A lightweight screen-scraper to generate pdf renderings of chapters / novels from royalroadl.com.
NOTE: this is just a basic screen-scraper. If there are significant changes to RRL's DOM then this will break. Should be pretty simple to fix though.
There are a lot of niceties that could be implemented. Additional query parameters for formatting, splitting up the pdfs into multiple files, caching, etc. However this is more or less just a quick, dirty, and lightweight way to save some novels offline.
npm install -g rrl-scraper
The CLI should now be accessible via command
For general usage run command
Both id's can be found in RRL's url.
