30. Kaspar Schiess says:

    The delicious categorizer at

    (already in this list) has just been augmented with a Firefox export of the categorized links. This makes load time for browsing your bookmarks really short.

    Maybe the description should be updated ?

    I would like to suggest my Greasemonkey user script for del.icio.us:

    Familiar Taste

    When you visit a site that you already have bookmarked, it pops up a small reminder of when you posted it, and with what tags.

  32. Mark says:

    “Post comments to suggest any tools I missed here”…OK, here goes.

    As part of a tutorial on how to build side-bars for IE without having to learn C++ (instead using XForms), I produced a panel that allows you to add the current browser page to del.icio.us–with tags–in one click.

    The XForm side-bar picks up the title of the page you are looking at in the main frame, as well as any keywords in the META tags, which will then be used as tag suggestions. The description of the link is automatically set to the description from the META tags (if there is one), or alternatively you can hightlight some text in the main document and that will be used instead.

    There’s also an input box that uses Google Suggest if you want to try and standardise on tags.

    One experimental feature is that tags entered into one of the input boxes are encrypted before being sent to del.icio.us.

    If you’re not familiar with XForms it’s the next generation of forms for the web–an extension to HTML. If you want to, you should find it pretty easy to add new features to the side-bar, or alternatively make some suggestions and someone else might do it! Certainly it would be very easy to change things like the suggestion mark-up, to use a source of words other than Google Suggest, if you have a company-wide tag-list, for example.

    Screenshots and installation instructions are here, and a discussion of the Google Suggest feature is here.

    I want to narrow down a search within del.icio.us.
    For example, I enter the tag “technology.” It comes up with entries plus a list of related tags. I want to click on the related tag “internet” for a search of “technology” and “internet.”
    This is possible with your own bookmarks but not with a global search.
    Why is that?

    I expect this might be a good spot to announce another tool for integrating Del.icio.us with Blogger, for the purpose of tagging and categorizing posts. I made a Greasemonkey script yesterday to reduce that process to some typing tag names on the post page and a click or two after publishing.

    Anyone know of a good and currently functioning tool that simplifies posting for people with more than one del.icio.us account?

    I have my own personal account, but for a collaborative project I have a separate account that I share with a group of contributors.

    Right now, when I hit the del.icio.us bookmarklet, I find I’m often in the wrong account, and I need to log out and log back in manually via the del.icio.us site. It’s a pain.

    What I’d love would be a bookmarklet that would first ask me to pick an account from a menu, and then let me post the bookmark like normal.

    It’d be lovely if you’d add my little project to the big list. It’s called skin.del.icio.us, and it provides an alternate color scheme & graphic for the del.icio.us interface in Firefox. Your extensive list, being as it is, del.icio.us central, would be that much more complete, and people’s del.icio.us experience, that much more cusomized…

    and you can fill the email body with the description.
    and to see the result you can see it with bookmarkMail here,
    and if you want to set up for your own server click here

    ive seen del.icio.us and ive used it.
    i need to ask u users something.

    would you guys prefer to save your bookmarks on del.icio.us or rather use a service that lets u tag and save bookmarks in your browsers ‘bookmark’ window as well as on a del.icio.us like website for later usage.

    ive always found it more convenient to access my bookmarks in my browser window.
    why even visit del.icio.us and waste time.

    let me know ur thoughts.

    Sohail, I don’t use the same browser all the time. I switch regularly; home, work, IE, Firefox, Netscape 4 (there’s a Firefox bug under X11 that happens to affect me that it doesn’t have). And using del.icio.us instead of browser bookmarks means I don’t have to make sure to copy over my bookmarks every time. Plus, I’ve found that tagging makes it much easier to find a given link again, once it’s stored; browser bookmarks don’t have that option.

    I’ve recently developed SyncBookmarks. It is a PHP script that allows the synchronization of bookmarks between two different bookmarking services, provided that they both support the del.icio.us API (i.e. between del.icio.us and any website based on Scuttle). Also, the script can be used to make backups of any of the configured services.

  131. Anonymous says:

    Hi, a few days ago I wrote an Opera button/bookmarklet to post links to del.icio.us – there are already some, but I didn’t find one which met my requirements.

    My button is simple an does the following:
    * opens a small pop-up window
    * fills out the URL field with the current URL
    * fills out the description field with the current page title
    * fills out the notes field with some text that maybe currently selected in the document you want to post
    * after posting the pop-up closes itself.

    It’s kind of the same behaviour as the Firefox extension provided by del.icio.us.

    You could find it at http://goetz.buerkle.org/delicious-opera

    I wrote desktop software (Simple del.icio.us Manager = SDM) in java to easly managing del.icio.us bookmarks. Please check this web page:

    With this software one can type for example: ‘+astronomy -physics’ then it will be found all bookmarks which have ‘astronomy’ tag BUT which don’t have ‘physics’ tag. With ‘+’ and ‘-‘ one can search for exact tag names.

    Other example: one can type ‘astronomy !physics’ and it will be found all bookmarks which have in url, description, extended or in tags such word like ‘astronomy’ BUT which don’t have such word like ‘physics’.

    Check this program if you like.

    Disclaimer: i wrote it myself. There might be another tool to quickly rename and such but frankly there are too much projects.. :)

    anyway, i don’t see any CLI utils. it integrates with the terminal browsers elinks and lynx too but is not as fancy as the web-based post.

  160. muzik dinle says:

    I’d like to see an extension to the existing feature set of del.icio.us that allows me to grab my own (partial) snapshot of a specific part of a web page to store with the bookmark.
    As far as I can tell there is no online bookmarking service yet that allows me to add custom visuals to a bookmark. I have seen wists, but it’s not customizeable.

    SnagIt can take the snapshots that I want (sometimes a website logo, sometimes some other part that sparks my interest), it’s just that there’s no way I can properly store that image in my list.

    Of course RSS export capabilities are essential, so desktop products are not an alternative.
