Migration from Python2 to 3 done. Working on a BookMarker


So I had decided that I will do the Python2 to 3 migration of my code base in April itself and I am glad that I was able to do it by 12th April. Solutions to codechef are still present but I decided to leave them be. If I restart online competitions again then I’ll think about them.

I have been thinking about making a BookMarker. I usually keep a lot of BookMarks and my bookmark bar becomes so messed up that I am just unable to arrange them properly. Yeah I like to keep things clean. I have folders inside folders inside in my bookmark bar… you can probably see how many bookmarks there are. It’s just that currently browsers do not allow good enough management of bookmarks. It gets tough. So I thought to make a bookmarker.

So how to manage bookmarks in a better way? Tags and proper search options. Let everything be flat(or in folders) and let there be tags for managing and searching Links. I understand that there are already many online ways to manage bookmarks but I like to try such things out. Also I have some other related ideas  so I thought I would be able to use them if I can control this. Why not try?

I have looked at different ways to make this – PySide, Kivy, django.

I have given up on PySide. I am totally fed up with the documentation that it has. Although there is a really good designer for making the UIs but still the lack of documentation totally puts me off. It is just a collection of links from over the internet so far.

Kivy is looking good and I was seriously considering to use it for this but as this is related to browser and using django will keep it closer to browser. Also a  simple startup script can start the browser with the bookmarker up and running.
