Workflow for uploading bookmarks to Blot
With the new feature of Blot to use OS X bookmarks to quickly post interesting sites to your own blog I already wrote how to use it on a platform other that a Mac.
But wouldn’t it also be nice to be able to share a bookmark to your blog when you only have access to a mobile device, specifically an iOS device…
Out-of-the-box Safari on iOS has no way to save a bookmark other than as a regular bookmark. Good thing iOS has a share sheet and Workflow app.
I built the following workflow using the Workflow app that enables you to save out a bookmark file to Dropbox. The workflow has been setup as a share sheet extension so anywhere you have the ability to share an URL this extension would work.
Workflow - Upload Link
The workflow consists of three simple actions
|1 - Text
||Insert input from the share sheet (i.e. an URL) into the bookmark template|
|2 - Set Name
||Ask for a file-name to be used for the bookmark file (do not remove .webloc)|
|3 - Save to Dropbox
||Save the file to the folder
If you want to use this workflow for yourself, feel free. You can get it here.
