Terminal Feed is a minimal feed reader for the terminal (without curses).
To read, preview, open, store, or delete your favorite RSS feeds from the command line.
If 1) you are a terminal addict, and 2) you want to stay up to date with the outside world by reading quick feed and summaries WITHOUT having to leave your terminal; then TermFeed is for you. These are the main reasons I created TermFeed.

$ pip install TermFeed
from the source distribution,
download and unpack the zipped folder, then:
$ cd TermFeed $ python setup.py install
$ pip uninstall TermFeed
I use a data file (
.termfeed.db) as a mini-database to maintain the RSS URLs.
This file is created at the home directory (e.g.
$HOME/.termfeed.db), delete it as well.
Remember, you may need to run these commands as an admin e.g.
$ sudo ...
- Tested on OS X and Linux.
- Supports Python 2.7 and Python 3.4
- The URLs in
urls.pyare complementary. They will be added to your library at
$HOME/.termfeed.dbwhen you run TermFeed (
$ feed) for the first time. You may delete them all and have your own list instead.
- Instant RSS Search is a nice search engine for searching RSS feeds.
