RSS Feed Notifications

Notifications news about the release of a new update for Linux distributive based on rolling releases, such as Manjaro and Arch linux.

This application is based on two crystal shards:

It works like this - if the date of publication coincides with the current date, a notification is displayed and when you click on the notification, a browser opens with a news page.



In the launch shortcut file rss-feed-notifications.desktop replace Icon=quiterss with your own.

  1. git clone git: //
  2. cd rss-feed-notifications
  3. install shards
  4. crystal build --release --no-debug src/
  5. cp ~/rss-feed-notifications/rss-feed-notifications ~/.local/bin/rss-feed-notifications
  6. cp ~/rss-feed-notifications/rss-feed-notifications.desktop ~/.config/autostart/rss-feed-notifications.desktop
  7. restart system
  8. enjoy


File ~/.config/<application-name>/config.yml with settings default to be created automatically when you first start the application, with settings:

  • days: example the news came out on 08/15/2019, and will be show +1 day from the day release, until it is viewed from the notification
  • refresh: news check interval at minutes
  • label: notification label in your language, default: Show
  • summary: summary
  • url: url feed
  • icon: if you want to put your icon for notification, replace for example icon: nil with icon: your-icon-symbolic

You can change the parameters. Can also rename an application, for example rss-feed-notifications to rss-feed

  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
