    the script itself is legal as a tool for private use, but taking and sharing a copyrighted content without permission (license) or not in fair use to public is illegal.

    Just toss it up on github or something. Even if it violates webnovel.com's terms, the code itself shouldn't be illegal as far as I know.

    Nice job! I've written something like this some time ago too. Not sure if mine even works anymore.

    GitHub username is MagnificentPako. The repo is called RoyalNim.

    (dammit. Wasn't active until now so I can't post links)

    It's illegal, but why would you care anyway?

    w0w! (✪ω✪) I really envy people who can do this kind of features/app. I'm not a tech savy so it's really amazing for me. Internet is bad here so I want to be able to save offline copies of novels I like. If you won't be able to share it in public, please can you message me the links? (≧∇≦)/

    I don't think it is illegal... If it is... then what about asia novel? or other e book websites?

    Doesn't Qidian already have offline reading?
    What is the difference?

    Share it now so that I can use again my kindle paperwhite. It's been useless since I got too lazy to convert webnovels into ebooks.

    edit:

    WebToEpub browser extension still works

    You can try search site-to-epub in github. That is script to generate epub from novel source. The output is good and the novel source is quite a lot

    Same here. I want the links too. @infinity Please PM me the links!!

    I like epub format more since the scrolling function in webnovel is so irritating. Plus the audio playback doesn't even allow you to listen and read the text at the same time. So frustrating.
