#18 toread RSS 19 days ago

Comment by ~mlb on ~mlb/linkhut

Hi there,

"toread" bookmarks are considered private, so one must be authenticated to see them even in the RSS feed.

There's two ways of doing so, the first is to provide an access token in the header, e.g:

curl \
-H Authorization:'Bearer <your-access-token>' \ 
https://ln.ht/_/feed/~2097/toread 

Alternatively (which is probably easier to integrate with your favorite feed reader), you can also include the token as the query parameter auth_token, e.g:

curl 'https://ln.ht/_/feed/~2097/toread?auth_token=<your-access-token>'

Agreed, I have asked ~pyrho, the maintainer of the extension, to provide installation instructions that go over this.

Sounds like a permissions issue... Could you check that you have 'Access your data for *://api.ln.ht' enabled under the Permissions tab of the extension? ('about:addons' -> 'Linkhut Companion' -> 'Permissions').

Thanks for bringing up this issue.

Regarding Firefox addon

If we're talking about the Linkhut Companion, it "works quite well on my machine" ©. One thing to note however is that you must configure it by providing a Personal Access Token.

  • You can generate an access token for your account going to https://ln.ht/_/oauth and clicking on "Generate new token"
  • To configure the add-on to use the token, go to 'about:addons' -> 'Linkhut Companion' -> 'Preferences' -> and copy the Personal Access Token into the relevant field (also verify that the other fields have the right values, notably: 'https://ln.ht/' for Web URL and 'https://api.ln.ht/' for API URL)

Alternatively, under Misc in the settings page, there's a bookmarklet you can use that pre-populates the submission form with the title of the current page. This might still be a higher friction path than Pocket due to redirecting to the link submission form but it works relatively well in most cases.

Regarding making titles not mandatory

I do worry that making titles optional might lead to having a lot of bookmarks being just plain URLs (tags and descriptions being optional already), and then linkhut might not be as useful as a discovery and information retrieval platform. I feel that making data entry seamless is the responsibility of the tooling, such as the aforementioned firefox add-on and bookmarklet, and forcing clients to specify a title will ensure said tooling to take this into consideration as part of their CX. But I'm open to listen counter arguments.

#16 Tags sorting? 5 months ago

Comment by ~mlb on ~mlb/linkhut

I just added some rudimentary controls for the tag cloud. Once I finish my work on the user settings some of those settings could be made sticky for a given account (e.g.: always sort tags alphabetically when looking at your own bookmarks).

Let me know what you think.
