How to load Medium posts without all the "Medium stuff"

I love it when developers take things into their own hands to fix products and websites. Let me share today's edition of "Developers fix things":
Scribe improves Medium's reading experience. But what's wrong with Medium?
The main thing bugging me is that Medium will block and paywall articles at the end of each month because I reached my free allowance (you can work around it by opening the post in an incognito window, but yeah... 🤷♂️).
If these points are bugging you, replace
medium in a Medium blog post URL with
scribe and enjoy a lightweight reading experience. It's beautiful.
And the best thing, if you want to avoid opening Medium at all, Scribe also offers documentation on how to enable automatic browser redirects, which is delightful!
Sergej Brazdeikis pointed out that Scribe's service is probably illegal, and Medium will shut it down once they notice it. That could be, but I'll avoid Medium and will only consume the juicy content until then. 🤷♂️
Yes? Cool! You might want to check out Web Weekly for more WebDev shenanigans. The last edition went out 8 days ago.
