JavaScript tool to unpaywall news sites


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if such a tool exists?

The fact that the article comes through the wire before Javascript comes and hides it behind paywall or login banners, means there should be some way to undo the nonsense.

Of course these sites are moving towards fixing this and not sending more than a teaser over the wire.  But to this day most sites are still sending full articles and relying on client side content blocking as silly as that is.

I'm just surprised not to have come across such a tool.  It's getting harder and harder to use aggregates since half the articles are linking to these types of sites
