@davidnye: The username and password were not used int he old recipe either. The NYT uses a captcha at login even with valid usernames and passwords.

@bobbysteel: Because I have no interest in implementing/maintaining it, and it creates extremely large downloads.

I saw you caught the class "supported-by" that added some cruft to articles. Thanks! There's just one more class at the moment that I've found, "accessibility-ad-header visually-hidden", that also adds cruft to each article (typically the word "Advertisement" to each article, around the fifth paragraph). I used this line in my own recipe, which does the job:

Quote:
classes('accessibility-ad-header visually-hidden'),
A side question -- I'm still curious about replacing hyperlinks in the recipe with plain old text, a change which I gather is not desirable for the upstream recipe in Calibre. I've been trying to implement it in the version of the recipe that I run, and from what I've seen on this forum and in other recipes, this bit of code is instrumental in removing hyperlinks:

Quote:
def preprocess_html(self, soup):
for alink in soup.findAll('a'):
if alink.string is not None:
tstr = alink.string
alink.replaceWith(tstr)
return soup
I've tried it everywhere in the NYT recipe, but wherever I put it, it seems to have no effect. Can anyone tell me if there's something I'm missing -- is there a place I'm supposed to put it, or an extra bit of code that it hooks into, or something special about the structure of this recipe that requires something different? Thanks.

You are probably indenting it incorrectly. The method needs to be indented at four spaces to be considered a part of the class. But probably easier to just add

remove_attributes = ['href']

Setting is_web_edition=False in The New York Times recipe

I run a headless linux server that downloads my New York Times so I can read it on my Kindle. Running /usr/bin/xvfb-run /opt/calibre/ebook-convert "The New York Times.recipe" with options brings it in.

I would prefer to get "Today's Paper" rather than the web edition. Yet, when I add "--is_web_edition=False" to my command, I get en ebook-convert error telling me there's no such option.

Years ago, when I installed Calibre at the command line, it would include a recipes directory. But now, it appears that it always downloads the current version of the recipe. Usually, this is great. However, it also means I can't just enter the recipe file and set "is_web_edition" to False.

Is there a way I can pass this value from the command line? If not, how can I download the current version of the recipe and set it up such that it works from the command line? Or is there a different recipe for getting "Today's Paper?"

Thanks in advance.

I should note that when it crashed before with "is_web_edition = False", it crashed within seconds.

I don't know why mspark and I would get two separate outcomes.

1) You dont need xvfb-run
2) calibre still includes a recipe directory (it's zipped up as builtin_recipes.zip) and you can specify recipe files directly by path to the recipe file instead of using a title, in which case no downloading of recipes happens
