Running Coggle OPML Importer

To use the Coggle API you need a Client ID, and a Client Secret – which Coggle uses to identify requests to the applications that made them.

A new Client ID and Client Secret can be created at The redirect URL should be the domain (and optionally port) where you will host the application (for example, localhost or localhost:5000 for testing) followed by /auth/coggle/callback, which is the Coggle oauth authentication callback route of the app.

This ID and secret pair needs to be provided as environment variables when you run the app. If they are missing the app will refuse to start.
