Python tool for auto adding hacker news articles to instapaper.

Project Description
  1. Add keywords that interest you
  2. Run instayc
  3. Read the articles later on Instapaper

Warning: you might want to wait until articles are put in their own folder to prevent a lot of unwanted links being added to your instapaper account.


Here is how to use it:

$ instayc
Instapaper username: bob
Instapaper password:
$ instayc -a 'python, django, javascript, math, computer science'
$ instayc
14 article(s) were added to Instapaper


Use pip:

pip install instayc


easy_install instayc


  • articles that do not have a interest in the title are added sometimes
  • prevent duplicate interests in the config file
  • use the new Instapaper API and only store a token instead of user/pass
  • put articles in their own folder on Instapaper
