RSS Reader



  • Hi, is there a chanze to get a RSS reader in the sidebar? I would prefere to sync it with feedly ;)



  • I would expect it to be part of the Mail Client when that gets done. I don't expect either any time soon though.

    @Pesala:

    Define soon.

    They already have the mail button in the sidebar and have said they have already been working on email.

    Depending on whether they buy, partner with or build from scratch a mail backend, the runway to email could be very short or very long. If I didn't see it in the first six weeks, I would not be surprised, but if it took longer than that, given that they made much of its impending arrival in the rollout, I'd be really bummed. And six weeks is pretty "soon" as development cycles go. Further, as there are lots of good RSS extensions, I would fully expect them to roll out email before they finished building RSS into it. Those are just my ideas, though.

    My fond hope is that they have some whiz at email-backend-writing on the crew already, since Opera probably fired all of theirs, and they have been writing their own for the last year, and it's not far from release. The reason I say this is that only Opera's M2 ever had a robust and scalable database structure, and if Vivaldi borrowed email backend ideas from someone else, heavy email users will soon turn it on its head. And people who are not heavy email users don't NEED email built in.



  • Im one of the Users who wasn't really interested in the email build in, but i like rss reads and i have no good clent on pc.

    I don't use RSS. Never have. I've just read a number of reviews from users of various RSS extension on Chrome-based browsers that this or that RSS extension is "great" or "perfect." Hence, I figured there have to be good ones out there for general use.



  • RSS feature is one of the most wanted by me. There not really many extensions which give the possibility to use RSS feeds as fast as in opera 12.

    I see. Well, that's what Vivaldi is supposed to be all about - satisfying a wide range of use cases that the "big boy" browsers are ignoring.



  • https://www.g2reader.com/ is a pretty nice way to read RSS. But I can understand some people want it built in.



  • Hi.
    RSS reader (preferably similar to that in the old Opera) just has to be built in Vivaldi. If there are no such plans despite sincere willingness, it will not be my primary browser ever.
      Currently, I use Opera Developer and I'd happily use Vivaldi as default browser but it's still too early.



  • I've been using opera rss extension reader that work exactly like opera 12, so as soon as vivaldi make its extension available, all chrome extension should work on it as well. I don't think dev should waste time on their own rss reader just yet when a simple extension could provide us with all our rss need

    I would agree. If there is an "rss extension reader that works exactly like Opera 12," then work on an RSS at this early stage might be a misplaced priority. Getting extensions fully working, getting an email client, fixing some reliable site crashers - these are perhaps the most critical priorities.

    I know for someone who is an RSS addict (just as I am a bookmarks bar addict) , one has one's own priorities. The priorities which are the most broadly shared are those most likely to get attention.



  • Hello everybody!

    Guys, I ported the extension Reader RSS to Vivaldi (from Opera)
    Use of health!

    Installation is simple: download and drag the downloaded file to a page with a list of extensions.

    PS: is a good alternative to working
    PPS: Do not judge strictly :) and sorry for my english (translate translator)

    @cOAPerator Sorry, but a strange russian filehub with broken SSL is not usable for most of us.
    You should have forked at Github or Bitbucket. :(

    And what have you changed? I only see a incomplete patch of manifest.json.
    Please tell us.



  • What I do is use feedly.com/i/welcome in the web panel, it's very good!
