The IFTTT vs Pinboard thing happened just as I was planning to use it to post bookmarks from Pinboard to this website. This plus the general desire to use open source software on my own server led me to exploring alternatives…

Huginn is the most popular one, but it’s not a good fit for my low-memory VPS. Unicorn/DelayedJob/MySQL? Uh… nope. So, the urge to Write My Own Thing is very strong :D But in the Pinboard Twitter thread people have suggested bip.io and Node-RED. Looks like I’ll try Node-RED first, because it does not use a fscking database! Just plain old files.
