- It works again. Yes, changes in the delicious interface crippled it. Sadly, I was travelling and unable to fix it. Thanks to those for pointing out the problem, and even better - the solution!
- Zip through. Faster operation since it will now only use that pesky del.icio.us-mandated delay on the bookmarks that it changes. If no rule changes the bookmark, it will jump straight to the next one without waiting. Now you can ruin your bookmarks even faster!
As always, I love getting comments so please send 'em in: horror stories, bugs, fixes, extensions, navel-gazing, use-cases - and especially your regexps and (shudder) functions.
I've bolted more bells and whistles on to this power tool. It now supports tag stemming. Suppose you have similar tags like blog, blogging and blogs. Scripted Re-Mark can detect that these are similar (ie share a common stem, blog) and rename accordingly. Great for rationalising your tagspace, especially with plurals, tenses and the like.
There's also new support for a "touched tag" ie a tag that is added to all bookmarks that are updated. This is handy for multi-stage processing and manually reviewing edits.
I'm always looking out for more ideas, so please send them in!
Bowing to public pressure, Scripted Re-Mark now features a mass delete option. Wanna make some bookmarks drink the grape-flavoured Kool-Aid? Now you can ...
Please, be careful with this as it has the potential to inflict much sadness.
