cuteNews is a user-friendly internet RSS news and podcast aggregator for Maemo5.

Features include:
  • Choice of 'OSSO' and 'Touch' user interfaces.
  • Choice of 'Dark on light' or 'Light on dark' reading modes.
  • Choice of URL, local file or custom command for subscription sources.
  • Import subscriptions via OPML.
  • Search articles using keywords or SQLite WHERE query.
  • Option to save articles as favourites.
  • Option to automatically download enclosures.
  • Option to add custom URL openers for handling links and enclosures.

Using custom commands for subscription source

The only requirement for a custom command is that it must output a valid RSS feed response to STDOUT, for example:

Code:
wget -q http://talk.maemo.org/external?type=RSS2 -O -
Custom URL openers

Custom URL openers can be managed either in the application, or by manually creating/editing the config file located at
~/.config/cuteNews/urlopeners. Each URL opener has a display name, a regular expression (used to match the activated URL)
and a command that will be executed when a URL is activated:

Code:
[My MP3 handler]
regExp=http(s|)://.+\.mp3$
command=/usr/bin/mp3player
Now, any link to an MP3 file will be opened using the specified command.

well as usual its a solid piece in your cute lineup of diverse products
but for me looks like i am more sticked to copernicious app though its slow but audio news is awsome and uses a fair amount of bandwith daily
but your app looks nicer i mean the layout so would like to ask any chances that it gets ofline mode i.e i open the app select offline consumption and it downloads articles for the session so i am able to disconnet save battrey read whenever i get time in my busy shedule without worring about network or battrey.
also if there is a plugin that i can install on dextop browsers that alows send to n900 i.e links and later on n900 i syncronise and have knowledge and fun without coming returning home with a empty battrey

currently i use opera mini for the purpose it works nice but got flatal flaws like draining battrey even if i disconect no ability to open links via system i.e a huge problem in itself no systemwide copypaste and more so i use a combination of linguine and opera daily it works but makes my n900 pee in my pockets

hopes are high for a new generation content aggregator program


thanks

Articles are already downloaded and stored in a SQLite database. The only items not cached to disk are the images, but that option may be added later. You can download enclosures either manually using a long-press on the link, or automatically by enabling the 'Download enclosures automatically' option when adding a feed.

Regarding sync from desktop, you can source articles from wherever you like using the custom command option when adding a feed, so it's possible to use a script that retrieves the articles stored on your desktop machine.

Unfortunately the application does not work properly for me.
It starts normally.
Then I go to "New subscription" and enter the address. All seems to work properly until now.
When I click done it downloads some data for short period of time and sets the name for the feed (properly). But there is no articles. Now every time I hit update it connects to the Internet but does nothing. I can see a short blink of "Updating..." information but the feed still is empty.

Is there a plan to support OPML import?

OPML import has been implemented ready for the forthcoming update.

Also, a homescreen widget:

Some clarification:
After starting the app through Terminal, during updating any feed I get an error:
Code:
QNetworkReplyImpl::_q_startOperation was called more than once

That is harmless warning caused by a private QtNetwork method being called more than once. The method simply returns in this case, so there is no harm done. Your problem is probably caused by some error in parsing the RSS feed. If you could list the feeds you have tried, I will test them on my device.
