Medium posts to Speech.

A Python library for lazy people (like myself), who never finds time to read daily Medium posts and prefer to listen to them instead. It convert medium post to markdown using a Docker container/image then uses gTTs to interface with Google Translate's text-to-speech API which converts text to spoken MP3 files, thereafter plays the generated mp3 files with cvlc assuming it is installed.

Apt Requirements

You will need to install a few dependencies before you continue:

sudo apt install -y docker-ce mpg123 python3.6 python3.6-dev vlc

python3 -m pip install -U medium-speech

                           [--file MARKDOWN_FILE]
