Information eXtraction and MONitoring tool
A terminal based (rss/atom/youtube/vine/instagram/weather/stocks/cryptocurrency/kitchen sink) feed reader and monitor written in php.
You will need php 5 or higher with ncurses support (adding with yum or apt to an existing php installation should go off without a hitch), xterm, and optionally, "fortune", and the imagemagick command line tools for generating image previews.
For dependencies on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, try
apt-get install php5 php5-dev libncursesw5-dev php-pear fortune imagemagick php5-curl
pecl install ncurses
To build ixmon, run the Makefile one level up from the src/ directory
make make test make install
It will try to install to /usr/local/bin/ixmon by default, to install as a non-root user, just copy off the resulting executable "ixmon" script wherever you'd like.
The php script installs to /usr/local/bin/ixmon by default, and configuration files are kept in ~/.ixmon/
The ~/.ixmon/config file is where you specify the RSS/etc URLS you wish to monitor
#### Sample Config # lines begining with a "#" are comments # lines begining with a -- are group names # # # The following example would create a group called 'trend data' with two # feed urls, a group called 'news' with two items, and a group called # 'financial' with three items # # --trend data # http://www.google.com/trends/hottrends/atom/feed?pn=p1 # http://feeds.feedburner.com/RsoeEdis-EmergencyAndDisasterInformation # --news # https://github.com/ixmon.atom # http://www.infowars.com/rss # --financial # coin://bitcoin # coin://dogeecoin # stock://GLD
Pressing ESC from within the program will show you keyboard shortcuts (VIM and arrow keys, plus a few more) and some quick information about the syntax of the configuration file, and please check out http://Ixmon.com to see this program reincarnated as an ajax webapp.
