It is Linkdump time again. I fixed some things during the week, so my Shaarli instance can use the API now. I do a lot of research and reading on mobile devices (tablet and phone). Now I can share important articles through Stakali, add short notes and do followups on my other devices (tablet, computer). To automate the linkdump posts, I created a short Python script to collect my saved bookmarks (marked with the tag linkdump) and create an asccidoc document for my hugo instance. So I can do a quick review and post it.

Shaarli creates a daily overview and a tag cloud of saved bookmarks.
