# Based on delicious2yojimbo.pl by Marcus Kazmierczak, marcus@mkaz.com
# and Manton Reece, http://www.manton.org/, which, when I downloaded it on
# 2009-05-16, was not working for me.
# Rather than troubleshoot, I rewrote it in Ruby.
# TODO: support multi-word tags, report actual success of import
# ============================================================================
# A simple script to import del.icio.us bookmarks, with tags, into Yojimbo
# No syncing, or any fancy stuff. Intended as a one time deal.
# Step 1:
# Got to: https://api.del.icio.us/v1/posts/all?user=YOURNAME
# Replacing YOURNAME with your del.icio.us username
# Login using your del.icio.us account
# save file to your desktop called: all.xml
# Step 2:
# If you haven't done so already, save the delicious2yojimbo
# script to your desktop (or same location as all.xml)
# Step 3:
# From the terminal/x11/command-line run the script
# ruby delicious2yojimbo.rb
filename = "all.xml"
lines = File.new(filename)
i = 0
strip = "'" # characters that interfere with the command line
lines.each do |line|
if line =~ /.*href="(.*?)".*description="(.*?)".*tag="(.*?)".*/i
href, desc, tag = $1.tr(strip,""), $2.tr(strip,""), $3.tr(strip,"")
puts "#{href} :: #{desc} :: #{tag} \n "
as_cmd = "tell application \"Yojimbo\"\n"
as_cmd += "set the_item to make new bookmark item with properties {name:\"#{desc}\", location:\"#{href}\", comments:\"\"} \n"
as_cmd += "add tags (words of \"#{tag}\") to the_item \n"
as_cmd += "end tell"
result = `osascript -e '#{as_cmd}'`
i += 1
end
end
puts "Imported #{i} Bookmarks \n"
