goosepaper is a utility that delivers a daily newspaper to your remarkable tablet. that's cute!
you can include RSS feeds, Twitter feeds, news articles, wikipedia articles-of-the-day, weather, and more. I read it when I wake up so that I can feel anxious without having to get my phone.
[New!] In response to feedback, I'm collecting anonymous survey responses. Do you want a goosepaper delivered but without requiring any code? Please let me know your thoughts!
By far the easiest way to get started with Goosepaper is to use Docker.
Write a config file to tell Goosepaper what news you want to read. An example is provided in
From the directory that has the config file in it, run the following:
docker run -it --rm -v $(pwd):/goosepaper/mount j6k4m8/goosepaper goosepaper -c mount/example-config.json -o mount/Goosepaper.pdf
example-config.json is the name of the config file to use).
If you want to both generate the PDF as well as upload it to your reMarkable tablet, you can pass the
--upload flag to the docker command above. You must additionally mount your
docker run -it --rm \ -v $(pwd):/goosepaper/mount \ -v $HOME/.rmapy:/root/.rmapy \ j6k4m8/goosepaper \ goosepaper -c mount/example-config.json -o mount/Goosepaper.pdf --upload
Otherwise, you can now email this PDF to your tablet, perhaps using ReMailable.
this tool uses
weasyprint to generate PDFs. You can install all of the python libraries you need with
pip3 install -r ./requirements.txt from this repo, but you may need these prerequisites before getting started.
more details here.
brew install cairo pango gdk-pixbuf libffi
sudo apt-get install build-essential python3-dev python3-pip python3-setuptools python3-wheel python3-cffi libcairo2 libpango-1.0-0 libpangocairo-1.0-0 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 libffi-dev shared-mime-info
From inside the goosepaper repo,
pip3 install -e .
You can customize your goosepaper by editing
config.json. (More instructions, and customization tools, all coming soon!)
goosepaper --config myconfig.json --output mypaper.pdf
If you don't pass an output flag, one will be generated based upon the time of generation. You DO need to pass a config file for now.
An example config file is included here: example-config.json.

Do you have another kind of tablet? You may generate a print-ready PDF which you can use on another kind of robot as well! Just remove the last line of
yes! you may do anything that you find to be fun and welcoming :)
Check out the
styles.Styles enum in the goosepaper library. You will find there what you seek.
I do not think so, but it is a good question!
yes you may! you can add a list of usernames to the feed generator and it will make a print-ready version of twitter. this is helpful for when you are on twitter on your laptop but wish you had Other Twitter as well, in print form.
