Linkding is an efficient bookmark management tool that is designed to be quick, simple and self-hostable. Its moniker 'Linkding' takes its inspiration from the term 'link', commonly used as a synonym for URLs and bookmarks, combined with 'Ding', German for 'thing'. Essentially, it serves as your go-to tool for managing all your links.
The software offers an array of features that places emphasis on functionality, ease of use and organization. It provides a clean user interface (UI) optimized for readability while letting you organize your bookmarks with tags. You can add notes using Markdown and take advantage of the 'read it later' functionality. It also allows bulk editing of links and sharing bookmarks with other users.
Automatically fetching titles, descriptions, and icons of bookmarked websites makes Linkding highly convenient to use. It also creates snapshots of these sites on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine automatically. Importing or exporting bookmarks in Netscape HTML format is possible along with extensions available for Firefox and Chrome browsers. The software supports both light and dark themes which can be switched based on personal preference.
For developers wanting to integrate Linkding into third-party applications, there's an available REST API. An admin panel is present providing user self-service features and raw data access options. Linkding ensures easy setup utilizing Docker and a SQLite database while offering PostgreSQL as another option.
