http://cloud9-sdk.readme.io/v0.1/docs/writing-tests doesn't work in pocket. Basically, it's over-engineered angularjs stuff, and in pocket, you just get a weird json blob instead of the text.

PS: our reader view is better in that it shows the real document after the json garbage

Hey Axel,

Pocket can save any page, even non-article content. If it's not an article, we show the normal/complete web-page instead. It looks like in this particular case the page isn't being parsed correctly and is showing an incomplete Article View. In that case, the user still has the option to switch to the original web page.

That said, I flagged this domain with our parser team and they'll make an update to resolve. If you see any other domains where you have issues, please just drop us a line. Thanks!

As filed, invalid -- as nate says in comment 2 you should be able to save any web page.

Legit issue about the JSON blob being shown, and sounds like that will be tracked by Pocket separately.
