“Pinboard Search” is an experimental feature first available in Pins 2022.2 for Pro users. If you haven’t done so, be sure to unlock the app to get access to this and everything Pins has to offer.
For all Pinboard users, you can now perform Search Mine / Search Network / Search All from within the app. For those with an archival account, you can also Search Full Text.
Here’s how the new search works (if you have purchased the unlock). There’s no public API so you need to enter your username/password and only a top results are returned. pic.twitter.com/y93NKrHLi7— Pins for Pinboard (@GetPinsApp) November 1, 2022
- Pinboard doesn’t offer an official API to access its search capability, hence the need for entering your username and password. These are stored separately from the login credentials so you will need to enter them even if you use your username/password combo to log in with Pins.
- Pins also displays only the first page of search results to keep the feature simple. Based on feedback, I may add support for more results but this is not in my immediate roadmap.
