Saves your Mastodon bookmarks to Pocket and adds a link back to the Mastodon post in Pocket.
What is PocketToots?
PocketToots is a Firefox add-on that saves your Mastodon bookmarks to Pocket and adds a link back to the source toot. It creates a PocketToots folder in your Firefox bookmarks and tags saved links with 'PocketToots'. PocketToots is open source and can be configured to work with any Mastodon instance.
In order to do this, it creates a PocketToots folder in your bookmarks in Firefox, which it uses to associate pocket items with source toots. When it tries to save the bookmarks to Pocket, it will ask you to authorize the extension. For access to your Mastodon bookmarks, it is enough to load the Mastodon instance’s page while logged in. The extension will pick up the API key from the page.
Links saved to Pocket will be tagged with “PocketToots”.
After installation, you will be asked to provide the URL of the Mastodon instance you are using. You can change it later in the extension’s preferences: Click on ☰, Add-ons and themes, Extensions, PocketToots, Preferences, type the URL (e.g. “https://mastodon.social/”) into the field and hit Save.
