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="" />
