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.
