This is pretty nice! Might give their service a spin, I'm not sure my webhost would be happy with me running something like this in the background. Mostly because they don't want you to use their spacing for filesharing type activities where you're not showcasing an actual site.

@Jessica

I do not think that this would be problem with your web hosting. They generally have an issue when there is huge traffic going on.

If you encounter issues, please give us feedback, we don't have much users using wallabag on e-reader, I don't know at all how it displays.

I just tried it on my Paperwhite. It isn't that bad, I just don't see the point since we can use the "Send to Kindle" feature on our devices. The "Courgette" theme works decent on the eink display though. Would be easy enough to adapt for our screens too.

I'll play around with that idea.

But it's nice. I love the tagging feature, and I love the ePub export (for my other devices, not the Kindle, heh).

Jessica I am glad that you had decent experience with it.

I mainly use it to store the articles that I want to save for later or the ones that I want to archive . Then I turn them into epubs in Wallabag(it exports epub) and read them in my ereader(kobo). This works great. However I did not use my readers browser to browse the Wallabag pages.

tcit,

One thing that would be great it to be able to export multiple articles as epubs in one go. At the moment it is kind of cumbersome to do one by one.

I'm saving articles via the web app and using the RSS feed with Feedly and reading them with Reeder (see my attachment).

The RSS feed retrieval is kinda slow. Any way I could speed that up?

@Jessica Lares : I have in mind to use this service to provide the Send to Kindle Service.
For Kindle Fire (based an Android) we now have our app in their store. Developing an app for reading-only Kindle devices doesn't seems easy.
About the RSS feed being slow, this depends on the server wallabag is installed on. It may be slow because all images are downloaded (even though a bug doesn't make them show right now if you use the official app). Of course, the more you have articles, the more it will be slow to load, so I advise you to use the RSS feeds for categories and tags if you can use them to fit your needs.

We have started again to work on an API for wallabag, and then we will be able to download a batch of articles at a time in the app, it should work better.

@exachillus : It is possible to export as epub more than one article at once :
* from a tag (see at the bottom of a tag page)
* from a category
* from a search
* all of your articles (see in config section)

Thank you for your returns.

Here is an area that can improve Wallabag usability across different mediums.


it would be nice if the meta data in the epubs are written out correctly. For example when I import them into Calibre they all say wallabag article by wallabag which is not correct. The title of the article should be embedded in the epub properly for example.

@exachillus : Yup, totally right, fixing this right now. Is there any other metadata fields than the title that should be modified when producing an epub for a single article ? Maybe Author could be filled with the domain name.
We also plan to get more metadata from articles, see https://github.com/wallabag/wallabag/issues/629 for some informations.

@all : I've started to work on the SendToKindle functionality. See https://github.com/wallabag/wallabag/issues/770 At first we only may propose mobi export, I guess this would be a good start.

thanks for the follow up.

I think that the tags could be used as series or tags. The author could be very helpful. The cover image can be a nice default image with the title embedded.


Also is it possible that locally cached images do not make to epubs? I am missing images in epubs after I started caching them in the wallabag server locally.

thanks

Ideally also it would be nice if Wallabag has a backend in Koreader Check it out please, it is an opensource reader that has Kindle, Kobo and Android support. They have couple syncing backends.

https://github.com/koreader/koreader

You can run Koreader without an ebook device.

Seen this, working on it right now.

As for the ideas for cover, I put this some place and will work on it later.

Finally, thanks for the KoReader discovery.
