With the terminal: Newsbeuter reads your RSS by console

Although in a way what I am doing is reinventing the wheel, I still I continue with the idea of ​​creating a RSS reader per console for FromLinux.

However, if you want something already functional for this task, I present to you Newsbeuter, a reader RSS the coolest thing. To install it on Debian we open a terminal and put:

$ sudo aptitude install newsbeuter

Then we execute it so that it creates the configuration folder in ~ / .newsbeuter. With the key [Q] we exit the application and then we put the URL What do we want to load the RSS reader. For this we create the file ~ / .newsbeuter / urls and we put something like this inside it:


These are some, you can put as many as you want. We launch the application again in the terminal with the command:

$ newsbeuter

And we should get something like this.

To update all channels, we use the key combination [Shift] + [R], All the available shortcuts can be seen at the bottom.

If we want to see the content of a channel, we move with the keys [up and down] And we pressed [enter], getting something like this:

To mark all as read, we use the combination [Shift] + [A]. And if we want to see a specific article, we do the same:

To return to a higher level we do it with the key [Q].

The only bad thing about this RSS reader, is that we have to manually add the URL addresses but it does not matter, it works perfectly and is very fast.
