Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150511103818

Steps to reproduce:

I click on the pocket icon


Actual results:

It just allows me to signup at getpocket.com / login into readitlater.com services


Expected results:

Similar to the share API it should allow the user to pick an service provider of his choice. Esp. this includes open and selfhosted alternatives as wallabag.org etc. that still require custom estenstions while pocket is that nicely integrated.

This is a feature request, so I can't submit a test case.

You need to form a generic API for pocket like services as selfhosted wallabag.org instances. They already offer an (ugly) FF addon to integrate the service to firefox. Why don't you offer the share API for such kind of services?
