Last two days I've been hacking on a small Emacs mode called declutter and this will be the first version announcement.
declutter and why?
I often use Emacs to read long, online articles, which gives me plenty of options - I can save text for offline reading, I can read content with my favorite color and terminal setup, I have my shortcuts for fast navigation and so on.
However, modern sites are using more and more client-side rendering which doesn't play well with EWW. Also, there is a recent trend I'm not really fan of, and that is putting paywall on anything worth of reading.
So, someone smart I'm not affiliated with, created outline.com service, which is able to solve above problems. At least most of it, which is perfectly fine with me. And that service is free to use, of course.
declutter, in short, will use
outline.com to get readable html content, including paywall protected sites straight from Emacs. Then it will render it in readable form in separate buffer.
So, I'm inviting you to try it, test it and let me know for your comments. And please report if something breaks.
