Retrieve URLs and Tags from Del.icio.us with Python API on Ubuntu

For DeliciousAPI, please refer to Michael G. Noll web page. My previous post on DeliciousAPI would be useful too.

  1. Install Python on your machine. Most of the time, Ubuntu will come with Python already.
  2. Install “Easy Install” for Python by running terminal and type
    sudo apt-get install python-setuptools python-dev build-essential

    For more details, please refer to SaltyCrane Blog.

  3. Install DeliciousAPI by running
sudo easy_install DeliciousAPI

Now you can use DeliciousAPI on Python already!!! Just go to Michael’s web page then copy the demo code to a txt file, say test.py. Then go to the folder containing the file and run it from the terminal by typing “python test.py”. For more detail about how to install the API on Windows7, please refer to my previous post.
