Helium (will be) a simple RSS reader for OS X.

Features

  • Mark feeds as either "Important" or "Filler".
  • * Unread posts from important feeds always appear above unread posts from filler feeds.
  • * Important feeds contribute to the unread count.
  • Option to display posts from certain feeds as either full webviews of the <url>, or plain HTML of the <description>.
  • Unread posts move up the source list. Read posts move down as they are displaced by unread posts.
  • Repopulate the source list with more items when it's scrolled to the bottom (like Tweetie)
  • Growl notifications

Technical Details

  • Garbage Collected
  • Compiler: Clang/LLVM
  • 64-bit only (why the hell not)
  • NSXMLDocument for parsing (for now)
  • Core Data for storage
  • Snow Leopard only
