If this works there should be about 6 thumbnails on this page, showing links bookmarked using Delicious, and tagged with «art».

Download delicious_screenshots.zip here, version 0.7 of my very first wordpress plugin.

Activate plugin. And add your del.icio.us username to the options page. (under settings in the WordPress toolbar)

14.02.2017: Changed from rss to json and cleaned the code up a bit. Also removed Snapcasa from options.

What’s next:

  1. The first version of this plugin used Snapcasa for creating thumbnails, but I switched to thumbalizr.com to get a higher success rate.
  2. The count param doesn’t seem to do anything when calling the del.icio.us api, it always returns 10 results, so I need to handle that in the code instead. I’ve notified them of the bug.
  3. Testing other screenshotting services or making my own.
  4. Choosing an image from the page metadata when available.

Userscripts.org: Amazon Sambok and BIBSYS ISBN Search

Hey, my first Greasemonkey userscript!

Userscripts.org: Amazon Sambok ISBN Search:

This is just a fast remake of the Hight Library Linky script. Its my first script, just wanted to check out how hard it would be to rework. Luckily for me it was super easy. It inserts links to two norwegian bibliographical databases.

Bibsys, containing material from universities and colleges.
And Sambok, containing material from most Public Libraries in Norway.

Pretty useful, at least in theory, since ISBN search is quite limiting. But it will have to do for now.
