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!
