RSS and Atom Reader



  • See Newsfox: essentially M2 or Smart RSS functionality with middle click on article list to open in new tab (or enter to open all selected in new tabs)



  • I'd would like one with images like brief



  • Also, to be able to open in background tab. The biggest issue I have with separate RSS readers is losing focus on the reader with every tab I open. My workflow is to open a lot of tabs from my RSS feeds first and then go read them. That means I'm constantly clicking back and forth from the reader to the browser and back.



  • I'm guessing this will be part of the integrated mail client. But if it won't (of if that's too far out), I could live with an RSS panel with dynamic settings in the sidebar (and an accompanying symbol in the address bar automatically recognizing feeds so I only need to click to add them, like old Opera).



  • I liked M2's 3-column layout.

    Having used M2's integration of both mail and RSS, I would much prefer to keep the mail and feeds separate.

    A side panel would be nice, for example, to list feed items, when clicked on they open the feed item in a new tab. (Ideally, each subsequent click of a panel feed item opens the full feed item in this same tab , without spawning tons of new ones).

    For my needs, I don't really care about seeing a list of subscribed feeds, so 2 columns is enough.

    @lonm Yes, a dedicated panel type this extension RSS Feed Reader would be perfect for my use.

    There a lot sites that uses the RSS to promote their articles and It would follow them better. Mainly the Vivaldi blogs.



  • Is it planned to sync these aswell or that something like Feedbin can be integrated? Otherwise this won't be useful for me.

    @mau That hasn't been discussed. We'll have to wait and see.



  • well, I'd love to have TT-RSS integration, but since it natively doesn't support my workflow anyway it wouldn't be especially useful...

    if we get complete newsfox workflow I can give up sync with no complains



  • All I need from any browser-integrated RSS functionality is that when I navigate to an URL such as https://vivaldi.com/feed/ the browser renders it in that tab as something remotely resembling a webpage (e.g., like Firefox) instead of spewing out source code like Vivaldi. Can I have that?

    If it were a panel, I could create folders (like bookmarks) to organize my feeds.



  • The latest snapshots have stuff™ in them showing progress is being made on the RSS reader., though it still shows no indication of when it will be ready:

  • @LonM But IMO this should be retagged as IN PROGRESS
    @Pesala What do ou think?...

    @ROTFL Maybe. It seems to be moving forward.



  • Rss feeder should be also a part of a more general monitoring solution like differential monitoring.



  • If and when this comes around, it would be nice if it could be plugged in to Sync. This poses some issues though: Given that some RSS feeds generate a lot of content, you don't want to clog the sync servers.

    Ideally, the list of subscribed urls, folders, would be synced - that isn't any more space consuming than storing bookmarks, so a non-issue.

    But it would also be nice if it could keep track of the actual messages that RSS subscriptions generate. E.g.

    • if I have RSS feeds on 2 machines
    • when they update a new article will get pushed to both
    • I read / delete / operate on an article on one machine
    • How do I avoid having to do the same action on the second machine?

    Maybe if it just kept track of the timestamp or hash of a received article that would suffice.

    I suppose this is one of the problems of a desktop RSS app as opposed to one of the web based solutions.



  • @LonM keeping track of state via a RSS item guid and syncing a state for each (or the most recent) should be easy.

    It may on the other hand be prudent to get ready ye olde pitchforks and torches if there are still feeds which do not use (or worse, wrongly use) this element. But this would break other readers as well…
