    If only they can add RSS support and newsletter subscriptions backed by Firefox Relay in Pocket, it can actually become a whole lot more useful.

    If you need something like this today, try Omnivore[1]. Their RSS support is a bit wonky but very promising.

    I'm quite happy with Omnivore:

    It's open source, I can host it myself it I want to but the reference hosted version on is free and quite reliable. Dark mode, progressive webapp, native apps, full text search, Obsidian integration, Pocket migration.

    Compare that with instapaper: Terrible Android app that looks like Android apps from 2015, okayish iPad/iOS apps, quite expensive now, every interesting feature behind a paywall. I guess if you're into the minimalist aesthetic or if you've grown accustomed to it, sure, keep on using it. But it feels as if this product has been somewhat on extended life support and people would care a lot less if it wasn't run by Marco Arment.

  • Grimoire: Open-Source bookmark manager with extra features

    I used to use Pocket extensively until I realized it wasn't going anywhere with features. I have since moved to Omnivore [1] and I couldn't be happier.

    The devs are also ex-Pocket users and have worked hard to get feature parity and then some. There are mobile apps too for reading on the go (and work offline) which I use extensively when I am on flights. There is a graphql API and webhooks you can use for extending its functionality. Search could be a little better, but I use the labeling system which works well. I also use the logseq integration to keep a persistent log of articles I read on any given day.


  • How do you read large parts of a codebase and figure out what you're looking for?
    1 project | /r/learnjavascript | 6 Nov 2023
    I briefly tried Omnivore and it seems to be have a good system for scraping web articles, especially for downloading them into Obsidian as markdown. I want to isolate that and have my script that that I can feed URLs into and get the contents as markdown files. I tried looking at the repo to see how it works and at this index.js file since the folder is called "puppeteer-parse". I tried reading it line by line multiple times it feels like too much to keep in my head at one, it makes me wonder how SWEs work with large codebases. I wonder if there are tools or ways to make reading large code files faster or easier.

    This looks very nice, but self hosting requires reliance on google cloud.
