Hello Edward,

I got inspired by Scribe and created my own medium.com proxy called LibMedium(source code(AGPL)). I have a userscript that rewrites medium.com URLs to point to my LibMedium instance, would this be something Scribe could use?

It works by extracting post ID from the URL and rewriting the URL to point to /utils/post/{postID}, which will redirect the user to the post page. The redirecting endpoint is a cheap hack to accommodate medium's custom subdomain.

Thanks for this realaravinth 😃 I'll probably do something similar to this, but I want to build it into the crystal app so I can take advantage of processing that all server-side. I appreciate that there's code I can reference.

As an aside, LibMedium looks so cool! I'd love to chat with you about it sometime.
