Firefox 61 is broken.

August 22, 2018 — tux.

According to various reports, Firefox 61 has broken ymarks in some way. I'm currently investigating the issue and I hope that I can push an update this week. Sorry for the inconvenience!

edit: I reproduced and hopefully fixed the problem with ymarks 1.1.0 beta 5. It should be available now.

Help request: I could need GFX skills.

July 02, 2018 — tux.

As some of you might have noticed, I suck at graphics - starting with the ymarks "logo" (which are one B├ęzier curve and a brave swipe with the mouse), not ending with the missing advertising image on the Chrome extension site. If you feel like helping me out, please contact me!

Experimental Chrome build is up.

As you are reading this, ymarks should be available in the Chrome Web Store. Please help me debug it by using it or something.

ymarks's first PR fixed all of the things

June 15, 2018 — tux.

After me having struggled with the incompatibility between Chrome and Firefox for too long, the awesome Michael Yelsukov pretty much fixed the browser extensions on his own. I am deeply impressed.

Firefox users should have the update to beta 4 soon, the Chrome download will be updated in a few minutes. Cheers!

Finally on AMO.

April 09, 2018 — tux.

I have just published the first public beta version of the ymarks Firefox extension to Mozilla's official add-on repository. While the Chrome version needs some more work, I am confident that the WebExtension client is rapidly approaching a state of stable-enough-ness. I will update all website links while you read this.

Serious development work...

April 06, 2018 — tux.

I was notified by @pyrox82 that ymarks behaves not as well as expected outside the Firefox world. I am chasing some issues, expect updates.

Media coverage!

April 01, 2018 — tux.

Today I have learned that Xmarks - the service which inspired me to start ymarks - is about to be shut down soon. Thankfully, Martin Brinkmann provided an article about potential alternatives, listing ymarks as one of them.

I feel honored, to say the least.

Working on a better integration.

March 26, 2018 — tux.

Note: this article is already outdated. I keep it here for future reference though.

After evaluating my remaining options as the (otherwise lovely) qutebrowser acted weird on one of my machines and its extension support is less than remarkable yet (and will be for the foreseeable future), I shifted my development attention to my own web browser which will probably include ymarks support. As this will be a lengthy process, please excuse the lack of updates on this site.

While I'm on it, you are still invited to try ymarks - if you like it, please get in touch with me. I'm always happy about feedback!

Fixed Windows package

January 08, 2018 — tux.

I was notified by @abinarybbs that the Windows build requires a non-standard SQLite DLL. I uploaded a new precompiled download that includes this DLL file.

For those who prefer compiling their own ymarks build: The winsqlite.dll file usually comes directly from the official SQLite source code.

ymarks for Chrome and Vivaldi is available now.

November 17, 2017 — tux.

I tried to build a port of ymarks to Chrome and Chrome-based browsers. According to my perception, the version I just uploaded should be able to communicate with the main process. Note that some of the more fine-grained specialties are probably not covered yet, so you might run into weirdnesses.

I also had the pleasure to test the server component on FreeBSD and it seems to work. :-) I updated the README accordingly.

ymarks for Firefox is feature-complete.

November 06, 2017 — tux.

I sent out a first release candidate for the Firefox version of ymarks to my beta testers, coupled with what I consider a working Windows build of the server component.

If everything works as intended, a first public release could be coming in 2017. It will be awesome.
