Share Delicious Library

(with simple HTML)

For anyone interested in sharing the library with friends, here are some tips. For the purpose of this explanation I am going to assume that you have a web server on your machine and that you server root directory is at `/Library/WebServer/Documents`.

1 – Copy your library file, `Library Media Data.xml`, from `~/Library/Application Support/Delicious Library/` to the root directory of you web server. I recommend renaming it to something without spaces, such as `mylibrary.xml`.
2 – Copy the directory `~/Library/Application Support/Delicious Library/Images/Small Covers` to the root of your web server.
3 – Edit the file `mylibrary.xml` (if that is the name you gave it) and add the line:

after then line that reads:

4 – Create a new file called `delicious-library.xsl` in the root folder of your web server and add the following text:

5 – Now from you web server, if it is running on the same machine:

http://localhost/mylibrary.xml

If your web server is not your local computer, then you will simply have to modify the steps with uploading instead of copying. Always be sure to modify a *copy* of your files, and not the originals. You don’t want to get burnt if you make a mistake
