Enhancing del.icio.us: DeWitt Clinton’s Delancey

Share via Twitter Share via Facebook Share via Linkedin Share via Reddit

Speaking of DeWitt, I’m pleased to announce that A9’s first (but not only) Friend of RedMonk has taken the wraps off his new del.icio.us enhancement service Delancey. I got to see the service and provide some feedback a week or two back, and though I didn’t get a chance to provide any in the final round of beta testing (apologies, sir), it’s looking very polished.

I’ll let the developer explain the functionality to you himself, but Delancey can be simply described as an alternative front end to your del.icio.us bookmarks – one which ranks the appearance based on the number of clicks each receives. It allows you to permalink the results for a given tag – here’s the link for the opensource tag pictured, for example – which should be handy for distribution purposes.

Anyhow, I’ve just begun exploring what Delancey has to offer, and I’d recommend that all of you del.icio.us users give it a look now that it’s publically available.

As a side note, thanks to DeWitt for allowing me to look at an early version and provide feedback.

  1. Thanks for the great write-up, Stephen. And thanks to you and to everyone else for their help in testing Delancey.

    And I’d also like to mention that Delancey is entirely open source and Creative Commons licensed (links to the code coming soon), and it could not have been built if not for the open nature of del.icio.us. I’ll be writing a longer article on the development of Delancey — and I encourage everyone to get involved in making it better.

    Thanks again!
