How to read long comment threads efficiently on kindle?
#1  arooni 01-22-2020, 08:43 PM
I love the discussions on hacker news and reddit and other forums like this one but they can be quite long and I'd love to read them on my jailbroken Kindle Paperwhite v4. I've tried some export as epub extensions as well as saving to PDF and even after experimenting with the reflow options within KoReader, they leave something to be desired.
Is there a better way?

I don't want every article's comments just the ones I prefer. Right now I'm dropping it on a local folder on my computer then Syncthing kicks in and gets it to my Kindle. Open to suggestions. Thanks team!

PS: Just found for reddit; gonna give it a shot; but still looking for solutions.

You can also try to open these website directly from Kindle.
If you find it too small, you can try to play around with some browser settings like
<kindle:setting name="minimumFontSize" value="0"/>
in /var/local/mesquite/browser/config.xml (change this value from 0 up to 9)

However, after a reboot all setting will set to default, unless you change a squashfs content.
Details are given in this forum.

Try taking a pdf of the page, then optimizing the pdf with k2pdfopt.

The results can be very impressive, depending on source material. Easy to try and find how it works for you.

It is a very useful method. I can really make use of it.
