Description:

This is a very simple RSS reader going back to the essentials: We show title, time/date and description information from the feeds of one single source which can be chosen in the configuration menu. We do not use any images in the description; shown is only the text.

Left mouseclick on feed opens the connected html-page in the default browser, right mouseclick enables reload.

Plasmoid is written in QML.

Installation:

plasmapkg2 -i RSS.zip

Remove:

plasmapkg2 -r RSS.zip




Changelog:

v. 0.2:
- Exceptional faster reload after unsuccessful load of feed
- Handle Umlaut etc.

v. 0.3:
- Reload time is only determined by configuration
- Right mouseclick allows immediate reload of feed.
- Options allow now to change color and opacity of text, background, header.

 0.3

Yay for new version! There are however a few things I don't really like about it, in case they can be improved:

- Could the new background color become optional, for those of us who like seeing the text directly on the normal widget background? My hope was that , it would use the normal font color of the KDE color scheme, in order to fix the visibility issue with darker themes.

- I'm glad that the right-click menu has an option to reload the widget at will now. But the "Widget settings..." and "Desktop options" entries are gone! From what I'm seeing, all plasmoids are supposed to have these as well on right-click... entering the menu to customize the widget is a bit harder now due to this.

Hi,

- in fact, the new background color is optional: just set the alpha-channel to 0.

- the reload-option should only appear if you right-click inside the plasmoid. Right-clicking on the surrounding desktop gives you the desktop options. And hovering with mouse over applet opens the sidebar with customize options as it is usual for most plasmoids. Do you expect an option "customize" in the mouse menu?

Best,
andreas

Thanks for your reply! I noticed later that the background color could separately be set to lower alpha, which fixes that problem. Only thing I think would still be nice in this case, is an option to use color scheme colors instead of fixed colors only, for both the background and fonts. You know best if that's possible or worth implementing of course... I just use both light and dark schemes, and prefer widgets adapting automatically to each.

As for the right-click menu: The desktop-options entry matters less... the settings entry is however more important, so you don't have to always unlock widgets and click the wrench icon to access it. I pointed both out because every other plasmoid normally has them, even when custom entries are added to the click menu as well... so it sorta feels like a bug that they're missing here.

 Crash (v0.3)

Something I kept forgetting to mention: If you click on an entry in the feed, wait for the link to open in the web browser (in my case Firefox), then quickly scroll to another desktop, plasmashell crashes. If you wait long enough without doing anything however (about 10 seconds), no crash. Can anyone else confirm this bug and take a look at it please?

Also: The opacity for the background color is not persisted. If you open the settings menu, click the color field for Background Color, select an Alpha Channel lower than 255, click OK to save everything, then restart plasmashell, it will be back at 255.

Ignore the first problem, it's not caused by RSS Reader. It's a general Plasma issue which the widget only triggered.

Thank you a lot for your comments.

Yes, it is pretty annoying that part of the config gets lost after reboot or any restart of plasma. However, I have no idea why that is so. In the configuration file, transparency is stored in a hex code together with background color. Obviously this value is not read. A workaround would be to store the transparency separately, but that's not nice. I would appreciate a nice solution; unfortunately at the moment I don't have the time to search one by myself.

 html content and password protected feeds

Hey,

Great plasmoid, but couple of issues.

1. Feed doesn't parse html tags in the content/body, just shows them as is.

2. I have a feed that requires basic authentication. When I enter it in the plasmoid, it asks for username/password but never shows the result.

Thanks for the good work! Keep it up!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
