I've open sourced Feedly2Instapaper

tl;dr: Feedly2Instapaper is a simple Python script that connects to your Feedly and Instapaper accounts to add your "Saved for later"-entries as a new bookmark in Instapaper. If the bookmark was created , the corresponding entry in Feedly is removed.

Why?

I use both Feedly and Instapaper on a daily basis. Feedly serves as my aggregator and Instapaper is my "library" of articles I want to read later or archive. The only thing missing was a direct connection between both apps, which required me to manually share a Feedly entry with Instapaper.

How?

There are some tools out there, free and paid, that I've tested, but none of them did exactly what I wanted and when I wanted. So I wrote my own script that leverages both API's to connect to my Feedly and Instapaper accounts and adds my "Saved for later"-entries as a new bookmark in Instapaper. If the bookmark was created , the corresponding entry in Feedly is removed. A cron-job checks my Feedly entries and does the "heavy" lifting for me.

Where?

I wanted to give back to open source community and make as simple as possible to download and use the tool. I cleaned up my code, published it on GitHub and PyPi and wrote detailed instructions so you can automate a small part of your workflow.

Have a look on GitHub and let me know what you think.
