Exporting Links from Safari Reading List via Shortcuts for Mac

Reading List Exporter.

Reading List Exporter.

A few weeks ago in the second lesson of the Automation Academy for Club MacStories+ and Club Premier members, I wrote about how I’ve been using Reminders as a read-later app in addition to traditional task management. The full details are in the story, but to sum up: using a combination of shortcuts based on Apple’s native actions, I can use Reminders to choose between long and short stories whenever I’m in the mood to read something. I love this setup, and I’ve been using it for nearly three months now.

Earlier this week, however, I realized I still hadn’t re-imported old articles from Safari Reading List – my previous read-later tool – into Reminders. That immediately posed an interesting challenge. Sure, I could manually re-save each article from Safari Reading List to Reminders, but that sounded like a chore. Other read-later apps such as Reeder and GoodLinks have long offered Shortcuts actions to fetch links from their databases and process them in Shortcuts however you see fit; Reading List, like other Apple apps , doesn’t support any actions to get the URLs you previously saved. And that’s when I had an idea.

Now that it’s available on macOS, Shortcuts can get access to application support files that are kept private and hidden from users on iOS and iPadOS. More specifically, I remembered that Safari for Mac has long stored its bookmarks and Reading List items in a file called Bookmarks.plist , which folks have been able to read via AppleScript for years . Under the hood, a .plist file is nothing but a fancy dictionary, and we know that Shortcuts has excellent support for parsing dictionaries and extracting data from them.

The plan was simple, and I knew what to do.

Reading List Exporter

To make the process of migrating from Safari Reading List to other read-later apps easier, I created a shortcut called Reading List Exporter.

The shortcut is built entirely with native actions – no scripting necessary – and it reads Safari’s Bookmarks.plist database without modifying it (your data is safe and this shortcut is read-only). With Reading List Exporter, you can automate the process of batch-exporting URLs from Safari Reading List and save them all at once in other read-later apps, the clipboard, or a plain text file. If you’re a Club MacStories+ or Club Premier member, you can even integrate this with the Reminders read-later system I described here .

Running Reading List Exporter on iPad.

Running Reading List Exporter on iPad.

Reading List Exporter was designed to run on a Mac: the Bookmarks.plist file stored in ~/Library/Safari/ can only be accessed via Shortcuts’ ‘File’ action on macOS. Upon installing the shortcut, you’ll be asked to select the Bookmarks.plist file stored in the ~/Library/Safari/ folder in Finder. Select the file in the import question, and you’re good to go in terms of running this shortcut on Monterey.

When you install the shortcut, you'll be asked to manually pick the Bookmarks.plist file in Finder.

Once the file is configured, you're good to go.

Once the file is configured, you’re good to go.

If you don’t see the Library folder in Finder, there are a variety of ways to make it visible . The easiest method:

  • Press ⇧⌘H in Finder to view your Home folder;
  • Press ⌘J to open Finder’s View Options inspector;
  • Select ‘Show Library Folder’

As long as you find a way to make the Library folder visible in Finder and can select the Bookmarks.plist file in ~/Library/Safari/ from Shortcuts, you’re good.

You can also run Reading List Exporter on iOS and iPadOS, but you’ll have to manually copy the ‘Bookmarks.plist’ file into iCloud Drive first. The disadvantage of this approach is that you won’t be working with a live version of Safari’s database – meaning that if you save new items to Reading List, you’ll have to export the Bookmarks.plist file again. That said, it’s totally fine to run the shortcut on iPhone and iPad once you have the Bookmarks.plist file saved somewhere.

If you want to run this shortcut on iOS or iPadOS, you'll have to manually copy the Bookmarks.plist file to iCloud Drive first.

I won’t bore you with the technical details behind how I created this shortcut, but there’s a point I want to highlight. Previously, accessing and parsing Safari’s Bookmarks database would have required searching Google for some finicky piece of AppleScript code that doesn’t always work and is incomprehensible at a glance. This is why I find Shortcuts’ arrival on macOS such a big deal: it makes this kind of advanced automation more approachable and reliable for power users too. Those who believe that “real automation requires scripting” ignore how much easier (and shareable with others!) complex automations can be because of Shortcuts. In the screenshot below, you can see how I parsed Apple’s intricate .plist structure with just a handful of visual blocks in Shortcuts.

But back to Reading List Exporter. After you’ve the selected the Bookmarks.plist file (and you only need to do this once ), you’ll be presented with a menu containing a variety of actions to export your URLs. For instance, I added the ability to batch export all URLs from Reading List to the most popular read-later apps:

These apps are all supported by native actions in Shortcuts. If your favorite app isn’t listed in the shortcut and offers a native action, it should be easy enough for you to modify the Menu and add the app you want to use. Personally, I ran this shortcut and exported all my URLs to Matter as a text, and it worked perfectly.

All my Reading List items exported to Matter.

All my Reading List items exported to Matter.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t add support for Pocket: while Shortcuts does have a Pocket action to save URLs, the action is currently broken in the Shortcuts app and won’t let me authenticate with my Pocket account.

Reading List Exporter also supports these actions:

  • Pick a URL from the list and reopen it in Safari;
  • Preview all URLs with Quick Look;
  • Copy all URLs to the clipboard;
  • Save all URLs to a plain text file.

You can also preview the raw list of URLs with Quick Look.

The ability to export a plain text list of all URLs from Reading List is particularly handy if you’re planning to move these URLs to Obsidian or script them in some other way.

Reminders Integration

If you’re a Club MacStories+ or Club Premier member , Reading List Exporter supports the Save Article shortcut I shared here to use Reminders as a read-later app. Specifically, Reading List Exporter will export each URL to Reminders and automatically categorize it as a long read or short read.

To export your Reading List items to Reminders, make sure to re-download my ‘Save Article’ shortcut, which I have updated with support for Reading List Exporter. Then, run Reading List Exporter on iOS or iPadOS and, depending on the size of your Reading List database, wait a while as the shortcut needs to parse each URL as an article, get its word count, and save it. Again, due to current limitations of Shortcuts for Monterey, this action isn’t supported on macOS at the moment; you’ll have to run this step on iPhone or iPad .

Download Reading List Exporter

Reading List Exporter is, in my opinion, the perfect example of the new possibilities for user automation unlocked by Shortcuts for Mac. Apple never built actions to extract URLs previously saved to Reading List, but, because of Shortcuts for Mac, that doesn’t matter anymore. With the Finder’s ability to view the entire filesystem and Shortcuts’ built-in dictionary actions, we can now easily and quickly open the Reading List database, find all URLs contained in it, and do whatever we want with them. The combination of Shortcuts’ intuitive design and the freedom of macOS is precisely why I’m so excited about Shortcuts for Mac and its potential to reimagine desktop automation.

You can download Reading List Exporter below and find it in the MacStories Shortcuts Archive .

How-To Geek

How to save web pages for offline reading in safari on iphone.

If you'd like to read articles on your iPhone or iPad when you're offline, creating an offline Reading List. Here's how.

Quick Links

How to enable the reading list offline, how to use the reading list in safari.

Enjoy reading on the go but have a bad network signal? If you have an iPhone or iPad linked to an iCloud account, you can save articles to your Reading List for later reading offline using a feature buried in Settings. Here's how.

Before the offline reading list can work, we need to make sure iCloud is set up to save your Safari bookmarks and Reading List. To do that, open "Settings" and tap on your name at the very top.

Then tap "iCloud."

In iCloud settings, scroll down until you see "Safari" and tap the switch to turn it on. If it's already on (the switch will be green), leave it that way.

Now, we need to turn on the offline reading list option. Press back two times in the upper-left corner of the screen until you return to the main Settings page.

Scroll down until you see "Safari" and tap on it. Navigate to the very bottom of the Safari settings screen until you find the "Reading List" section. Tap the switch beside "Automatically Save Offline" so that it is green and turned on.

Now exit Settings and launch Safari. Whenever you'd like to save a web page to your Reading List for offline reading, tap on the "Share" button (which looks like a square with an arrow coming out of it).

In the menu that pops up, select "Add To Reading List."

To view your Reading List later, tap the Bookmarks button in Safari (which looks like an open book), then tap on the tab that looks like a pair of glasses.

From there, you can tap on any one of the items you've saved and it should load up---even if no internet connection is available. Happy reading!

Troubleshooting, how to save reading lists offline on iphone, ipad & mac.

How to Save Reading Lists Offline on iPhone, iPad & Mac

If you regularly make use of Safari’s Reading List feature to save web content for reading later in your free time, you may be interested in checking out the offline reading feature that’s available for reading list items. This makes sure your reading list items are accessible at all times, even if the iPhone, iPad, or Mac is not online.

For those who haven’t tried this feature out, Reading List allows you to save webpages and organize them so that you can check them out later. It’s similar to a bookmark, except that its main focus is written content. However, these saved webpages will still require an internet connection to load up by default and you cannot expect to stay connected to Wi-Fi or LTE at all times. This is exactly where the offline reading list items come in handy. For example, you can load up an iPad, Mac, or iPhone with a bunch of news articles to read before going on a trip.

Whether you have an unreliable internet connection or you want to read content while you’re traveling, you may want to save some of your reading list items offline. Let’s take a look at how this works on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

How to Save Reading Lists Offline on iPhone & iPad

We’ll be checking out the necessary steps for not just the iPhone and iPad, but the Mac as well. If you haven’t added any reading list items yet, feel free to check out how to use Reading List on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac before you go ahead with these steps.

How to Save Reading Lists Offline on iPhone, iPad & Mac

That’s it. All the webpages you save will now be accessible offline and you don’t have to do it individually.

How to Save Offline Reading Lists on Mac

Now that you know how to use the offline feature on iOS/iPadOS devices, let’s check out the procedure for macOS systems. If you’re wondering, it’s fairly similar and easy.

How to Save Reading Lists Offline on iPhone, iPad & Mac

There you go. Even if your Mac isn’t connected to Wi-Fi, your saved webpages will be available to read.

If you use multiple devices like iPhones, iPads, and Macs, you just need to add reading list items on one device. This is because iCloud will automatically sync your reading list items across all your other Apple devices along with Safari bookmarks and history, provided you’re signed into the respective devices with your account.

As you can see, offline reading list items aren’t enabled by default. You either have to manually save each webpage offline or use the global setting that’s available in the Preferences menu.

If you want to remove any of the reading list items that you’ve read, you can swipe left on the saved webpage to access the Delete option if you’re on iOS/iPadOS. On the Mac, you can access the Delete option by right-clicking on Control-clicking on the reading list item.

We hope you were able to learn how to use Safari’s Reading List feature even when you’re not connected to the internet. How often do you read web content from the Reading List? How many OSXDaily articles have you added to your reading list? Share your experiences and thoughts with us.

Safari 101 : How to Use the Reading List to Save Articles, Videos & More for Later Viewing

How to Use the Reading List to Save Articles, Videos & More for Later Viewing

The internet is chock-full of fun and interesting content, but there's only so much time in the day for consuming it. That's when saving webpages for later comes in handy. If you don't want your bookmarks and favorites folders to clutter up fast, consider using the "Reading List" feature built right in Safari on your iPhone.

The Reading List in iOS is a great way to revisit articles, videos, and anything else on the web without filling up your other Safari folders. Bookmarks and favorites should be primarily used for frequently visited websites, while the Reading List is designed more like temporary storage.

This feature is very similar to other ones you've probably used already across iOS. For instance, you can save an article in the News app to view later from the "Saved" tab, and you can even save posts in Facebook to view later in the "Saved" section accessible from either the three-lined or nine-dotted tab. The only difference is, Safari's Reading List isn't as widely known about.

Step 1: Enable Offline Viewing (Optional)

One of the Reading List's best features is its ability to download saved webpages for offline viewing. Unfortunately, this setting is not enabled by default, so you'll have to manually turn it on if you're hoping to catch up on those articles you've saved without any internet.

Open the Settings app, then tap "Safari." Scroll down the page, then, under Rading List , tap "Automatically Save Offline." Your Reading List syncs up across all of your connected iCloud devices, so when this setting is enabled, any articles you add to the list from, say, your Mac, will be downloaded on your iPhone for offline viewing.

Safari 101: How to Use the Reading List to Save Articles, Videos & More for Later Viewing

Step 2: Save Webpages to Your Reading List

Adding items to the Reading List is simple, but depends on whether or not you're actually in Safari right now or inside of another app. We'll go over Safari first, then show you how it works in other apps.

Option 1: Adding from Inside Safari

When on a page you'd like to save, tap the share button from Safari's menu bar. If you don't see the bar, either tap on the top bar (if visible) or swipe down on the page to bring it into view. On the list that pops up, tap "Add to Reading List" from the row of activities.

Safari 101: How to Use the Reading List to Save Articles, Videos & More for Later Viewing

Alternatively, you can add a link to your Reading List when peeking it with 3D Touch . Just apply force to peek, swipe up to access the 3D Touch menu, then tap "Add to Reading List." Of course, this method only works for links you are peeking, not links you are currently viewing.

Safari 101: How to Use the Reading List to Save Articles, Videos & More for Later Viewing

The last way to save a site to your Reading List is arguably the quickest — it just happens to be pretty hidden. While on the page you want to save, tap and hold the book icon in Safari's menu bar. When the popup appears, just tap "Add to Reading List."

Safari 101: How to Use the Reading List to Save Articles, Videos & More for Later Viewing

Option 2: Adding from Other Apps

You can also add to your Reading List from apps other than Safari. Usually, this method only works with links that would automatically open in Safari or apps that have an option to share the link with other services.

Third-party apps like Facebook, which have their own way of saving links for later to read in their own app, won't let you save to your Reading List unless you open the link in Safari first , then proceed from there.

In an app like Mail or Notes, you can peek a URL using 3D Touch, then swipe up to find the "Add to Reading List" option. You can also just tap-and-hold the link to access the menu if you don't have 3D Touch. In an app like News, you can tap the share button, then tap "Add to Safari Reading List" in the activities row on the share sheet. For a link on Twitter, you can tap-and-hold on it, then select "Add to Reading List" from the activities row. And these are just a few examples!

Step 3: View Your Saved Reading List

Once you've added at least one webpage to your Reading List, tap the book icon in Safari's menu bar. Then, tap the glasses icon towards from the options that pop up; This is the Reading List you have saved up.

Safari 101: How to Use the Reading List to Save Articles, Videos & More for Later Viewing

Once in your Reading List, you can scroll through the entries you have saved. Simply tap on any to jump to its webpage or peek first with 3D Touch to see a preview before popping into the site.

Safari 101: How to Use the Reading List to Save Articles, Videos & More for Later Viewing

You can also access a search bar if you swipe down from the top of your list of saved articles if you have way too many and know which one you want. It's just like if you were swiping down on the home screen to access Spotlight.

Step 4: Manage & Delete Your Saved Pages

To delete entries individually, swipe left on them. Swipe less than halfway, and you will reveal a "Delete" button you can tap. Swipe more than halfway and your entry will delete by itself when you lift your finger.

Safari 101: How to Use the Reading List to Save Articles, Videos & More for Later Viewing

Entries will not delete after you read them, however, you can choose to view only the webpages you haven't opened by tapping "Show Unread" in the bottom left of the screen. To see all saved sites again, tap "Show All."

Safari 101: How to Use the Reading List to Save Articles, Videos & More for Later Viewing

You can also manually mark pages as read or unread by swiping right on them. Just as with deleting items, a swipe less than halfway will give you a button to press to mark as read or unread, while a swipe more than halfwayy will automatically mark the page upon release.

How do I export Safari 13.1 Reading List?

In a post here several years back one solution offered was to export Safari bookmarks, then import them into Google Chrome. When imported into Chrome the Safari reading list will appear as a separate Chrome bookmarks list.

That works so far, but how then do you get the reading list exported back out of Chrome? There seems to be no way to export just the reading list in stead of the reading list+bookmarks.

How to Organize Safari Reading List into Bookmarks

By: Author Alex Lim

Posted on Last updated: December 7, 2023

Home > How to Organize Safari Reading List into Bookmarks

If you use Safari on MacOS Ventura, you might have a lot of websites in your Reading List that you want to revisit later. But what if you want to sort them into different categories or folders? Unfortunately, Safari does not let you drag and drop Reading List items into your Bookmarks. In this article, we will show you a simple workaround to move your Reading List items to a Bookmark folder without opening each website individually.

Table of Contents

What is the Reading List in Safari?

Why move reading list items to bookmarks, how to move reading list items to a bookmark folder, frequently asked questions (faqs), question: how do i delete all reading list items in safari, question: how do i sync my reading list across different devices, question: how do i export my reading list or bookmarks from safari.

The Reading List is a feature in Safari that allows you to save websites for offline reading. You can add any website to your Reading List by clicking on the plus icon next to the address bar, or by using the keyboard shortcut Command+Shift+D. You can access your Reading List by clicking on the sidebar icon on the top left corner of the Safari window, or by using the keyboard shortcut Command+Shift+L. You can also swipe left or right on the trackpad to navigate through your Reading List items.

How to Organize Safari Reading List into Bookmarks

While the Reading List is a convenient way to save websites for later, it has some limitations. For example, you cannot organize your Reading List items into folders or subfolders. You can only sort them by date or by name. You also cannot sync your Reading List across different devices, unless you use iCloud. If you have a lot of Reading List items, you might find it hard to find the ones you are looking for.

Bookmarks, on the other hand, allow you to create folders and subfolders to categorize your websites. You can also sync your Bookmarks across different devices using iCloud or other services. Bookmarks are more permanent than Reading List items, which can be removed automatically after a certain period of time.

There is no direct way to move Reading List items to a Bookmark folder in Safari. However, there is a simple workaround that you can use to achieve the same result. Here are the steps to follow:

  • Create a new Bookmark folder in Safari. You can do this by clicking on the Bookmarks menu and selecting Add Bookmark Folder. You can also right-click on any existing Bookmark folder and select New Folder. Give your new folder a name that describes the category of websites you want to move from your Reading List.
  • Open your Reading List in Safari. You can do this by clicking on the sidebar icon on the top left corner of the Safari window, or by using the keyboard shortcut Command+Shift+L.
  • Select the Reading List items that you want to move to your new Bookmark folder. You can do this by holding down the Command key and clicking on each item. You can also select multiple items by clicking and dragging your cursor over them.
  • Right-click on any of the selected Reading List items and choose Add Bookmarks for [number] Items. This will open a dialog box where you can choose the destination folder for your new Bookmarks. Select your new Bookmark folder and click Add.
  • Delete the Reading List items that you have moved to your new Bookmark folder. You can do this by right-clicking on any of the selected Reading List items and choosing Remove Item, or by pressing the Delete key on your keyboard.

Answer: To delete all Reading List items in Safari, you can follow these steps:

  • Open your Reading List in Safari.
  • Click on the Clear All button on the bottom right corner of the sidebar.
  • Confirm that you want to delete all Reading List items by clicking Clear.

Answer: To sync your Reading List across different devices, you need to use iCloud. You can follow these steps:

  • On your Mac, open the System Preferences app and click on Apple ID.
  • Click on iCloud and make sure Safari is checked under the Apps on this Mac using iCloud section.
  • On your other devices, such as iPhone or iPad, open the Settings app and tap on your name.
  • Tap on iCloud and make sure Safari is turned on under the Apps using iCloud section.

Answer: To export your Reading List or Bookmarks from Safari, you can follow these steps:

  • Open Safari and click on the File menu.
  • Select Export Bookmarks. This will save your Reading List and Bookmarks as an HTML file on your computer.
  • You can open this file with any web browser or import it to another browser.

In this article, we have shown you how to move your Reading List items to a Bookmark folder in Safari on MacOS Ventura. This can help you organize your websites into different categories and sync them across different devices.

How to view and clear your web browsing history in Safari on iPhone or iPad

Easily wipe your browsing history in Apple's Safari web browser in seconds.

iPhone 13 mini in hand

What you'll need

How to find your web-browsing history, how to clear your web browsing history.

Clearing your browsing history on iPhone and iPad in Safari has been a straightforward affair for years now.

Sometimes you want to clear your history to get rid of bloat and streamline your browsing experience. Other times, you're trying to hide a gift purchase from a loved one.

Apple makes it very easy to clear your browsing history on both the iPhone and iPad and we're here to show you how. Here's how you can make a fresh start in Safari and debloat your web browsing experience.

On the latest models, web browsing is smoother than ever before thanks to ProMotion in the iPhone 15 Pro and faster chipsets like the M2 found in the iPad Air 6 . If you're looking for a new Apple device, we highly recommend one of the following: 

iPhone 15 Pro $999 at Apple

iPhone 15 Pro $999 at Apple

Grab the best iPhone available right now starting from $999. With a gorgeous titanium finish and the most powerful chip ever in an iPhone, you won't be disappointed with the 15 Pro. 

iPad Air 6 13-inch |$799$754 at Amazon

iPad Air 6 13-inch | $799 $754 at Amazon

With an M2 chip and a 13-inch screen option, the new iPad Air 6 is one of the best iPads available right now. Normally $799, you can pick up the 13-inch model for nearly $50 off at the moment — don't miss out.

Viewing your web history in iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 is very easy to do, here's how:

  • In Safari, tap the Bookmarks button in the toolbar that's below the address bar.
  • Tap the History icon in the upper right corner. Here, you can view your entire web history.

To search for bookmarks, tap the Bookmarks button in the toolbar at the bottom of the app, then select the Bookmark icon.

  • Use the History search bar to find previously viewed pages.

To find History, tap the History menu. Then use the search to find previously viewed information.

If the time calls to wipe most or all of your web browsing history in Safari, here's how to do it on both iPhone and iPad.

To note, the below steps will be the same if you attempt to wipe your web browsing history on an iPhone 15 Pro Max or an iPad Mini 6 , all Apple devices require the same steps.

  • In Safari, tap the Bookmarks button.
  • Select the History icon in the upper right corner.
  • Tap Clear and select how much history you'd like to clear: the last hour, the last day, 48 hours' worth, or all recorded history.

Safari iOS 17 Clear web history

One more thing… A feature no one talks about

Privacy on the web matters more than ever in these modern times. Websites store the pages you click on, especially when you sign into a page that can contain personal information about you.

It's great to have a feature like this in Safari — but it would be good to have this automated in iOS 18 . If Apple's web browser could automatically clear history after 24 hours it would be very useful, as you wouldn't leave a trail behind.

Regardless, it's still a good feature, and one you should use every week.

Google Chrome makes it incredibly easy to export all your bookmarks, so you can take them with you to any new browser of your choice. It's a fairly simple process that only takes a few minutes.
