Hi,

Is there anyone using ORG for keeping web bookmarks? Basically I'm
looking at Delicious-like functionality, where I just put tags to web
addresses and I can search the bookmarks either for their name or with
tags. 

I have looked at webjump and w3m but they seem to keep old-fashioned
ways for organizing the bookmark file. I just thought that perhaps this
could be done with Org. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Look at quickurl. I have been using it for quite sometime now. This is
not Org related.

You can also search for org-protocol + org-capture + firefox and you
will be able to see some solutions that fit your needs.

That is the idea I organize my bookmarks.

You might be interested in the followings:
  - http://orgmode.org/manual/Capture.html#Capture
  - http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-protocol.html

In short, I make a bookmark in Firefox via org-protocol.

Hope this help.

For a while, I was keeping an Org file with bookmarks organized
del.icio.us-style, eg:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* [[http://url1.com][Title1]] :tag1:tag2:tag3:

Notes...

* [[http://url2.com][Title2]] :tag1:tag2:tag3:

Notes...

* ...
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

But then I started incorporating the links into the body of my notes (I
keep a "notebook" directory with an Org file for each broad subject and
Org headings/subheadings for more granular organization).  I found the
web links much more useful in the context of my notes, so I stopped
using the del.icio.us-style format.

Regards,
Jason

I guess I was looking for something a bit more automatic... I would like
to have at least two of the delicious functionalities:

1) to get automatic category suggestion (or at least to get them
completed when pressing TAB or similar), and

2) a nice way to look for all the bookmarks that are in category X

I was looking to have it done perhaps with BBDB, instead, but I wouldn't
like to get a mess when writing mails. 

I'm open to suggestions,

Thanks, but I'm specifically looking for a way to organize bookmarks
with tags for easy storing/searching, and as far as I can tell, quickurl
does not provide anything in that respect?

Cheers,

Hi Angel,

maybe you can have a look at GNU recutils:

  http://www.gnu.org/s/recutils/

I'd be curious to know if recutils has been used to store
and manage bookmarks, but I think it's a natural fit.

We had some discussion with the author, Jose E. Marchesi, 
who is an this list -- and recutils/org integration is not
impossible either.

HTH,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm very busy right now, so I didn't look at
this, but I will certainly come back to it, and report back. (There was
also a Emacs Database, EDB, which I never used, but which perhaps could
also be used, but I'm not sure if that is still maintained...)

Cheers,

Great -- let us know about your progress, it can boost any org/recutils
gateway.

Im also interested in this for my webkit embedded in emacs project.

Currently I just use urls in org files and open them with c-o. It works
well for links you seldomly use because its easier to find them by
context than by name.
