Keep Local Copies of Pinboard Links


I came across Brett Terpstra’s cool bit of code to keep local copies of your Pinboard links. Like Brett, I use Delibar to send links to Pinboard, and via his script, they automatically get saved to my machine. And also like, Brett, I use the Tags app to tag all sorts of things on my Mac.

When I first ran the script, all of my Pinboard tags then appeared in my Tags browser. And every time I add a new one, it gets saved locally. No chron job required if you are a smart man and use Hazel. Which I do…like Brett.

Yes, I like Brett Terpstra. You should read (and buy) his stuff if you’re a Mac user. And then you’ll like him too.
