Web services that don't work with SuttaCentral

This can be a place to collect website “services” that don’t work with SuttaCentral.net.

The basic idea with these services is that it “scrapes” the main content of the site and then does something with it.

Push to Kindle (also plugin)

What’s broken

Users should be able to convert a page to a kindle book and send it to their device. But the converted pages are blank.

Joplin Web Clipper

What’s broken

  • Users should be able to click “Clip complete page” and have the contents of the page copied to a new note in the desktop Joplin app. Note is created but empty.
  • “Clip simplified page” creates a note with the SC message It looks like you're using an unsupported browser.
  • Using "Clip Complete Page (HTML) (beta) puts the following text in the note: clipCompletePageHtmlBeta.pdf (55.8 KB) Tested with this page.
  • However if text is selected and “Clip selected text” is chosen, then the text gets added to the new note.
