I set up a new Favourite Links page this past weekend. The page is updated automatically to include newest links using IFTTT’s Dropbox and Pocket channels.
All I have to do is favourite a link on Pocket and the recipe appends a Markdown-formatted line to a plain text file in Dropbox:
This works with items already favourited on Pocket. To get the recipe to trigger, I just go to my favourites and click on an item I want on Favourite Links. That’s it.
I’m setting up Instapaper to work similarly, although it’s far less reliable than Pocket in my tests so far.
