    Thanks for the suggestion Aaron! I’ll take a look at the API in the next few days and will comment on how feasible it will be to add to Exist Integrations.

    I’m still waiting for the API key from Instapaper. I think we could get the number of articles read but I’m not seeing an Exist attribute for minutes read. The Pocket integration links to articles read and words read. That’ll be my target when I’m able to get access to the API.

    Ah, I didn’t actually deeply check the exist api before I logged this one. I had assumed time read was there, since the other “time spent doing x” attributes exist.

    Exciting to see this coming!

    Instapaper uses OAuth 1 to secure their API. This is quite different from OAuth 2 and I haven’t figured out a way to get Exist Integrations to work with Instapaper yet. I’m not giving up yet.

    Unfortunately with the timing that I have to allocate to this project, I’m not going to be able to get an OAuth 1 wrapper integrated into Exist Integrations v2. I’m sadly going to have to abandon this suggestion until Instapaper updates to OAuth 2.
