Nice! Now the user gets a radiobutton list to select among RSS Feed Reader and 3 test entries.

The problem I see is how to register apps there. Is it a static list or does is grow as you install feed capable apps?

Also, it would be good to have it not as visible app but as invisible dependency from GPodder and other apps agreeing to use this "fix".

And while you are at it, please remove the word 'Maemo' from the application name. Thanks!

Currently it's only a static list (the 3 test entries do nothing useful), but I only wanted to use it as a test if the feed handling out of the browser works the same on Fremantle as on Diablo.

The next step is to refactor the app to allow the list to grow as we install capable apps. I'll try to find the authors of feed readers from Maemo.org apps and contact them to discuss what their requirements are and design something based on that.

Sure thing. Actually, having "feedhandler" as the name of the package is okay already, and the only UI that the app has (the "Choose which app to open this feed with") is probably going to not really require any name (so that it appears as a natural extension to the browser/feed readers.

New release: gPodder 0.16.1-10frmntl0 in Fremantle Extras-Devel.

This depends on the (also newly-released) feedhandler 0.2, which has a more Fremantle-esque UI and real support for both gPodder and the RSS feed reader (still static, but I'm currently discussing the best way with RSS reader authors). The dependency will automatically be installed with the upgrade and feedhandler is not shown in Application Manager anymore.

Please test in Extras-Devel and if everything works, I'll promote both packages to Extras-Testing.

It works! And quite nicely. I have tested it with http://www.gardnermuseum.org/rss.xml

One thing. After selecting GPodder as feed handler you are sent to the dialog where e URL is introduced. The URL is already there and the user only needs to click the OK button. Why not adding it automagically?

I just copied the behaviour of the (Diablo) RSS feed reader, which also shows its "Add feed" dialog with the URL already typed in:



Granted, the RSS feed reader allows the user to choose a folder where to add the subscription, and gPodder really only has the entry and the "Add" button.

I though it'd be nice to have a last chance of cancelling the operation and to "see" that gPodder comes in front instead of the browser. It is quite easy to change that behaviour, though, and have it add the feed as soon as gPodder is selected from the menu.

Yep, that article was really helpful. I'm currently working on implementing these changes and re-integrating the Fremantle changes into gPodder 2.0:
