Alternatives to Google Cloud Print, due to close Dec 2020.

Posted 25th Nov
I've read that Google Cloud Print is due to end next December.

Are there any similar free services available, or how hard is it to setup a Pi print server you could access from anywhere?

I've got an HP Envy to which I can email documents, but that method is primitive and doesn't let you select B&W/colour/duplex/page range as Google Cloud Print does.

I thought the hp smart print app let you do all of the above, although I have to be honest and state that I haven't used it for a while.

It won't work if away from the printer's LAN (IIRC) so you can't print from anywhere - at least not with my Envy model.
Chrome OS's native print function
Could you not just setup PIVPN at home on your network and print as if you are within your own network normally?
