sfeed
  • dependencies are almost none
    • required:
      • C compiler (C99)
      • libc
    • optional
      • make
      • sh
      • awk
      • curl
      • ... etc common cli tools found from practically every installation, see the link at the beginning for more
  • a joy to use
  • simple
  • fast
  • lightweight


I've just started using them.
I've also added sfeed to my overlay.
I didn't see any package archives for different versions so ebuild pulls everything from git... via git protocol. I didn't see https git link either. :(

I hope someone else founds sfeed useful. ;)

This looks interesting, thanks.

I've tried using net-news/rsstail for this, but its usefulness is limited by pretty-printing that can't be turned off. (also it's at least 4 years out of date and on m-n death row so it probably won't be in portage much longer)

One tip for you guys and gals: Use #!/usr/bin/sfeed_update as a shebang for your sfeedrc config file(s).
Then it's easy just to create links to /etc/cron.hourly (for example) from the config file(s).

... and that is if your cron implementation supports symbolic links inside those directories.
Looks like the cronie doesn't like symlinks by default at least.

EDIT: Yup. It uses run-parts, which don't allow it. Dang it. I guess it is a safety measure.
