Delicious Bookmarklet for iPad

Keep, share, and discover the best of the Web using Delicious.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to setup the Delicious bookmarklet on your Apple iPad.

We will need to create a bookmark and then go back and edit the bookmark to include the JavaScript code for the Delicious bookmarklet. The steps that we will be following are similar to other tutorials — only we will be inserting the code for Delicious.

Install the Delicious bookmarklet on the iPad

We will complete the following steps via the iPad.

Prepare your iPad & open this tutorial in mobile Safari

  • From your iPad, go to “Settings” and tap on “Safari.” Set Always Show Bookmarks Bar to “ON.” Set JavaScript to “ON.” Set Accept Cookies to “From visited.”
  • Next, open the Safari app and open this current page (go to and search for “Delicious” and select the tutorial for the iPad).
  • Now copy the code in the section (Delicious bookmarklet code)

Create a temporary bookmark in mobile Safari

Next, tap on the share icon (square with a right arrow) at the top of your Safari page and tap “Add Bookmark.” Ensure that it will be saving to the “Bookmarks Bar” and then hit “Save.”

Update the temporary bookmark with the code for the bookmarklet

  1. Now tap on the bookmark icon (open book) to pull up your bookmarks. Tap on the “Bookmarks Bar” folder. Then tap “Edit” in the top corner of your window.
  2. Select the bookmark that you just created. Change the name to something of your choice – perhaps ‘Delicious’ or ‘Save to Delicious’ or ‘Add to Delicious’.
  3. Next, erase the URL shown and paste the bookmarklet code for Delicious (press and hold, then release, then tap “Paste”).
  4. Hit “Bookmarks Bar” located in the bottom top left corner to go back. Tap “Done” located in the top right corner. Tap the bookmark icon to make it disappear.

Those are all the steps! You’ve now installed the Delicious bookmarklet on your iPad.

    It is easier indeed if you keep this tutorial open on your computer’s web browser. And if you follow carefully these steps it is impossible not to succeed. This installation is very easy to complete and takes so little time.

    This appears to be the same code that’s on the delicious site, and it’s a really horrible way of doing it.
