NANY 2018 Release (preliminary alpha-or-so): ymarks

(1/14) > >>

ymarks :: self-hosted cross-browser bookmarks sync

You know Xmarks, the almost legendary bookmark sync service that has been allowing you to synchronize your bookmarks across multiple browsers since 2006? I have been working on a self-hosted open-source alternative for a couple of months (skipping a couple of weeks because this is far from being my only ongoing development project) and I'm confident to be able to release a first version just in time for NANY 2018.

I implement the client part as a WebExtension, it will probably work with Firefox, Chrome, Vivaldi, Opera, and Edge without any modifications when I'm done. I'll also try to provide an Android app because mobile browsers suck when it comes to extensibility, but that does not have a high priority as of now.

DONEs and TODOs:

Bookmarks server:

* Compiles on Windows done
* Compiles on *ix done
* Can retrieve and store bookmarks done
* Can backup bookmarks done
* Can send bookmarks to the client done
Browser extension:

* Can upload bookmarks done
* Can download bookmarks done
* Can download previous bookmarks done
* Automated downloads and uploads on start/changes done
* Ensure cross-browser compatibility Write separate extensions because Mozilla is a cunt done
Android app:

* Settings (UI & storage TODO
* Bookmarks list TODO
* Add/Edit/Delete bookmarks TODO
