One Email to Read Them All

This week’s project, Fetch Text, combines two of my favorite things, email & reading, in one really cool hack.

With Andy Jiang’s node app, you can read almost anything via email. Just forward the URL to a special email address ([email protected]) and it’ll reply back with the plaintext content.

For example, you can take a story from last week’s Das Brunch newsletter, send the URL to Fetch Text, and read it offline / ad-free as an email:

Fetch Text won’t replace Instapaper / Pocket, but it will let you focus on reading without any signups, accounts, or extra apps. #emailiseverything
