Kukuburi on your Kindle/nook/Sony Reader

I got a Sony Reader Pocket Edition (PRS-300) yesterday.  I was playing with importing RSS feeds using Calibre today and managed to whip up a quick and dirty Calibre recipe to convert one of my favorite webcomics into an ePub book.

Load up Calibre, and use the Fetch News menu. Create a new News Source from the dropdown menu.  Go into advanced mode and paste this code into your new Recipe: greenshot_2010-02-25_18-47-59greenshot_2010-02-25_18-48-19

class AdvancedUserRecipe1267141443(BasicNewsRecipe):

title = u'Kukuburi'

oldest_article = 30

max_articles_per_feed = 100

feeds = [(u'http://feeds.feedburner.com/kukuburi?format=xml', u'http://feeds.feedburner.com/kukuburi?format=xml')]

I have this set up to only hold the last 30 days, but you can edit it to your liking.  Save this recipe.  Now it’ll show up under “Custom” in your News Sources list.  You can schedule it like other RSS feeds.greenshot_2010-02-25_18-48-50   greenshot_2010-02-25_18-49-25

The end result looks pretty good on my little Sony Reader: IMG_2624
