After I decided to give KOReader another try, I knew that I needed some way of getting news articles onto my Kobo. The methods that KOReader supports are RSS feeds, Send2Ebook, and Wallabag. I investigated each of these methods at least briefly.
I ruled out Send2Ebook because it involves the client app sending your documents to an FTP server, and I’m not willing to run an FTP server in the year 2019 CE.
Gray Area responded to my Kobo post, pointing out, among other things, that you can actually save settings application-wide in KOReader, and not only for a particular book. That motivated me to give it another try, mainly for the sake of better font rendering, and hypenation (the lack of hyphenation in Nickel drives me batty).
So far, so good. I’ve got the defaults the way I want them now.
I mitigated the issue of Calibre making it hard to browse books in KOReader by configuring Calibre to not use subdirectories when sending books to the Kobo.
This little note is both a continuation of my ROOPHLOCH post, and a response to a pair of phlog entries: Ode to my Ebook Reader from Lambda Lab, and Bubbles and Baubles from Gray Area. Note: these are both on gopher; if your web browser does not support gopher, install the Overbite extension (Firefox or Chrome) or go to the Floodgap Gopher proxy and paste the URLs.
Like both phloggers, I have a Kobo e-reader.
