BRss 0.8.12

Offline DBus RSS reader
BRss is an offline RSS reader written in Python. It is a complete rewrite of another python RSS reader (Naufrago!), based on the concept of service/client. It uses the dbus library to enable communication between the service and clients.

BRss consists of two applications:

1. brss-engine
brss-engine is a dbus service. Its main features are:
    - periodically downloads feed articles, with their images
    - notify on updates
    - transparently replaces remote image tags on article request.
    - search articles

2. brss-reader
brss-reader is a GTK+ client for brss-engine.
    - Connects to brss-engine
    - Keyboard feed and article navigation (à la Thunderbird)
    - full-screen article viewing
    - Article search engine


How to install this modules may vary depending on your distribution. In Archlinux run the following command as root:

pacman -S dbus-python pygobject python2-feedparser python-pysqlite gtk3 \
    libwebkit3 libnotify gcc gettext

1. Extract the archive

 tar zxf brss-0.8.5dev.tar.gz
 cd brss-0.8.5dev

2. Install

 sudo python install

3. For some reason, the schema is not copied during installation, so do it manually.

 sudo cp brss/schemas/com.itgears.BRss.gschema.xml /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/

4. Compile the schema folder

 sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/
