Web Bookmarks support for Brave

Recommended Posts

I use Brave rather than Safari or Chrome, but the "Web Bookmarks" feature doesn't find my Brave Bookmarks.

Configuration:

macOS Sierra 10.12.6

Brave Version 0.59.35 Chromium: 72.0.3626.81 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Web Bookmarks Feature is Configured as follows:

Sources: "Google Chrome Bookmarks"

Show Bookmarks "via keyword" = "bm"

Open Bookmarks "in macOS default browser"

 

If I add a bookmark to brave and search for it using "bm" it is not found.

If I add the same bookmark to Chrome, it works fine.

@kms There's a workflow here for Brave bookmarks, which you may want tot try:

At this time, we are not planning on adding Brave browser support, as it isn't widely used, but we always keep an eye on stats and demand. :)

 

Cheers,
Vero

This seems to just search browser history, not bookmarks... or am I missing something?

Launchbar supports importing a bookmarks.html file, which Brave can of course export (along with any other browser). Perhaps at the very least Alfred could offer this, that way users could use any browser they want and see its bookmarks in Alfred?

Odd, this script works on my home computer, but not my work computer. My Brave bookmarks don't appear after typing "bm" and then something else. I'm rebuilding my metadata... Any other ideas if that doesn't work?

Try with different keywords or at least more sophisticated ones. To do this you need to open Alfred Preferences > Workflows > Search for "Search Brave History" and open Script Filter. There you can change "bm" to something more sophisticated and retry.

can you open the workflow in Alfred Pref, click on the Small Bug top right and then try to execute the workflow. In case you get errors please provide the text.

Ahh, my bookmarks are in ~/Library/Application Support/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser-Dev/Default/Bookmarks

 

(...not "Brave-Browser/Default/Bookmarks".)

 

They also have a Nightly build now that some people may use. Probably would use Brave-Browser-Nightly, but not sure. Any way to add a preference to specify what version you are using, or maybe it can check multiple folders somehow?

Thanks for the quick responses!

Don't suppose there is a way to make it learn to surface certain bookmarks to the top that I access more frequently?

Everything is possible but brave is not holding that data. In history (hist) the frequency is respected, means it's sorted based on how many times you requested a certain url but not for bookmarks.

I thought maybe Alfred could keep track of how many times I select a particular bookmark and sort ones that were selected most often to the top. No problem if not. Thanks for the response!
