  • NPR Projects (Development)

    These are simple snippets of code I find useful to download NPR programs that I like. Within the command-line tools, I also include a GUI used for printing and displaying the text of articles to online periodicals (The New Yorker, The New York Times, etc.) that no longer have a print option to their articles.
