RIL2Insta - Import Read it Later links to Instapaper

One of my long time wish to write a Chrome extension completed last week. It all started when my answer was down-voted at apple.stackexchange.com, the original answer was based on my experience sometime ago I was searching to migrate my links between my Instapaper accounts.


How does it work?

It parses your exported *.html file for links and submit each items to Instapaper to add to your account.
  1. Login to your readitlaterlist.com in a new tab.
  2. Goto http://readitlaterlist.com/export/ to export all your links.
  3. Download and install latest version of RIL2Insta from Github
  4. Paste content of your exported file in the grey-textbox.
  5. Provide your Instapaper credentials and click Post it for me.

Code is available at Github - https://github.com/palaniraja/RIL2Insta

  4. Thank you SO much! I just had a very frustrating hour trying to figure out how to get my Readability list into Instapaper, and this extension (along with this tool: http://hsablonniere.github.com/readability2pocket/) finally did it. Brilliant!
