How to export Tumblr followings (who you follow on Tumblr)

Exporting who you follow on Tumblr. It’s a dream many of us have.

If you’re wondering why you’d want to do this, I will not be the one to take your innocence.

Two ways I’ve tested TO COMPLETION. 

1) THROUGH YOUR BROWSER WITH OPML 

How 

While logged in, go to: http://www.tumblr.com/following.opml 

Boom, everybody you’re following starts downloading from your browser in a really easy to parse file.(Unless you follow a lot of people. Keep reading.) 

Pros: Simple, fast, you don’t have to install anything.
Cons: If you follow a lot of people, this dies/breaks. 

2) WITH A PYTHON SCRIPT CALLED TUMBLRFOLLOWS

You do NOT need to know how to program to do this, but you do need to be comfortable on the command-line and installing packages. 

This scripts successfully exported thousands of followings for me, when the OPML method could not. 

How

Go to https://github.com/RetroRodent/tumblrfollows and grab the scripts. There are a few Python dependencies you’ll have to install, but they are clearly listed in the readme. Also explained in the readme is the fact that you’ll have to register the app with Tumblr to run it. This was the first time in a long time I registered an app with Tumblr: just a heads up- it’s less helpful than Twitter’s process, but everything you need is there + self-serve. 

Read the Tumblrfollows readme. Read. The. Read. Me. #readit #noskimzone

Pros: Can export followings + followers. Can handle thousands of results.
Cons: Set-up more complex than the OPML method. If it acts buggy, may be hard to tell the difference between your mistake + Tumblr’s.
