Pinboard-to-Buku importation utility

Project description

pinku is a Pinboard-to-Buku importation utility.

pinku is not (at least at this time) a syncing utility and works in only one direction: to import bookmarks from Pinboard into Buku. If the URL already exists in Buku, the entry is skipped over.


pip install pinku


Ensure that you have set the PINBOARD_API_KEY environment variable to your Pinboard API token. You can find your API token here.

pinku takes command-line arguments that serve as filters for searching through Pinboard bookmarks. pinku will then add the results to your Buku database.

Pinku supports all of the filter arguments for the Pinboard API /all endpoint. Please visit Pinboard’s API documentation to read the details.

Please note that Pinboard limits API calls to the /all endpoint to once every five minutes
