This is a very simple project, based upon the excellent feedparser library ( ). It allows a user to download an RSS or atom feed and show it on the terminal.

Feedreader adapts its output to the number of columns and rows that your terminal is actually capable of displaying. When it has used all the space available on the screen, it pauses and wait until the user press the ENTER key to continue, or q to quit.
