The code is on github here and the package is published to npm here. It looks for markdown in the exact format exported by the browser extension, and then tries to render the quotes in the same style as the existing tool.
I'm currently using Quotebacks to help write a blogpost where I collect the most incomprehensible quotes from Adrian Chiles’ column. So that’s something to look forward to.
1 Why? Well, mainly I couldn't figure out how to make it work with what I had. I looked at the code, when I saw it I first thought ‘wow this is totally wild’, and then I realised that by becoming a ‘professional software engineer’ I lost the ability to write and understand some types of code, then I felt a bit weird and sad. YOLO.
