Use Drafts URL Actions to Add a Link to Pinboard via Pinbook, Pushpin or Pinner

The newest version of Drafts for iOS now supports URL Actions that make use of URL schemes. URL schemes are essentially special links that allow you to launch an action within another app on your iPhone.

Three useful apps on the iPhone are Pinbook, Pushpin, and Pinner which use URL schemes to add a bookmark to Pinboard. Here’s info on Pushpin’s URL scheme, Pinbook’s URL scheme, and Pinner’s URL scheme.

At most, Drafts lets you break a draft into two parts: the first line [[title]] and the rest [[body]].

Using these apps’ URL schemes, you can import a draft into Pinboard if you put the title in the first line and the URL in your second line of your draft.

You can manually enter these URL Actions into Drafts:




Or if you’re reading this on your iPhone, just tap on either of these links to import the URL Action directly into Drafts:
