Pintools uses lionheart/pinboard.py to connect with Pinboard. Authentication is completed using your Pinboard API token, which can be found in settings->password on Pinboard.
Pintools will by default look for your Pinboard API token in
$PINBOARD_API_TOKEN. Alternatively it
can be specified using the
--pinboard_token argument if you do not want to use
the environment variable.
Sync Github Stars
Pintools can be used to copy Github stars to your Pinboard account. Starred gists are not currently copied.
pintools github [-h] [--token TOKEN]
Pintools uses PyGithub to connect to
Github. In order to authenticate with Github, you will need to create a Personal
Access Token in your Github account, with the
Pintools will look for this Personal Access Token in
Alternatively, this token can be specified using the
Sync Reddit Saved Links
Pintools can be used to copy Reddit saved items to your Pinboard account. Note that new saved items can be saved via IFTTT, but if you want to back up the entirety of your saved links, you need to use a script like this because IFTTT will only work on new saved items.
Saved comments are not currently copied.
pintools reddit [-h] [--secret SECRET] [--client_id CLIENT_ID] USERNAME PASSWORD
Pintools uses PRAW to connect with Reddit. You will need to crate a developer application (personal use script) on Reddit in order to authenticate. Please follow the PRAW insructions on ‘Password Flow’ here.
Once you have created a personal use script application on Reddit, save the
Client-ID and Client-Secret. By default, pintools will look for these in
$REDDIT_CLIENT_SECRET. Alternatively, these can be
specified using the
--secret arguments. Username and
password for Reddit must also be provided on the command line.
Organize Pinboard links by originating site
Pintools can be used to tag each bookmark against the originating site,
for easier organization. For example, any bookmark from
be tagged with
pintools tags [-h] [--config CONFIG_FILE]
This can be optionally customized using a config file. The config file can group several domains under one URL.
The config file uses YAML syntax like so:
domains: # list title must always be 'domains' utoronto: # Each key is the final tag you want on your bookmarks - utoronto # each item in the list is the base URL you want the tag associated with - cs.toronto # don't include .com or www. twitter: - t - twitter
There is an example config file here
Pintools can fix bookmark titles for you, which sometimes get messed up when saving bookmarks automatically with IFTTT.
pintools titles [-h] [--tag TAG]
In order to prevent accidentally nuking all your bookmark titles, this feature operates on a single tag. For each bookmark with the tag specified, pintools will grab the title of the URL, and update the bookmark’s title in Pinboard.
