Using the Pocket for Mac URL Scheme

Pocket for Mac supports a URL scheme that can be used to save to a URL to a user's list. In order for this to work, the user must have Pocket installed on their Mac. 

Saving with the URL Scheme

  pocket://add?url=<url>

The URL above demonstrates how the Pocket URL scheme works.

  • The pocket:// protocol will launch the Pocket app on a user's Mac
  • The add command can be used to save a specific URL to Pocket
  • The url argument will be the URL that is saved to Pocket

For example the following URL will open Pocket and save this article when clicked:

pocket://add?url=http://help.getpocket.com/customer/portal/articles/862848
