Wallabag v2 – Pocket (getPocket/ReadItLater) alternative

From long time now I been using getPocket on daily basis – it main straight been big compatibility with IFTTT (if this then that) service which main purpose was automation of some things to make using web more attractive.

I stopped using IFTTT some time ago and I use Pocket just to store urls and sync them with other devices. That functionality now is embedded inside most common web browsers like Firefox and other known one. But I wanted to have full control over what url I want to store and I don’t need to know what are ‘popular’ links other stores.

Let us download needed package:

Extract it to /opt/wallabag

Configure vhost for apache:

From /opt/wallabag directory run:

To test wallabag we can start it from embedded web server that is inside wallabag:

 

Of course that command will start server on port 8000 on localhost, so we can access it only from that host – as security measure.

 

Version 2.0.0 had it release at 04/03/2016 so the android app don’t support the newest version, but the system works great anyway.
