Exporting Data

There are a number of reasons why you might want to export poems or quotations from Poet's Corner.

As of v1.7 of Poet's Corner, you can use the Export Data function on the Settings Panel (tap the "gear" icon) to create an export file.

Export files can be saved with either the .poetry file type or the .json file type. The file contents are identical, regardless of the file type. However, the .poetry file type will be opened exclusively by Poet's Corner, while the .json file type can be opened by any application that understands JSON data.

Importing Data

Poet's Corner can open and process (properly formatted) files with the .poetry file extension.

Each poem and quotation in a .poetry file contains a unique identifier, which is used to prevent duplicate entries if you import the same items more than once.

The .poetry File Format

For techies only

A .poetry file is a simple JSON file with a custom file extension. The easiest way to understand the format is to examime an exported example. But we'll document the file here.
