Usage

Feeds are added via a file called rssfeeds in located in the user's $HOME/.config/feedreader folder.

This file will not be created automatically, so it is up to the user to do so.

The config file follows a key=value format. Comments are lines beginning with #. It uses the following keys:

Key Description
browser An executable to launch when clicking on an article.
update_interval The amount of time (in seconds) between automatic refreshes.
max_articles The maxiumum number of articles to show per feed.
feed Two values, separated by a comma. The first value is the title to be displayed for this feed. The second is the URL of a valid RSS feed. This key can be used multiple times to add more feeds.

Example Configuation

# settings
browser=firefox
update_interval=600
max_articles=15

# feeds
feed=Example Feed,http://www.example.com/feed.rss
feed=Example Feed 2,http://www.example.com/feed2.rss
