Is there anything a lot like Furl that I can run on my own server?

Bookmark site that I've used in the past have tended to go away.

If your server runs apache with php there are a few. I didn't really like any of them though but here's a list from freshmeat.
  2. Personal Bookmark Manager
  3. Bookmark4U
  4. Active PHP Bookmarks
  5. Active Bookmarks
Actually, with a fresh glance at things I see that Bookmark4U might be close to what I want.

B. is an awesome app if you have your own server to run it on.

B. looks pretty good.

IMO bookmark applications are still missing some elements, it is too specific to just index URLs and nothing else. Here is how I do it.. each of these files is a simple text file using any text editor.


Thus I might edit the file "house" and add an entry like this:

----- ~stb/info/house ------

British style cooking stoves, AGA
These are traditional and unusual stoves, etc..
More notes here.

Local AGA Dealer , AGA Inc.
John Doe (202) 555-1212


So I have lots of room for notes and adding things besides URLs. Like for example quotes from a useful USENET post. Or phone numbers to vendors. In this way on any given subject of interest it is all in a single file -- and of course easily searchable with grep or whatever.

Anyway, just wanted to suggest an alternative way that is pretty simple and safe (as safe as your backups).

I know he won't self-post it, but was created by a Mefi member. The source is available, but it also lets one export ones links as XML. Might be worth a look.
