Subject: Tip: How to quickly transform Firefox/Iceweasel/Icecat bookmarks to Org file
Date: Mon, 21 Dec 2020 10:44:31 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <X+BSX4Rnsy8INKMv@protected.rcdrun.com> (raw)

As Firefox and derived browsers store bookmarks in the file
`places.sqlite' one may access the file with `sqlite3' utility and use
SQL query to get a list of all bookmarks and transform them into Org

1. Locate your `places.sqlite' file on your system, it must be in your
   Firefox profile. As I am using Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre it is in

2. Use the `sqlite3' command and the script below to export to

$ sqlite3 ~/.hyperbola/iceweasel-uxp/co46wr2o.default/places.sqlite "SELECT moz_places.title, moz_places.url FROM moz_places, moz_bookmarks WHERE moz_places.id = moz_bookmarks.fk AND moz_places.title IS NOT NULL;" | gawk -F \| '{ print "* " $1 "\n\n[["$2"]["$1"]]\n"}' > captured.org

That is very handy as it produces a file like below:
