Feeder.mobi is a simple web service built upon WordPress & BuddyPress, that lets you subscribe to RSS / Atom feeds and have them sent daily / weekly to your Amazon Kindle device as a
mobi EPUB file.
No Ads, No Tracking and No Fees!
🌇 Screensaver & photo frames
I just added a small feature for converting an image to Kindle Screensaver friendly png.
🤯 Missing information about whitelisting
One of our users notified me of an error on the settings page. The whole section on how to whitelist the delivery e-mail address in your Amazon settings was missing.
📮 Updating Email Delivery Service
After new years eve I started to notice that all mails to my Kindle suddenly required me to manually accept every delivery by a two-factor authentication by mail.
To wrestle this I decided to change our email delivery service to a self hosted mailcow setup. This way we can automate the required authentication.
But as soon as I did switch to the new email service the two-factor-requirement was removed for my @kindle.com. Well, it solved the problem but made it impossible for me to automate the authentication.
So if anyone of you notice any problems receiving updates from feeder.mobi please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org or by creating an issue in the Github repo.
🏞 Small update for images
I recently deployed an update for including images from the feeds in the mobi books. To keep the file sizes small all images are downloaded to the server, scaled down to match the Kindle Paperwhite screen resolution and finally heavy dithered in black and white.
