  • Suggest me your best "glorified bookmarks page" like Heimdall or Homepage

    But the win combo to me is Flame forwarding to linkding's tags .. a bookmark linking to linkding's tag .. MAGIC .. Custom search providers with Searxng .. configure like this "" .. OBVIOUSLY change the example IP with your searxng IP ..

  • Ask HN: Do you use a bookmark manager?
    7 projects | | 25 Dec 2022
    I've been on a quest to tame the bookmark monster. I have bookmarks (collectively over 10k probably) all spread around in different devices, different browsers on different computers, and event in text messages I sent to myself, via whatsapp/sms, over a period spanning 6-7 years.

    While I'm not close done curating (the dead/expired/out-of-date links)... I needed to collect it all in one central place, and [linkding]( is fitting the bill quite nicely. I'm using the tags and description field to annonate and sort the mess of bookmarks. It has a simple to use rest API, uses SQLite, and you can import/export bookmarks using the Netscape bookmarks html format. Best of all, it's OSS you can self-host on a RaspberryPi or even for free on say

    While Briefkasten looks good, consider evaluating Linkding as well before investing your time and efforts. You can check Pinboard as well if you're ok paying (a little).
  • My slow progression towards and away from NextCloud

    NC Bookmarks was really great once I set up the auto-screenshot for each bookmark. But ultimately, the sluggish UI and folder navigation was a bit annoying. I gave linkding a try and really liked the snappy, responsive UI and the very quick/efficient tag based filtering. I do miss the gallery view with website screenshots that NC Bookmarks offer, but having a lean and snappy UI is more important I think. Generally it's a bit of an afterthough, though, I don't use my long term bookmark storage frequently anyway.
  • Pinboard vs. Raindrop: Two bookmark apps enter
    7 projects | | 10 Nov 2022
    I've been a pinboard user for ~6 years and I won't be renewing my subscription.

    After a few years of using it I signed up for an archival account. My credit card was charged, but I wasn't able to archive any page; the option to do so was never there. I emailed support (I guess it goes directly to Maciej) and NEVER got an answer, despite being a paid customer and following up several times. I ended up having to do a charge-back on my credit card. Very unprofessional.

    On the flip side, that made me look into self hosting and now I happily run a linkding [1] instance on my NAS. I never really cared about the social aspect of it.
