    Overall if you want a DIY e-reader, your best bet is to pick a low power board that supports Linux, run the most barebones system you can on it, and reduce its power usage by aggressive means (underclocking, undervolting, "deep sleep" by turning it off after X minutes of inactivity). Then for the eink part, use a barebones desktop environment, combined with a window manager meant for eink, such as epd-wm. After that, slap an ebook reader software like Foliate on top, and you're good to go.

    I'd agree. I think a lot of single device re-purposing can be useful to others, but a development platform typically indicates a more general purpose. Something like https://github.com/dj311/epd-wm but a lot of these are only for specific chips. This one seems to have more support: https://github.com/vroland/epdiy
