bye bye delicious
mercoledì, 02 febbraio 2011

And so the time came for another change.

I liked delicious, I used it, I told friends about it and finally I'm leaving it after many reported Yahoo! is shutting it down.

I looked for alternatives and I choose pinboard. It's easy to export bookmarks from delicious and into pinboard, it offers delicious v1 APIs, some added features and obviously also misses something. Fortunately nothing I care about, though.

Part of my switch over was updating this site's recent bookmarks and tag cloud from delicious' javascripts (v2 API) to pinboard's v1. I took the chance to learn something new and wrote everything in php, hopefully also making the whole process faster, since now it's the hosting Internet band being used, not the client's one.
