Convert Favorites to Bookmarks.html PDF Print E-mail

This script is from Aaron Bradly and was published on his Blog. It converts all Favorites from Microsoft Internet Explorer XHTML-valid to Bookmarks.html. I changed it a bid, because no pipe exists on Windows.

import os
import os.path
import sys
# the favorites folder of Windows
dir = u'C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\your_userid\Favoriten'
files = os.listdir(dir)
bookmarks = open('bookmarks.html', 'w')
head = "Bookmarks"
#print header
for file in files:
        if not file[-4:] == '.url':
        title = file[:-4]
        fn = os.path.join(dir, file)
        body = open(fn).readlines()
        for line in body:
                token = 'BASEURL='
                if line[:len(token)] == token:
                        url = line[len(token):].strip()
                        url = url.replace("&", "&")
                        url = url.replace("<", "<")
                        url = url.replace(">", ">")
                        title = title.replace("&", "&")
                        title = title.replace("<", "<")
                        title = title.replace(">", ">")
                        main= (u'%s
' % (url, title)).encode('u8', 'ignore')

My prefered Python IDE

My prefered Python editor is Pyscripter from MMExperts. It is not only an editor. Pyscripter is a full Python IDE including (remote) debugging, a class browser, and all other nice helpers which a full featured IDE needs.

My prefered web framework

My prefered web framework for developing web applications is Django. Django calls itself The web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. It is a really fast, scalable and (thanks Python) the sexiest web framework of the world.
