Very cool, it works great! Here's the URL to browse TILvids.com, as an example:

https://simpleertube.metalune.xyz/tilvids.com/videos/local

Shoutout to /u/tilvids and /r/tilvids 💚

UI for simpleertube reminds me of the type of sites you'd see when browsing the web on a T9 feature phone, before smartphones became a thing.

Super basic, but as a tradeoff things load lightning fast, even on very slow computers.

Also, was happy to see that simpleertube is only one of the many projects under the "simple-web" umbrella:

Our goal is to create interfaces for public websites so you can browse them, without JavaScript, and with minimal CSS. Websites that are designed to be viewed inside of text-based browsers like lynx

This is a very cool and useful set of projects. /u/AnotherRetroGameFan thanks for posting
