I use tachiyomi on my phone. Is there something as good but for the desktop?
I use the mangadex website so I am curious as well.
I download straight from nyaa and use mcomix.
I've found this, but haven't tried it.
btw this fork allows you to fetch hentai
There's Hendroid on F-Droid if all you need is porn.
Why read on the desktop when you can get something like a Likebook Mars? It's a chinese 8'' e-reader that runs Android. e-ink+tachiyomi=best experience
I'll assume you're using GNU/Linux. I've tried the following:
* https://github.com/ahodesuka/ahoviewer which is not maintained anymore and it does not support for recursive sub-folders image checking, so most likely not as good as you want.
* https://github.com/phillipberndt/pqiv you need to add couple of configuration settings and it should be all good, one enabling natural sorting and the second one is remembering the last viewed image in the folder you started pqiv form. I haven't tried implementing the latter yet but I believe that it's doable, instead I used the interactive montage mode (a.k.a. "image grid"). Keep in mind that it can do recursive loading from directories!
Currently I'm on KDE and I found gwenviewer to be good too.
On a side note, if you're looking to download manga for desktop reading, considering looking it up on https://archive.org/details/manga_library, you're likely to find high quality versions there than on the million manga online reading websites.
Wow, thank you!
I don't know why this never occurred to me. Reading on my phone strains my eyes with the bright screen and small display (not to mention very limited battery life) but I think Kindle and Kobo are overpriced (I just need something that can read PDF and EPUB files!). I even thought of assembling my own e-book reader with a battery-powered Raspberry Pi. Somehow I didn't even realise there are commercial Android-based e-book readers. Thanks a lot!
I'm >>8 and I'd like to post a small update. I've been grabbing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_book_archive out of the manga library and opening them using Okular and it's really straightforward and simple. I'm enjoying it so far, maybe it serves you well as well. I don't read manga titles that are still being released so I can't help with that. I assume using a combination of xmllint(1) and curl(1) on https://mangakakalot.com/ should be enough, I wonder if there are RSS feeds for this kind of things though...
https://mangasee123.com/ and mangadex to fill the gaps.
I got tired of sites dying and taking my reading list & progress down with them so I'm writing https://sr.ht/~nhanb/pytaku/ . I mean, tachiyomi works mostly fine too (save a few empty pages here and there) but it's android-only.
>>10 I have a boox nova 2 and it's too small for some series, so imho if you're going to get an e-ink tablet for manga at least go for 10 inch (but at that point the prices get... unreasonable)
I download from nyaa and read with mcomix.
i'm using mangadex (usually) + HDoujin Downloader (not only for h doujins) to download whole manga and read them on an old iPad because i can't afford an e-reader.
As soon as I saw nhanb, I knew you were Viet.
