How to export your data
Export was an available feature for portions of the product's life, but not under others. In particular, during a long stretch of 2016-2017 under the Science, Inc. ownership, export was not available. Science, Inc. promised the feature would return, but it did not under their ownership.1
As a result of the inability of export, at least one developer wrote a script to allow a limited version of export.
Following the acquisition by Pinboard, it was promised that the data export feature would be turned back on before the website was frozen on 2017-06-15 at which point no new bookmarks would be allowed to be created.
2017-06-11 The native export function on the site was finally re-enabled at https://del.icio.us/export.
