Pukkadita = del.icio.us Tagging for Google Reader via Pukka

Earlier this month I introduced Gordita — a little bookmarklet generator. The generated bookmarklet lets you del.icio.us tag not only the current web page, but more specifically the current item when you’re in Google Reader. Commenter Justin Hamilton asked for an enhancement: rather than invoke the del.icio.us tagging interface directly, he wanted the bookmarklet to tickle Pukka so that he could target the entry to a specific del.icio.us account (he has more than one).

Well ask and ye shall receive. Drag[1] (the following hyperlink…) Pukkadita to your bookmark toolbar and then click it from any page. Like the vanilla Pukka bookmarklet, this one uses the current page title, location (URL) and selection (if any) to initialize the fields of a new del.icio.us entry via Pukka. Like Gordita, though, this one is aware of Google Reader’s unique DOM structure so if you’re on the Google Reader page you get a reference to the current item (not the page itself).

Pukka enhancing del.icio.us tagging on your Mac, tweaked by Pukkadita to integrate seamlessly with Google Reader. Little tools working together to keep you focused. I like that!

[1] If you’re reading this in Google Reader, the Pukkadita bookmarklet (hyperlink) above has been neutered. It won’t work. To get a working one, navigate to the article on memerocket.com and drag your Pukkadita from there.

  1. Bill,

    This is great! Thank you for putting this together!

  2. Wow, this is cool! I don’t use Google Reader but I was alerted to your Gorditas in a post by my friend Blake Burris. Thanks for winning one for Pukka!

  3. Thankyou! This is a really nice addition. Non Pukka-ness was the only (almost!)thing wrong with Google Reader.

  7. Bill,

    The bookmarklet stopped working for some reason and I can’t figure out why?

  8. Bill says:

    So Justin, there appear to be two problems here. First, if you’re using the new Safari as I am (Safari 3.0 beta) then you may notice that while Reader works, it never highlights the “current” article in a blue outline. This is indicative of the fact that id=’current-entry’ is never getting applied in the DOM. If you have a look at the pukkadita bookmarklet you’ll see that’s the key. Without that, you get a vanilla link to Google reader which is not what you want.
    If that were fixed you’d have the next problem described in the comments on Gordita and fixed in a September 27, 2007 tweak to that bookmarklet.
    Dunno how to fix this Safari 3 beta problem. Any ideas?

    mkay Justin and everybody — that last comment constituted a brain f*rt. I’ve tweaked the pukkadita bookmarklet (on this page) with the recent fix I made to the Gordita bookmarklet and verified pukkadita is working fine on Safari Version 3.0.3 (522.12.1), WebKit Safari WebKit r25773 was built on 27 September 2007, and Firefox Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070914 Firefox/

    Lemme know if you have any problems.

    just installed the pukkadita bookmarklet and found it doesn’t work at all with google reader with safari or firefox. firebug returns the following error message: “t.firstChild.firstChild.childNodes.item(1) is null”

    it does work properly when not using greader. thanks.
