  • Ask HN: Best Open E-Reader?
    2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 20 Apr 2024
    Kobos[1] and Pocketbooks[2] are a lot more open than Kindles. AFAIK you can transfer .epub files into both devices and these epubs are perfectly readable via the stock OS. If for some reason you find the stock proprietary OS lacking, you can install an open source one like KOreader [3] or Plato[4]

    Of course you want a good way of organizing epubs pdfs mobi, and like has already been mentioned Calibre[5] is a great option.

    Oh man I absolutely love the work that you guys do. I'm actually in the process of learning Ebook production using the 'Step by Step' guide on your website. I'm essentially learning it all from scratch as I have little to no programming/SWE experience (I learned a bit of Lua because of KOReader[1]) but the technical side of ebook production has always fascinated me enough to keep learning.

  • Wear OS "Hybrid" design has two OSes, two CPUs, "100 hour" battery life

    Ha! I feel similarly, if not as eloquently.

    Installed https://github.com/koreader/koreader on mine + enabled SSH server.

    I read that KOreader is unstable on the Libra 2[0], so I haven’t installed it yet even though I would like to. What has been your experience running it?

    You can easily modify it (like adding KOReader).
  • Conversion from epub to kepub, and related Calibre use
    5 projects | /r/kobo | 5 Dec 2023
    I'm using Kobo Clara 2E (6" screen size), and it is unpleasant to read PDF and CBZ files (comic/manga) since Kobo only provides zoom and orientation mode. I installed KOReader on my Kobo. It has more setup to display those files way better. The views of PDF in KOReader and Comic in Koreader. I read Epub files in Koreader to maintain its original format.
  • Should I buy a kobo libra 2 or carla 2e for manga
    1 project | /r/kobo | 29 Nov 2023
    I installed KOReader on my Kobo Clara 2E. KOReader is a document viewer to read PDFs and manga/comics. KOReader has more setup to display fixed-layout format in a way that is better than the native Kobo display (Kobo stock).
  • Calibre – New in Calibre 7.0
    11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 18 Nov 2023
    It doesn't try to solve the same use cases that Calibre does, but I built an open source (EPUB only) manager / reader / statistics tracker called AnthoLume [0]. It mostly stemmed from me reading in KOReader [1] on my Kindle, and not having the ability to sync the progress to my iPhone / iPad.

    It's got metadata matching, support for multiple users, and statistics tracking which allows me to have a "Leaderboard" that shows how fast you read (words per minute). Fun competition between my wife and I (that I'm 100% losing). It's a Progressive Web App and utilizes a Service Worker to support 100% offline reading as well.

    There's a demo server [2] (creds are "demo" for both user & pass).
