Smarky for Mac2.12

27 September 2021

Alphabetize Safari bookmarks with iCloud compatibility.

What is Smarky for Mac

Smarky is the bookmarks manager for Safari bookmarks which is compatible with Apple's iCloud. After installing Smarky and enabling iCloud syncing, you can have automatically alphabetized and organized Safari bookmarks on all of your Apple devices.

Note: We are no longer actively promoting Smarky because, beginning with one of the Safari 11 releases, in Safari’s Bookmarks Edit Bookmarks, there is a Sort By contextual menu which will sort items. This is certainly not as powerful and flexible as Smarky, but given that installing and maintaining any app is a bit of work and cognitive overhead, we feel that users who just want their bookmarks in alpha-numeric order are better off by once in a while using this this new function which is now built into Safari. However, if you are a bookmark nerd that wants more, Smarky's built-in store is still open and our plans are to continue supporting Smarky.

What's new in Smarky

Version 2.12:
  • No longer exports to the legacy Bookmarks Menu hard folder in Safari.  During your first export to Safari with this version or later, any items in a Bookmarks Menu will be appended to any existing items in Safari’s root level instead.  So, the items will still appear in the main menu Bookmarks on your Mac as they always have.  But in Safari on any iOS devices synced by iCloud, they will appear at the root level, and the legacy Bookmarks Menu which previously appeared under Favorites in iOS will be gone.  Summary: Although this is a rather serious change under the hood, you may not even notice it.  Your bookmarks will be organized more uniformly across macOS and iOS devices, and more importantly, you will avoid a couple of new issues which we have seen when the legacy Bookmarks Menu is populated in macOS 12 Monterey.
  • Can now export new folders to Safari in macOS 12 (Safari 15), instead of crashing the underlying process (Pajara or SheepSafariHelper) while indicating indeterminate progress, and finally, after 5 minutes, failing and displaying timeout Error 591200, with a Suggestion to fix… that does not work.
  • Corrected the Full Disk Access warnings and errors to give better information for macOS 11.4 and later, since when Apple requires that our syncing agent (BkmxAgent) be granted Full Disk Access on its own because it no longer just inherits it from BookMacster, Synkmark or Smarky.
  • Notification of any error occuring in our syncing agent (BkmxAgent) is now presented in modern fashion, via the macOS Notification Center, instead of the more reliable but ugly and very annoying old CFUserNotification dialog, which unconditionally splashed into the center of the screen like the Kool-Aid Man.
  • When exporting to Safari, now checks to see if there is one or more groups of folders at root or in Reading List with the same name, at least one of which is empty, and if so, aborts the export with a new Error 394842, which suggests how to fix the issue, instead of allowing the export to fail with Error 772030 because Safari rejects such folders.
  • Fixed a few more pathological cases which could cause churn when exporting to Chrome-ish browsers bookmarks whose scheme portions of their URLs are, in certain ways, invalid or non-standard in the eyes of Chrome.  (Chrome will either modify the scheme to make it valid and standard, for example by lowercasing uppercase alphabet characters, and/or prepending “http://” and percent-encoding disallowed characters; or in some cases just ignoring the bookmark.  For simplicity and robustness, our fix here is to simply not export any such bookmark, the same as we have for years not exported bookmarks other bookmarks which have URL characteristics previously found to not play well with Chrome.)
  • Fixed rare occurrence of the syncing agent (BkmxAgent) not launching or relaunching as required when syncing is ready.  Possibly this was only occuring in macOS 12.
