Dock2XBEL

This script converts a binary plist with structure like com.apple.dock.plist, and creates an XBEL file containing any URLs the user had on his Mac OS X dock.

To use, copy ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist to the same folder where dock2xbel.py is located. Ensure that the folder can be written to, and run dock2xbel.py.

hg clone https://bitbucket.org/ivucica/dock2xbel dock2xbel
cd dock2xbel
cp ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist .
./dock2xbel.py

As output, you'll get com.apple.dock.bookmarks.xbel. You can then import it into supporting bookmarks software. For example, certain tools may, aside from exporting content from Safari, also allow importing content from XBEL and then importing the content back into Safari.

This was written solely for personal needs. Script is completely unsupported. If you're having any problems with dock2xbel.py, fix them in a fork and submit a pull request. The script is completely unsupported.
