How to use liferea with pocket
Github ticket #199 is a feature request for Pocket integration for Liferea. Pocket is now more widely used due to the tight integration in Firefox. So as a Firefox user you might have an account that you might want to reuse for Liferea. Given the way how the current bookmarking function works, Liferea only supports websites with the capability to pass bookmark infos (link, title) via HTTP URI. This is not the case for Pocket which is why it cannot be easily implemented.
How to WorkaroundSome days ago user mathew42 suggested a solution for this in the ticket. I repost his suggestion here for everyone who might want to use it. I was able to implement this feature by:
- Downloading the pocket-cli python script
- Run the script to configure oauth
- In preferences changing the External Browser Settings to Manual
- Set the "Manual:" text field to
/python-cli.py -a %s
