Feed Reader *Plus*

Minimum required   GTK 2.x
Downloads:  1232
Submitted:  Aug 31 2010
Updated:  Sep 9 2010


Feed Reader Plus is an enhancement of the original Feed Reader screenlet by Whise.

Here's whats new:
- Pull FeedReader window title from feed and allow option to specify custom title in options menu.
- Highlighting of new feed items until clicked, moused over or next update
- Ability to show publish times (off / full date string / relative to now)
- Allow control of tooltip display (off / full title / description)
- Configurable action on item click (nothing / item link / feed link)
- Configurable delay for displaying tooltips and mouse over status change
- Configurable number of rows used to display item titles
- Add "Mark all as read", "Mark as read" and "Mark as new" options to right-click menu.
- Don't let item titles overrun bounds
- Non-destructive error handling when feed unable to be retrieved
- Fix changing scale by wheelmouse scrolling
- Proper collapsing of feed window when clicking top bar
- Disabled themes as they were conflicting with ability to customize style
- Adjust width of screenlet through config menu
- Use of ETags and Last-Modified headers to allow server side update checking
- Remove effect of not highlighting an item when you come back to it after going off screen.
- Bunch of smaller bug fixes

Known issues, that require either more investigation or a screenlets fix:
- Feed item descriptions shown in tooltips will fail to display (blank tooltip) if they contain HTML markup (quite common).
- Resizing FeedReader window width by dragging is blocked by broken on_mouse_up event firing.
- If you make background colors too transparent (~ opacity < 50%) event handling may get all screwed up (highlighting flickers, can't get proper right click menu, etc..).



- Avoid screenlet being stuck in "Keep Above" mode by using proper __name__ format.

- Fixed crash during feed retrieval errors when "Server side update checking" enabled (default).

I am a traditional chinese user. have tested ClearRss, Feed Reader. and they work bad in chinese, only show one news item.

But your *Plus* works great, maybe you can add a "reload now" on context menu, thanks again. sorry for my pool english.

I don't see the point of having a manual refresh. If you want your feeds updated faster just decrease the Update Interval to 1 minute.

Ah, I encountered this too and I just forced the setting in .config/Screenlets. Didn't know it was because of the name.

Fixed in 1.0.2. Thanks.

Hey, is there a way to change the colours of tooltips and their position?

 Joining individual Screenlets

I don't know how much you hold an eye on Screenlets, but maybe you would be interested joining the project https://launchpad.net/indiv-screenlets with your code. I suppose you should just continue the FeedReader in the project. No need to split into Plus.

There is some documentation on this as well as connected topics at http://www.screenlets.org/index.php/Documentation#Why_should_I_add_my_Screenlet_to_individual_Screenlets_project.

I think I don't need to mention that Screenlets Core needs some help too. By now looking through the bugtracker is the most important thing, I suppose.
