A simple CLI RSS feed reader.
roman is written in Nim. Binaries are not yet available, so you will need to build from source. With
nim 0.20 installed, you should simply need to run
html2text to display post bodies. You will need to have it installed on your system.
roman only displays the current entries available in a feeds the user is subscribed to.
To subscribe to feeds, use the
--subscribe flag. For example,
roman --subscribe https://feedwebsite.com/feed.rss
Then, when you run
roman, you will be able to select a feed and post to view. Unread posts are marked as
roman is still in very early development. Several improvements are planned!
You will need to copy the
config/config file in this repository to
roman/config within your platform's standard config directory. You can change the values in the file to your taste.
Cross-platform support is fully intended, but for now,
roman is only tested on Linux. (Most of the code should work just fine, but some filepaths that are generated are currently Linux-only. A patch would be happily accepted!)
