Script or hack to show PDF from /YYYY/MM/DD/*.pdf URL?
May 15, 2014 12:58 PM Subscribe
I just noticed that the NYT offers a PDF version of its print front page, which I'd like to be able to access without going through the extra clicks on the website. The file always has the same name as is located in a simple nested date format — but I have no idea how to script something to replace that every day in a new tab or add it to Rainmeter or the like. Any suggestions?

Here's the current URL:
If I could put together a bookmarklet or some kind of scripted grab that would load up today's version of that or put it in a local folder, that would be wonderful. (I can't make rainmeter show a PDF)
In case you can't tell, I'm pretty inexperienced in code, but thought this would be a good place to get some practical recommendations for where to start on a small thing like this.
