declutter - Read html content without clutter from your Emacs
declutter is a small Emacs addon that will help you with reading online content. It will remove all distractions and present you with readable html, straight inside your Emacs.
declutter is also able to read articles behind paywall - Finacial Times, WSJ and so on.
To install declutter, just copy
folder or any other location listed in Emacs
In your Emacs init file, put:
Then, in Emacs:
M-x declutter [RET]
and enter url you'd like to visit.
By default, declutter will open
*html* buffer and render cleaned
content in it. Actually, this is done by
shr.el so all default
shortcuts for it works here as well.
declutter adds another useful function -
declutter-under-point. When you read through the article and you'd
like to open url, you place cursor over link and you have two options:
- You can use
vkey) which will open article as is
- Or you can use
declutter-under-pointto load that url and render cleaned content in
declutter is using outline.com to render the
content and sometimes can fail with internal error (received from
outline.com). In that case, try url multiple times.
Also regardingy privacy, be aware that
outline.com can see what
you browse. I'm not affiliated with
outline.com in any way.
