(Updated 2016-05-09, more robust than current top answer) If you just need to save a few playlists, you can just use my Javascript snippet below. This snippet can save every list as it is shown on the webpage, so it also works for the all songs/albums/artists library views. I've listed two other alternatives at the end of this answer.

Seeing that there's no convenient way of doing this provided by Google, I've created a tiny online app for export of your starred locations: http://gexport.somee.com/ It's very primitive, but it does the job. (credits to endolith for the idea of implementation) UPDATE: this app is no longer relevant, you can use Google Takeout to export your bookmarks as ...

As far as I am aware, there's no built in way to do this on Youtube. You could of course use the Youtube API to easily get all of your playlists in xml using the following: https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/[YOUR_USER_NAME]/playlists?v=2 Example: https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/oisinorion/playlists?v=2 That xml file will have the ...

Consider got-your-back which "is a command line tool that backs up and restores your Gmail account". You can invoke it like this: python gyb.py --email foo@bar.com --search "from:pip@pop.com" --local-folder "mail_from_pip" After completion you'll find all the emails matching the --search in the specified --local-folder, along with a sqlite database.

I am quite surprised by all the complicated answers implying some extra tools! Every email you receive has its address added to "All contacts" (as opposed to "My Contacts") in the Contacts part of Gmail. Export that one and you're done (or I missed something in your question).

I'm not sure that you can do this directly in Gmail. However, you could either selectively forward emails to an alternative account OR download your Gmail using POP3 to the Mozilla Thunderbird email client (which is available under Linux). If you are filtering more than a handful of emails it would be easier to download your emails en masse using POP3 and ...

This is not the most elegant way to accomplish what you ask, but here's a manual method that I just used to do it.
