Full export is planned. We do regular backups of all databases on the server.
We are also doing work on full offline support where a copy of the database is kept on your device.
If by import you mean to restore a Clibu database, then that is also planned. Import from other applications is more difficult as every application is different.
Neville Franks, what about the import/export capability? Export is necessary for these reasons:
- To keep a full backup of my content in my computer in common form (text and images).
- To export a text search result or all articles with the same tag.
Exporting to HTML and then parsing the result is a pretty good idea actually. I might give it a shot when I have a bit more time.
Thanks for your help!
Surfulater content is stored across three databases which is pretty messy. I doubt whether there is an easy way to directly access the databases to extract what's needed for export.
There is no REST interface, nor a HTTP Server in Surfulater.
The only thing I can think of that may be possible is to use Surfulater's Publish to Web KB capability and then process the html output files and convert them into a format suitable for importing into Clibu.
Note that Clibu doesn't have import/export yet, but both a coming.
Would it be difficult to build out an export capability, or potentially something we can build out ourselves? From memory the data is stored in a sql lite database in a non-proprietary format (I don't know what the clibu interface is like.. I assume it has a REST interface?).. I suppose the mapping wouldn't be exactly 1-1 given that clibu has no folders (so you'd have to create the equivalent hierarchical tags in clibu)
Thanks, slowly but surely it gets better with each new release.
* At present I have no plans on importing from Surfulater. The main problem being that Surfulater has no export capability.
* Clibu has a snapshot capability already, however I haven't exposed it's user interface as yet.
* Search across KBs is definitely coming.
Apologies for the delay replying, but I put it on the back-burner over the xmas break so I could focus on new Clibu development and planning.
