MyInternetShortcuts is the ProgClub shortcut management software. That's the software that helps you organize and share your internet shortcuts. For other projects see projects.


Under way. Not released yet, there's stuff TODO.


Why this software? Because some friends and I started a project to do this back around the year 2000 and we never shipped it. I think it would be cool software to have.

Functional specification

The functional specification describes what the project does.

This project is in planning. It's two things:

  1. It's a shortcut/bookmark repository that works across your web-browsers. So it can sync with your phone, your firefox, your chrome, etc. (Note: I don't know how to do that technically yet but I'm sure it's possible at least to some degree). The repository has a hierarchical structure (i.e. folders) and shortcuts (a name and a URL in a folder) can have tags. So there is a primary hierarchy and secondary classification. Sorting is done manually so items don't have to be in alphabetical order (but there will be options to automatically sort as desired if desired). Drag/drop for organization.
  2. It's a shortcut/bookmark sharing system. So you can share (some of) your shortcuts with your friends, and vice versa.

Would be cool to have 'dead links' detection to know when links die. Would be cool if you could edit your firefox bookmarks toolbar and have that sync to your phone and other browsers.

You can share any of your folders with any of your friends, giving them read or read/write permissions. Good for teams sharing a folder with an organized hierarchy of links relevant to a project where some team members can administer the collection and everyone gets updates.

See notes above about getting source code from svn.



Things to do, in rough order of priority:

  • Create the project in svn
  • Develop web-interface for management: folders, tags, shortcuts (name, URL)
  • Research Firefox integration
  • Research iPhone/Safari integration
  • Research Chrome integration
