Running Wallabag on Terminal.Com

Oh, you never heard about Wallabag either. Wallabag is a self hostable application for saving webpages. Think of a self hostable version of Pocket or Readability run on your own servers. Wallabag has apps for Android and iOS, as well as a Chrome extension.

My favorite feature of Wallabag is the ability to save an article to epub to read later. There is even an option to save all, or those of a particular tab to a epub collection. The one feature that I wish it had was increasing text size.

Oh, you don't have your own server, or setting one up is above your pay grade. No worries, Wallabag is one of the terminal options at It was one of the easiest install I have ever done.

If you would like a "read it later" tool but have been nervous about having your data reside on a third party server, then Terminal Cloud might be an option.  Yes it is still in the cloud, but you have root access with all terminals.
