Newsbeuter Build Status Coverage Status

by Andreas Krennmair ak@newsbeuter.org

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 GNU/Linux and FreeBSD. NetBSD is currently not supported, due to technical limitations.

Downloading

You can download the latest version of newsbeuter from the following website: http://www.newsbeuter.org/

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

git clone git://github.com/akrennmair/newsbeuter.git

Dependencies

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.

Installation

Compiling and installing newsbeuter is as simple as:

make
make install

(And if you ever need to uninstall it, use make uninstall.)

Tests

If you're a developer, here's how you can run the test suite:

make -j5 PROFILE=1 all test
(cd test && TMPDIR=/dev/shm ./test --order rand)

Note the use of ramdisk as TMPDIR: some of our tests require temporary files, which degrades the performance quite a bit if TMPDIR isn't in-memory.
