I've tried ZauRSS, but it's really rough-looking. I also don't think it supports anything beyond RSS 0.1.

It would be great to see an RSS aggregator/reader like NetNewsWire or NewsFire for the Z. I certainly wouldn't expect all the whistles and bells, but one that supports RSS 2.0 and Atom with an intuitive GUI layout.

I like Feed on Feeds, which is a server-side news aggregator rather than a desk-top. It works on an apache/php/mysql system and is very neat, though the original gui is a bit rough. There is an improved stylesheet for it which makes things a lot tidier though.

If you've got a server you can run java on, you might check out nntp//rss. It takes RSS feeds and puts them into usenet news format and runs an nntp server. I believe the opie mail reader will read news, as well. I *think* it will connect the news server and download all the new articles, which would allow it to be used disconnected.

I think you can also read the feeds with a browser with nntp//rss, as well, which would probably make clicking on links a lot easier than in the mail app.

"There will be no freeware Sunrise versions supporting Plucker for Linux or Mac OS X." I think a lot of people on this forum will steer clear of Sunrise for this very reason.

The sever-dependent RSS readers are good alternatives, I suppose, but my wish is to see just a plain ol' RSS aggregator and newsreader for the Z without having to rely on anything external.

I use JPluck, the predecessor of sunrise, to make Plucker documents from RSS feeds.
The readme says you need Java 1.4.2, I use 1.5.0.
I've used it daily for quite some time now and couldn't be more pleased. biggrin.gif

You might try DmBlogger, a ruby-based RSS agregator for the Zaurus:
http://wiki.digitalmorning.net/?DmBlogger

It's Japanese only, but it's not hard to figure out how to use it.

It (unfortunately) requires that multiple ipks be installed:
dmblogger_1.3.0-1_arm.ipk
ruby_1.8.0-1_arm.ipk
ruby-qte_0.5.2_arm.ipk
ymxml_0.4.9-1_arm.ipk
rbuconv_0.1.2-1_arm.ipk
libcrypt_0.9.6k-1_arm.ipk

I haven't used it extensively, so I can't really comment on how well it works, but it's probably worth checking out.

thank you ashikase i find this software really useful. I am doing an english translation of the scripts (although i dont understand any of the japanese) which seems to work fine, if anyone wants it i can upload the scripts i changed.

Finally a half decent rss reader for the zaurus....

That would be useful, I was thinking about a news plugin for opie-today (inspired by nilch's post about using Opera as a UI)...

I'd really like to have the English translations -- and a few installation hints, too, as I've no idea how to do it.

Thanks for the the suggestion, ashikase.

After using DMBlogger for a few days, I'm reporting back to say it's very close to what I was looking for. I'd like to be able to view the full entries in Opera instead of NetFront and I'd naturally prefer the menu info in English (I'm getting big, ugly blocks instead of Japanese), but it meets all my basic needs. I was able to easily import all my present feeds as an OMPL file... very handy.

DMBlogger is written in Ruby, so you should be able to change the text strings by editing the dmblogger files - assuming you can determine which file contains the string (there are many), and which string corresponds to which menu item.

As for it opening with opera, I took a quick look at the source and I think I found the solution: for DMBlogger (version 1.3.0) on line 52 of /home/QtPalmtop/bin/dmblogger/gui/berryrssdescviewwidget.rb, the program calls a qcop command:
CODE
system("qcop QPE/System \"execute(QString,QString)\" netfront3 #{@rssIten.getLink()}")

Changing "netfront3" to "opera" should do the trick.

Thanks to ashikase, I found an easy way to make an English translation.

In the same location (/home/QtPalmtop/bin/dmblogger/gui/), open the individual widget files in an application like BBEdit.

Toward the top you'll see something like this:

@itemMenu.insertItem(tr("*&*^%^ (&N)"), self, "new()", CTRL+Key_N)
@itemMenu.insertItem(tr("*&^&*%^$£@ (&P)"), self, "post()", CTRL+Key_P)

Replace the Japanese characters and odd symbols within the parenthetical quotes with the text after "self," i.e., "post," "new." After this, on the primary GUI, you should get something like RSS ®, Configure © and Tools (T) as your main menu headings, with Update Feed (G), Update all feeds (A) and Cancel RSS update (X) under the first, and so on.

If anyone finds this too complicated, I could post the individual widget files somewhere for easy downloading.

Incidentally, changing "netfront3" to "opera" does the trick.
