Websites on the Zaurus

A few days ago, I wrote about iSiloWeb not being available for the Zaurus, and suggested that Opie-Reader now supports PML, and it wouldn’t be too hard to write something that grabbed a whole website and converted it to PML, ready for reading on the Zaurus. So, this afternoon, I sat down and wrote such a script. But it didn’t work. My lovely PML document didn’t seem to get rendered with hyperlinks and whatnot. I was discouraged, frankly. Then I noticed that Opie-Reader also supports documents in Plucker format. Pow. That’s all you need. plucker-build http://URL and then sync the resultant pdb file to your Zaurus. Blimey. So I can now snarf whole websites and read tham on the Z. Yay!

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
