Is there a way to get a random bookmark/item in Raindrop.io, Pocket, or browser bookmarks?


Recommended Posts

I recently started using Readwise for my highlights, and I found that I really loved the spaced repetition feature where it'd give me a digest of random highlights I had each day. I realized that what would really help me with all the stuff I have saved is being able to get a random bookmark saved in my browser or bookmark saved in Pocket or Raindrop.io. It'd help me remember things that I actually wanted to view later but got buried and help me organize stuff.

 

So since Alfred can search through my bookmarks and through Raindrop.io (and maybe Pocket? I don't know if there's a workflow for that that still works), I was wondering if there was a way to get a random one? I know that there is a Random utility, but it looks like it would need to be added to the script of the workflow. I mean, I'm willing to learn and build my own workflow, I just want to make sure that I'm not missing anything.

 

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question or if I'm not making sense. I literally just started using Alfred yesterday haha.

Precisely. The Workflow which does the searching should be where the random option is added. You may want to ask the developer to add it. If you use Pinboard, PinPlus does allow opening random “to read” bookmarks.
