Tumblr blog backup - findings and questions
Hey guys, I've been playing with Tumblr backups over the past couple years, but it's a weird hoard, with a focus on grabbing all the text along with some images. So far, I haven't really found a method that's 'just right', as Goldilocks would say.
The end goal
all posts, including asks (and appended text)
all self-posted images (not necessarily reblogged media)
the first 50 post notes (far as I know, no backup utility does this)
blog information (icon, title, blogroll, etc.)
(ideally) the ability to process multiple blogs as a batch
public likes (maybe?)
Basically, a full mirror of a given Tumblr blog.
Things I've tried so far
Tumblr2Wordpress: Creates a Wordpress-compatible XML that's really quite excellent, except for its inability to catch asks, and its unfortunate tendency to stall with larger archives. And blogs must be fed in one-by-one manually. No images.
RSS: A strange quirk of Tumblr RSS feeds is asks. Asks that get reblogged with added text only show up as the original ask/answer pair in RSS.
[EDIT] People have suggested more utilities in the comments.
Potential other backup solutions
HTTrack: Has anyone had success with HTTrack and Tumblr? It preserves the look and feel of a page, but given Tumblr's quirks (crazy amount of useless elements, endless scrolling and weird themes), I'm not sure how it'll turn out.
Trying to hoard Tumblr is one hell of a struggle. But I'm greedy, and stuff I like keeps getting deleted all the time. :( If you guys have ever attempted to download a blog, what did you use, and how did it turn out? And do you reckon there's a way to configure HTTrack to do the job?
Edit 2: Be sure to check the comments. Loads of great utilities down there!
Tumblr is a popular micro-blogging platform and social networking website suitable for short blog posts. Most Tumblr users use Tumblr blogs, called a 'tumblelog”, to post multimedia content. Because it’s okay to post only images without any textual content on a tumblelog, this blogging platform is popular among photographers, artist, graphic designers and creators of different types of multimedia content. You can follow any Tumblr blog via RSS feeds, but if you wish to download and save images to your computer, you’ll have to use one of the following tools.
How To Save Tumblr Content
DownloadTumblr is a free, portable and open source tool that allows you to download as many images you want from Tumblr blogs. Simply enter the name of the Tumblr blog and the number of pages you want the program to parse, and then click on the “Scan for pics” button. The program will list the URL of all images found, and on your action download them to the directory of your choice. The only drawback is that you can’t preview the images before downloading.
How To Download Your Tumblr Blog Free
Gettumblrpic is another free, portable and open source program that looks similar to DownloadTumblr. Gettumblrpic too lets you enter the name of the Tumblr blog and the number of pages to scan. However, instead of actually downloading the images it only returns the URL of the images found. It’s your job to download them whatever way you prefer. The links are automatically saved to a text file within the program directory.
tumblr-downloader is yet another free, portable and open source program for downloading images from Tumblr blogs. This program lets you specify and download images from multiple Tumblr blogs at once. Within the program directory is a text file called accounts.txt. Edit this file and enter the names of the Tumblr blogs you want to download images from. Then double click on tubmlr.jar to start downloading the images. Unliked the rest of the lot, tumblr-downloader will download images from only the first page of the Tumblr blogs.
How To Download Your Tumblr Blog
Keep in mind, that in all these three programs you have to enter only the name of the Tumblr blog and not the complete URL. For instance, enter chappedlipsandchiclets and not chappedlipsandchiclets.tumblr.com.
