Web clipper in the client

Idea

With Web Clipper plug-ins not working in Safari 13 and various issues with it not working correctly in Safari and Chrome on iOS devices (bets or not), please integrate a way to use Web Clipper in the actual client by pasting a URL into a new note. 
 

By implementing it in the actual client, users will be able to use this important feature regardless if plugins are broken or if the web page isn’t clipping correctly.

Is that all you need, the url?

Regarding Safari on a Mac.  

  • This is do-able using applescript
  • I save the web page in web-archive format and screenshots

No, I want to have the page clipped on at least the Simplified article. 
 

Other workarounds have me opening links in Chrome to clip but usually I won’t do it because Chrome isn’t integrated with my MBP features and sucks battery really bad. Sometimes I will make a PDF of the page but I prefer the simplified article format much more. 
 

Is there an Apple Script to do something like make a Simplified Article web clip?

No, Simplified Article is a a web-clipper feature; the best I can do with applescript is capture the web page

Can you use with AppleScript the reader view of the page if available ?

Not specifically, but the command-shift-R keystrokes can be triggered for Reader View.

Good thinking; Reader view is somewhat similar to Simplified Article

So is there a way to put that into EN with the reader view and AppleScript.

This would be print-to-pdf; my preference is still web archive format

One point about web clipping from the client with a url
