Pocket an, offline Read it later app, has been very popular and has recently made its way into firefox as a default application.
So Myself and @anandmoorthy have decided to start writing an alternative for the same.
We did expriment Wallabag, and it was too buggy and with my lack of knowledge in PHP (Wallabag is written in PHP), I have decided to use the following tech stack
- Base Language : Python
- Web Scraping : Scrapy, Beautiful Soup, (NLP do we need ?)
- API : flask or django (Prefer Flask)
- Database : MongoDB or Postgres (Mongo makes sense to me.)
- Client Apps : Kivy (kivy.org) (Android, iOS, Desktop etc)
Will share the repo url soon.
We are looking for help in terms of contribution in code and designing architecture of the app (thinking does it make sense to make it decentralized) and documentation obviously.
Would also be grealy helpful, if somebody can explain how to really go about writing code for a app like this .
