<username> is your HN username.
This script depends on
requestspackages, which should be installed by default on most systems. If not, install them like so:

Run the script and enter your HN login credentials.
$ python export_links.py Enter your HN account details: Username: amjd Password: [password will be hidden]
After all the links are processed, you will be asked to enter an output file name. Use any name with the extension

links.json. The output file will be saved in the appropriate format.
P.S.: Your username and password are 100% safe and are sent over HTTPS. You can study the source code of this small script to verify that.
