Browser Extensions

Here are the official Pinboard browser plugins:

Opera users can try a third-party extension - Pinboard Toolbar buttons - for quick bookmarking and tagging.

Javascript Widgets

Little pieces of Javascript code you can paste into a blog or web page template to display your tags and links, styled however you want.

  • Linkroll: show a list of your most recent bookmarks.
  • Tag cloud widget: create a handsome javascript tag cloud on any web page.

Mobile Apps

There's a mobile version of Pinboard. You can post bookmarks by email, which can be easier than regular bookmarking when on a mobile device.

I don't make an iPhone or Android app for Pinboard, but encourage any third-party apps that want to add Pinboard support.
