Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is it possible to export a list or dump of questions that I have favourited from a site?

I've been busy going through the site and along the way I've seen things and thought, "wow, what a good question that is!" And I have duly favourited it.

However, when it comes to finding something from my favourites (starred questions), I have to go through my profile, switch tabs, blah blah blah.

It'd be nice, if it were possible, to extract those favorite questions in terms of their raw data so I can archive them without having to find them in the creative commons data dump that Stack Exchange provides.

I'm sure I heard mention of an API around here somewhere.

Should be able to do it with this request:

/users/{id}/favorites

You'll find all you want and more on the stackapps website, which discusses the api, and probably has exactly what you need. Chances are someone already has a utility to do that for you.

Example: http://api.stackoverflow.com/1.0/users/2/favorites

If the user has more than 30 favorites, then you can pass "page" parameter to view more pages, like: http://api.stackoverflow.com/1.0/users/2/favorites?page=2

You can also pass pagesize parameter to specify the number of results per page (Default: 30).
