Newsbeuter Build Status

by Andreas Krennmair

Newsbeuter is an RSS feed reader for the text console. Zed Shaw called it "The Mutt of Feed Readers".

It is designed to run on Unix-like operating systems such as Linux. NetBSD is currently not supported, due to technical limitations.


You can download the latest version of newsbeuter from the following website:

Alternatively, you can check out the latest version from the newsbeuter Git repository (hosted on GitHub):

git clone git://


Newsbeuter depends on a number of libraries, which need to be installed before newsbeuter can be compiled.

Debian unstable comes with ready-to-use packages for these dependencies.


Compiling and installing newsbeuter is as simple as:

make install
