Hmm, might be able to build a Tumblr importer pretty easily, especially since auth is already implemented for cross-posting 🤔

Yes, a Tumblr importer *is* pretty simple with the existing integration.

Got posts pulled in, HTML converted to Markdown, tags and dates parsed, all compiled into Write.as-friendly text. Now just need to add them to the database and create a little importer UI.

I should say, text posts are pulled in right now. Still need to test quote, link, photo, etc. types.

All should be straightforward except for photo types; need to create some stable @snap_as API endpoints for that. Video won't be supported for now.

But I'll probably be able to finish this all by Monday.

@writeas_dev @snap_as would it be possible to separate our reblogs from original posts? Most of the exporters just give you everything, which seems to be what a fair amount of people are looking for, but I’m only really looking to save the stuff *I* wrote

@Satsuma I'll have to check if Tumblr gives out that information, as I'm not sure off the top of my head. But that's good to know!

@writeas_dev @Satsuma
Tumblr does give that information, in a roundabout way. It tells you who the OP of a post is, and who the post was reblogged from. You can check against that.

@writeas_dev @Satsuma
Are you not supporting video because write.as doesn't support video?

@lesbianhacker Thanks! I was looking for something like that -- I'll give it a try.

And yes, since it doesn't have a place to put the video (or audio), those type of posts will be excluded. Maybe we'll support importing them and putting them somewhere reliable in the future.
