Paperwrite is a Meteor app that brings distraction-free writing to the Kindle.

This fork is based on Shubhro Saha's "typewriter". It adds a visible cursor, and removes the separate backup process in favour of a (rather hacky) continuous write into text files on the server.

  • Set PAPERWRITE_SAVE_PATH to a folder where you want the text files to be saved
  • Install Node and Meteor
  • cd meteor-app && meteor
  • Open localhost:3000/?editor in your computer's web browser
  • Open [your computer's IP address]:3000 in your Kindle's browser

Click on the computer web app's top left corner to start typing. What you type there will now instantly appear on the Kindle.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
