2: You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
3: long and short of it:
4: <blockquote>Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a central
5: server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.</blockquote>
7: <p>The server is written in Java, and uses XML-RPC to communicate to clients.
8: There's also a client written in Swing, which is pretty functional. The current
9: goal is to get the Mozilla client back into shape given the existence of
10: a working server (finally!)</p>
12: <p>To get the server running on your machine, download the server.zip file
13: <a href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/server.zip">here</a>. You should
14: start the server with
15: <code>java -Dlog4j.configuration=info.xml -jar server.jar</code>
16: in a directory for Bookie usage. No database is required, as Bookie will
17: create its own database if it doesn't find one. It will start on port 9000
18: by default, but you can specify the port on the command line. <a
19: href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/download.html">JDK 1.4</a> with the
20: <code>-server</code> option is recommended, as the I/O performance is MUCH
21: faster than 1.3.1.</p>
23: <p>To get the java client running, download the client.zip file <a
24: href="http://tersesystems.com/bookie/client.zip">here</a>. Unzip the client in a new directory, and execute it with one of the scripts or <code>java -jar client.jar</code>.
26: <p>When the client starts up, it will present you with a connections box:
28: <p> </p>
30: <li>Create a new connection to http://localhost:9000. </li>
31: <li>Double click on the connection to connect to the server. </li>
32: <li>When the server asks you if you would like to be registered for the
33: server, say yes. </li>
34: <li>Click on the root folder, then click on the File menu and select the
35: import menu item. </li>
36: <li>Import your bookmarks by going to your netscape bookmarks.html file
37: and clicking on that. As an example, my Mozilla file is under "C:\Documents
38: and Settings\Will Sargent\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\mq632ho0.slt"
40: <li>Or, if you are using Internet Explorer, you can import your bookmarks by going
41: to "C:\Documents and Settings\Will Sargent\Favorites" and importing the favorites from there.</li>
42: <li>You can also export to Netscape if you want to get bookmarks out of the server.</li>
43: <li>That's it!</li>
47: <p>There is an example bookmark server at
48: <a href="http://tersesystems.com">http://tersesystems.com</a>. To connect
49: to the test server, please enter
51: as your URL. <strong>Please do not use a normal password</strong>:
52: most of Bookie's traffic is not encrypted, and you may be vulnerable to
53: packet sniffing. Also note that there is no expectation of privacy on this
54: server. Although I intend to keep all bookmark information private, I reserve
55: the right to look at any and all data on the server for debugging purposes.
58: <p>Suggestions and comments are welcome. If you have any problems with the
59: above instructions, please e-mail me at the address below.</p>
