-
-=== Notes ===
-
-This alpha and original Canto should be capable of coexistence. The binaries for
-this alpha are:
-
- - canto-daemon
- - canto-curses
-
-And the default configuration is put at
-
- - ~/.canto-ng/*
-
-=== First Run ===
-
-Start canto-daemon
-
- $ canto-daemon
-
-Wait a moment. Start canto-curses
-
- $ canto-curses
-
-=== Configuration ===
-
-Eventually, all configuration will be done through the interface itself, or via
-a canto-remote command to provide a command line interface to the daemon and its
-configuration abilities. For now though you're stuck hand-editing. After the
-initial run, the configuration file's format (~/.canto-ng/conf) should be
-evident (INI-style). Too add a feed, add a heading like this:
-
-[Feed Feedname]
-url = http:///whatever
-order = #
-rate = #
-
-Other settings are sparse at the moment, however the following might be
-interesting:
-
-[CantoCurses]
-browser = /some/path %%u
-
-[defaults]
-rate = #
-global_transform = filter_read
-
-To get decent browser behavior and show_unread like filtering.
-
-After all configuration changes, you must restarts the daemon. Again this will
-be handled by a remote in the future, but for now ^C will have to do, or
-`killall -INT canto-daemon` if you've backgrounded it.
-
-=== Logging ===
-
-Currently, the daemon's logs are *extremely* verbose and can break into the 100M
-/ 6hr range. Fortunately it compresses pretty well (90%). Anyway, if you don't
-have the disk space to burn, you can delete it and it won't be regenerated until
-another daemon is started... of course if you run into a bug that can't be
-reproduced at that point, you're SOL.
-
-=== Curses Interface Keybinds ===
-
-These should be familiar and are not configurable at this point.
-
-Up / Down : move selection
-PgUp/PgDn : duh
-'g' : goto current item(s) in browser
-Space : open/close reader
-'q' : quit
-'e' : enumerate items
-'E' : enumerate tags
-'u' : tag unread
-'U' : all unread
-'r' : tag read
-'R' : all read
-':' : command line
-
-=== Fun Stuff ===
-
-Without making a selection (currently only in freshly opened client) hit 'g' for
-goto, it will enumerate the items and ask you which you'd like to open. This
-supports specifications like:
-
- * - Goto all items
- 1 - Goto item 1
- 1, 2 - Goto items 1 and 2
- 1 2 - Goto items 1 and 2
- 1-13 - Goto items 1 through 13
-
-Similarly, command line functions like 'tag-state' and 'item-state' will
-enumerate tags/items and prompt you for a state (try 'read', '-read' since
-they're the only things that actually cause different display).
-
-=== Curses Interface Update ===
-
-The only way to update the interface is to restart.
-
-=== Limitations ===
-
-- Reader is only basic, doesn't even do scroll.
-
-- Layout is done totally dynamically, but the default layout is very basic, so
- you get behavior like the reader splitting vertically when the whole terminal
- is only 20 characters wide and some such. This will be improved.
-
-- Configuration is minimal and done by hand
-
-=== Things to Watch For ===
-
-- Opening reader and getting "Waiting for content..." forever. The daemon should
- be pinning all items given to client to disk, so this shouldn't happen. I
- mention it here because the pinning is still relatively recent and is
- extremely important.
-
-=== Known Bugs ===
-
-- Sometimes browsers don't like being invoked 60 times in less than a minute
- when opening 60 different links in a batch.
-
-- Some keys have different semantics when used with a selection versus without.
- Canto-curses is kind of modal in this way, but the distinction is not fully
- made yet.
-
-Send me reports at jack@codezen.org, with ~/.canto-ng/*-log
-(curses-log and daemon-log) attached or posted some place with a description of
-what happened if it's tied to a particular set of actions.
