Dear fedi, does anyone here know if there exists a gemini browser for my kobo ereader? Possibly in koreader?
I'm also looking for this. I asked on koreader git a while back but they said it was out of scope. Also I found someone who was building one but didn't see any update since.
out-of-scope? hmm strange..
I think it would be a great use case for an ereader.
I'm going to dig a bit further..
@woozong No browsers, but there are ways of converting gemini pages to epubs. A browser would be nice thouggh, I agree.
I think I've encountered such a conversion script before, but it seemed like to much friction..
@woozong It's not great to do all of your browsing that way. But I have a script that grabs the posts from my comitium feed every morning and converts them into an epub digest that I put on my kobo to read. I like it for reading the capsules I follow but I do the rest of my browsing on a computer.
I hope to have a way to browse on an eink device some day though.
Browsing web pages is/was possible on my old Kobo Glo, but a rather sluggish experience. Just wondering if I can do the same for Gemini pages that are converted to HTML. Have to try this.
I was thinking along the lines of downloading feeds/site updates when connected on wifi (for a list of sites), allowing to read them while offline... Don't now how feasible that is though.. gem-sites should be lightweight enough not to be too sluggish (but that's an assumption on my part). Need to look into Kobo hacking first :-)
@woozong @kelbot I used to run a newsboat RSS script to automatically download articles through Pocket to my Kobo when connected with WiFi. I think it should be possible with Gem pages with a HTML proxy. Without images in articles it should be fine. The sluggishness is also because I have a 10 year old Kobo. Newer models might be more performant.
