Del.icio.us plugin integrates SCAN with Del.icio.us social bookmarking service by enabling Del.icio.us accounts as SCAN document locations. After installing this plugin, new location type is available in the “Collection > Add documents” menu.
The plugin retrieves the bookmarks of a specific Del.icio.us account, or of a specific tag of that account. Like with the Syndication Feed plugin, a user can set an option to download the full text of the bookmarked documents to parse and index. Bookmark properties are used for setting document metadata.
In addition, the plugin can import the bookmarks together with Del.icio.us tags associated with them. It allows to import your existing taxonomy from Del.icio.us into the SCAN repository.
The plugin uses del.icio.us Java API for interacting with the del.icio.us service.
Note: The plugin requires SCAN version 1.1 and higher. Users of the 1.0 version should upgrade their SCAN installations to use this plugin.
