It seems to be a KDE 4.4 (?) plasmoid.

Building fine with the Kubuntu Lucid (alpha1) / KDE 4.4 (beta2).

Though the plasma is crashing when using it - maybe with the KDE 4.4 RC1.

It's because QIcon::fromTheme is Qt 4.6 only.
I fixed this so it should work for Qt 4.5 / KDE 4.3.
I also improved stability.

 Font Color....

Nice Plasmoid =)

Any chance that you create some options to change the color of the font and open the feed with the default-browser (e.g. Firefox)?

I'm glad you like it.

I could provide the option to change font color, but I'd like to know why you need a specific color ?

I made this plasmoid to be able to read feeds in a full-featured browser (unlike Akregator viewer), so I understand why you would need Firefox.

However, you may have noticed that this plasmoid is designed to remote control a browser in a single tab (using Akregator, I was opening all articles in new tabs which lead to heavy memory usage).

Unfortunately, Firefox doesn't provide a D-BUS interface to remote control it.
You would have to first write a Firefox extension to provide the interface.

But if you want, I can simply open articles as new tabs in the default browser.

Hehe, maybe I use the plasmoid in a different way than supposed?

I like your widget because it shows all the headlines of an rss-source at once, so I have not to scroll. When I like a headline, I want to open it with my favorite browser by a single >>click<<.

I need a different color of the font because I use the oxyglass-theme which is pretty transparent so I cannot read a black font on dark wallpaper. A different font-size and design would also be nice but is not necessary.


PS: I have to fetch the feeds manually after boot. Is it a bug or so intended?

It's interesting to see different usages of this plasmoid.

I wanted a panel popup showing only new messages but it doesn't seem to be your usecase.
So if I understand correctly, you're using it directly on the desktop ?
I'd like to know what features made you choose this plasmoid ?

I changed the URL handling to open in the default browser.
I'll either provide a font color and size option or look into theming support.
I'll release the new version when it's done.

What do you mean by different design ? The current design is simply a Plasma::TreeView in an ExtenderItem so it should be themed correctly.

PS: It should fetch on startup.
If you're on WLAN, maybe the network didn't had enough time to setup.
If you're showing feeds directly on the desktop, they may not get initialized properly. Unlike popups which are created when the fetch is completed.

I updated the source with plasma theming (i.e font color and size) and default browser support.

Thank you for updating!

I uploaded a screenshot so you can see how I use it and why I need a different font color:

Firefox works well but how can I change the color? I cannot find any options.

I connect via W-Lan to the internet, do you have any idea how to fetch after boot automatically?

I had changed the plasmoid to use the default font, but color and font are not the same settings.
I tested it with a dark theme and it works now.

It's nice to see it works correctly on the desktop. Could you do a screenshot of the plasmoid with the new color settings so I can add it here.

I also added support for Solid, so it should fetch feeds when Solid detect a connection, but I can't test it.

If you're using a binary distro, you need to install development packages for KDE.
Then you can checkout latest source using git :

git clone git://gitorious.org/plasma-feed/plasma-feed.git

To build and install, run:
cd plasma-feed
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
sudo make install
kbuildsycoca4

Once it appears in the list of your available plasmoids, you can add it on your desktop or in your system tray.

Thanks! Looks very good!

Only one more question: i tried to increase the gadget, but it seems to force a constant aspect.

i want to display many different sources, so it should have a small width, but a great high. is there a trick to change the aspect?

 A couple of changes I'd like to see implemented

 
 by cbg on: Oct 13 2011

As mentioned in the last thread, your applet seems to enforce a particular landscape aspect ratio.

This doesn't suit me, as I want it to have portrait orientation and to be much narrower than it is now.

For this to work, you'll need to change the code to wrap any overlapping text around to the next line.

This has already been done in the default 'News' applet, so you can probably just copy the code from there.

Are you happy to implement those two features: unrestricted widget size/aspect and text wrap-around?

You can simply edit the source:
- view->setMinimumWidth(320);
+ view->setMinimumWidth(16);

I'm using a Plasma::TreeView to display the feeds.
Plasma API is not as rich as Qt's so I don't think I can do anything to help with the wrapping issue,

Yes - this is exactly what I was looking for, concerning both look and behaviour! I use it the same way as Thule does and therefore have the same requirements.

But why do I have to hold the CTRL-key to make the widget bigger? Shouldn't this "just work" with the size button as other widgets do?

I clicked on that mail symbol in the right upper corner of a feed (alas there is no tooltip) and now the feed has vanished. But it is still listed in the configuration. How do I get it back?

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
