Wallabag on Kobo readers?

Hi!

Has anyone succeeded in running Wallabag on Kobo readers here? I know that they have an Android app that some have successfully been able to run on Android-based e-readers (e.g. Sony). Yet from what I understand, the Kobo is *not* based on Android but its own custom Linux distribution.

There has been rumors that Wallabag could work in KOreader, but I am not sure how that would work. A plugin maybe? That certainly looks promising and probably better than rolling a whole custom app...

I know about the hack to sync with Calibre but frankly, I'm really tired of dealing with this: my "toread list" generates an ePUB of about 1000 pages, and calibre needs to regenerate all of that from scratch every time, which takes around 10 minutes - it's horrible!

Anyone has pointers or wants to start working on this?

It seems that one way this could work with koreader here would be for wallabag to implement OPDS...
