Local RSS reader/viewer

Project Description


What is it?

This extension proposes a way to download new posts from blogs and to navigate through them with a couple of HTML pages managed by a local python server using a SQLite database:

from pyrsslocal import rss_update_run_server
fLOG (OutputPrint = True)
xml_blogs = "subscriptions.xml"
dbfile = "rss_posts.db3"
rss_update_run_server(dbfile, xml_blogs)

The previous example takes a dump of blogs url coming from the former Google Reader (see below), downloads RSS streams, loads everything into a database (SQLlite format), and opens a local web application to read them, mark them, or search their titles. The XML file which describes the blogs looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<opml version="1.0">

        <outline text=""

        <outline text="XD blog"
                 title="XD blog"
                 htmlUrl="" />
