  • To anyone who's ever worked on a game wiki: thank you | 2021-09-26
    Highly recommend the Stylus Extension, which has a lot of user-created themes that improve sites. This one does pretty well to make Fandom sites usable (although it has issues with colors that make some pages/links absolutely unreadable, but that's a matter of wiki style clashing with user style).
  • Will there be customizable backrounds?
  • Heya, how do I give VGCats archive a dark background? | 2021-09-09
    You're referring to the browser add-on Stylus. This sub is about digital pens, which are commonly called "styluses".
  • Google search page with windows...can I make it always just show the classic Google logo? (Instead of whatever the latest thing is.) | 2021-09-05
  • The most underused browser feature | 2021-08-25
    > (The end user should apply their own CSS if wanted;

    I still remember the time when user styles were a first class feature built into all browsers. Hell, that 'C' in CSS, "Cascading", was always there to allow styles to enhance/override prior styles, including - at the top-level - to allow the user to override website's styling. Back before web designers ruined everything by making every web page into its own special snowflake, people thought users would have one-two default CSS sheets to choose from and apply to any webpage, the way we today think about "dark mode".

    These days, we have to resort to using browser extensions. A well-known one is Stylus [0][1]. In a way, it's much better than old built-in user styles. But then, it's not built in.


    [0] -

    [1] - Mind the name, it's "Stylus", not "Stylish" - the latter used to be popular, but then it sold out and become another peace of surveillance capitalism detritus. Stylus is a GPLv3 fork of Stylish with data collection removed.

  • Yeah, I might get the hang of removing the focus rings on edge now but where should I input the code and is there any additional codes I should 'inject' as well? | 2021-08-19
    Stylus add-on for Chrome works fine in Edge. Set that as a global style.
  • Automatically scale .gifv urls to fit the full window? | 2021-08-09
  • Wondering about some pinephone uses | 2021-08-09
    What about using Stylus on Firefox ?
  • Does anyone know how to change this back to the old icon? This one is super distracting, and I honestly find it quite ugly. | 2021-07-22
    if you use pc or laptop you can add a styleseet for youtube, use this extension called stylus - (it's open source) , then you can add custom css , so you them make a style sheet for and add this css .ytp-doubletap-static-circle { display: none !important; } this will hide the circle.

  • Does anyone else have a Linux laptop?
  • Remarkable starts implementing subscription plans for its cloud features | 2021-10-12
    It's a great time to get off their cloud using libre third-party tools.

  • Dear Remarkable: I'm done.
  • I made this. You can have one too! (Link in comments) | 2021-10-05
    Awesome! Is there a repository that aggregates a bunch of cool framework community repos? Similar to this for remarkable
  • Onyx using recent "anti-China movement" as excuse to withold Linux kernel source code | 2021-10-01
    Get a remarkable instead, it’s completely “hackable”:
  • I bricked then recovered my reMarkable 2 | 2021-09-27
    I have a rM2 that I've never connected to their reMarkable Cloud and I'm pretty happy with it; you can get the screen-sharing etc via other software. Bunch of options here:
  • Selective Cloud Sync?
    There are many programs you may find useful in the Awesome reMarkable list. Beyond the desktop/GUI apps listed there (maybe try reMy for rsync synchronization), check out ddvk/rmfakecloud; it will let you host your own cloud, but requires some know-how.
  • Command line tool to convert page to png or pdf on the device, or from a third party?
    I've looked around too, but couldn't find any thirdparty tool for page(or book)-to-png conversion either.
  • Sharing notebook with another Rm2
    There are other tools listed in the Awesome reMarkable list (also in this subreddit's sidebar) that can help you out, but the quality of documentation is variable and most of these require some effort and knowledge to set up and use.
  • The PineNote is an e-ink notebook that runs Linux | 2021-08-30
    And they give root access to the device along with GPL compliance statements, allowing for a flourishing developer community that creates tons of useful programs that can run on the embedded device. See for example for a list.
