OPDS support ereader
#1  tknx 07-10-2020, 02:27 PM
Looking for a dedicated book ereader. I had a Kindle PW, but I got tired of having to go through hoops to access my Calibre library, so I'd like one that directly supports OPDS.

So required:
2. Good screen

Nice to have:
1. Decent quality backlight
2. Physical buttons

Budget - as cheap as possible.

Just a thought, why not use the Kindle’s experimental browser to download ebooks from Calibre server?

That’s what I do when I’m feeling too lazy to get up and go to the computer except I use COPS instead of Calibre’s built-in server to serve files to the Kindle.

Mind, if you’re PW is jailbroken, KOReader provides OPDS support.

You can install KOReader on a Kobo Libra H2O and get OPDS that way. That would give you all 4 of your features, assuming you mean front light, not back light. And you wouldn't have to go through the hassles of jailbreaking a Kindle. It's easy to install KOReader on Kobo devices thanks to the work of the devs here.
