Show HN: Reader Mode, but Better

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on news.ycombinator.com

Our great sponsors
  • Klotho - AWS Cloud-aware infrastructure-from-code toolbox [NEW]
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • unclutter

    A modern reader mode and article library for your browser.

    It's possible for extensions to only get access when you activate it for a specific tab. If you want Unclutter to work this way you can manually set "Site access" to "On click" in the Chrome extension settings.

    The reason I enabled "all sites" by default is to make the automatic activation feature work (which used to be more powerful). Possibly this can be done with an optional all-sites permission now, I'll look into it: https://github.com/lindylearn/unclutter/issues/527

    Thanks for the feedback! Also, if you don't like something build the extension yourself or submit a PR ;)

  • I use the Bypass Paywalls extension [0] for this, and it works great with Unclutter.

  • Klotho

    AWS Cloud-aware infrastructure-from-code toolbox [NEW]. Build cloud backends with Infrastructure-from-Code (IfC), a revolutionary technique for generating and updating cloud infrastructure. Try IfC with AWS and Klotho now (Now open-source)

  • readability

    A standalone version of the readability lib

    Playing the devil's advocate: Why is Firefox Reader mode not good enough?

    And also please note that Mozilla has their algorithm in the open here: https://github.com/mozilla/readability

  • bypass-paywalls-chrome

    Bypass Paywalls web browser extension for Chrome and Firefox.

    Is this the same extension as https://github.com/iamadamdev/bypass-paywalls-chrome?

    I've been using the latter for years now too. It still doesn't work with hard paywalls like the ones on economist.com or wsj.com.
