A "save to favorites" or "bookmark" feature, separate from the list that's generated by your upvote history, and longer term, the ability to organize them. Sometimes it's hard to go back and find things, and it would be cool to have the ability to organize research, etc. :)



This was a big problem for me on various forums. I don't want one aggregator to control this on all sites I use either. I ended up keeping per-site folders with text copies of the good stuff with links back to originals. Each site letting one organize the material is a step up. API's that make that easy to automate might be next step up from there. Then, what goes into each site can be locally generated, customized for each per their style, and uploaded.

Definitely! This was partly the motivation for starting the site. Your bookmarks are yours, and it's important to us to avoid siloing data. The API might end up similar to https://github.com/HackerNews/API.

Ok, there is an initial JSON API.

For any user or item, you can add .json to the endpoint. For example:

https://www.laarc.io/item?id=230

Becomes

https://www.laarc.io/item.json?id=230

And for users: https://www.laarc.io/user.json?id=nickpsecurity

I’ll add endpoints for tags like /l/news soon (and RSS feeds).

Really cool. I like the simplicity of just adding .json. If I'm looking at that right, it has all the stories I submitted in JSON so I could just grab, store, or view them with an app?

Correct. If you notice any problems, let me know.

Good work and thanks! :)

Ok, you can save stories and comments to favorites.

https://www.laarc.io/favorites?id=shawn

To save something to your favorites, click on an item's timestamp, then click "favorite" (at the top, next to the "parent" link).

If you visit someone's profile page, you can visit links to their submissions/comments/favorites.

Awesome! This takes care of one of the prerequisites for https://www.laarc.io/item?id=230#313 :)
