Django Google Reader Replacement

Project description

Django Feed Me

[![Build Status](](
[![Pypi Version](](

Django Feed Me is a replacement for Google Reader. It keeps track of your feeds, fetches the RSS feeds
and parses them in an easy to read interface. This is currently in development. The app works as POC using the Django
Admin. A separate interface for adding feeds is coming down in the pipeline.



To install FeedMe simply:

pip install django-feedme

Add ``feedme`` to your installed apps. Add route a url to ``feedme.urls``

Make sure to syncdb or migrate the app:

python syncdb
python migrate

If you want to use Celery for fetching (Recommended) then add:


to your settings file. Make sure you've installed and configured Celery properly. The syntax used should be good
for both Celery 2 and 3.

This app bundles static and works out of the box with django static files. If you aren't collecting static
you'll need to copy the static directory to where ever you serve static from.

You need to provide a login view that Feedme can use to provide a login link when the user isn't logged in. This is
referenced as ``auth_login`` by name.

url(r'^something/$', your.login.view, name='auth_login')

You will also need to provide a LOGIN_URL as well.


As of FeedMe 1.0 feedme requires Django 1.8 and above.

Feedme also requires the use of the django-bootstrap-static library for some static files. It is bundled in so by installing this package
it should already be downloaded to your machine. In order to have the bootstrap files picked up by your static files handler, you'll need to add
```bootstrap``` to installed apps. This will allow Django's static files to pick up the bootstrap files.

Celery Beat

To make use of the Celery beat schedule to automatically update feeds at given intervals, open your settings file and
enter something like the following:

import datetime

"feed-updates": {
"task": "update_all_feeds",
"schedule": datetime.timedelta(hours=1),

More documentation for Celery can be found at the CeleryProject.

Feedme Digest

You can enable the daily email digest of new feed items by setting up the from email setting
and enabling the Celery Beat task.::


and add the Task::

import datetime

"feedme-digest": {
"task": "send_digest",
"schedule": crontab(minute=0, hour=0),
