Decided to pluck at one of my open source projects on the weekend. The latest idea was to use the Google Drive API to let users load up their comic book files (cbr/cbz/cbt) into kthoom (a comic book reader).

This should help those users storing their comic books on Google Drive to be able to access them on Chromebooks. Haven’t tried it on a tablet yet – I wonder if that works…

I’m always accepting patches if someone wants to write the equivalent code for Microsoft OneDrive.

    Works on a tablet! Now I realize that I need two tap targets though (one for paging forward and one for paging backwards)

    I’ve just found kthoom and am really impressed with it! I have a Samsung xe303c12-a01ca chromebook and was wondering if there’s a way to make kthoom work offline?

    I tried saving the page as .mhtml which clearly didn’t work, I tried making a local clone but crosh wouldn’t accept the ‘shell’ command.

    I know nothing about programming, but how much work would it take to turn kthoom into an app?

    Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Charles

    Hi Charles – it should be possible to turn kthoom into a Chrome app to put onto the web store but I haven’t investigated doing that yet, sorry :-/
