You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
long and short of it:
Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a
central server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.
<p>I have a server which is currently using <a
href="http://www.xmlrpc.com">XML-RPC</a> and implements three commands:
<code>getRoot</code>, <code>getNode</code> and <code>getChildren</code>. It
returns <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/rdf/doc">RDF</a> data in the same
format that Mozilla itself internally for bookmarks. This is all I need to
iterate through a tree.
A snapshot of the server (and a java client) is <a href="/bookie-20010708.zip">here</a>. Both the client and the server are fully functional. (Note that you will need a database and JDBC driver before you start the server, but the SQL scripts are included).
<p>The Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does pick up XML-RPC
queries and display the RDF in a little window. If you enjoy pain or would
like to help, then you can pick up the code from <a
Thanks to Aaron Andersen for the cool <a
<p>Suggestions and comments are welcome.
