Welcome to the gnome-rss-applet wiki!

gnome-rss-applet is still in the planning phase. The idea is rewriting yarssr (the best rss reader with trayicon I have ever found) in python.
Yarssr can be found here: http://yarssr.sourceforge.net/

The reasons of the rewriting are:

  • I want to learn Python.
  • I wanted to contribute to yarssr and I couldn’t because I don’t know Perl.
  • Actually, the collection of applets in gnome doesn’t include a rss reader, which is essential for me.
  • Yarssr is unmaintained (correct me if I’m wrong)

If you want to help, just write me!
