How do I improve the Pinboard.in GUI in windows please? Thanks.


You can add a UserScript to your browser, for example.

I know I can't use PinPlus


Sure you can. It’s an Electron app, so you can build it in Windows. But like I mention:



Currently, only macOS is supported. I do not intend to officially support other platforms in the near future since I cannot consistently and reliably test on them, but am willing to add support if someone wants to collaborate in doing the legwork.

Thanks but I don't even know where to start.

I am not a programmer. :(


Unfortunately, I can’t help you, as I’m not a Windows user.


If you’re not even an Alfred user, then you’re definitely in the wrong place.

Added support for Vivaldi and Brave. I’ve skipped Opera since while we can get the URL and Title from a tab, we can’t execute JavaScript (to run the bookmarklet to add bookmarks). The capability seems to be there (being Chromium-based) but not a way of turning it on.

To update, download the latest version (same URL) or wait a few days and it’ll prompt you to on next usage, since it uses OneUpdater.

Is there any way to disable the tag cloud in the window that appears after `pa`?


Tag autocomplete, not tag cloud. No way to disable it, no; that window is from the Pinboard site.

for some reason it doesn't show me any of my pins. It says "fetching bookmarks" for a second and then nothing happens. I was using Rusty Pin before, but when I updated to Alfred 4, it stopped working. After a quick search, I found your (updated) workflow but it doesn't work either. I can add bookmarks with both workflows but for some reason I can't get to see or search them in Alfred. Any clues about that?

Ok, I did this,  but no success.


Here's the debugger output:

I'm sorry, can you please tell me how to set the token? Where do I put it in?

I've done the :pinplusresetapitoken command but it's just showing me the link you've posted.

Adding bookmarks still works btw.


Thanks for your help!
