Rss Viewer For Pdaxrom
« on: May 05, 2007, 10:29:49 am »
Zort modified for Zaurus & Offline news reading
---------------------------------------------------------

Original scripts from http://zort.sourceforge.net/

I made some changes to zort in order to have a fast and easy accessible offline (or online) rss feed aggregator for pdaXrom. The original scripts have been designed with modern browsers on mind and rely on javascript and css, I have stripped it down to basic html and made it display one page per feed with header and footer links to quickly navigate between feeds.

Rename the .txt file to .tgz and unpack to the root, this will create /var/www/zort and /usr/bin/sync-rss you can change these locations if you wish.

You will need apache running with php, and you may need to tweak the timeout value in php.ini if you have many feeds. I personally run this from a debian server as it's quicker but have tested it works fine inpdaXrom also.

Also I have made a simple shell script to download the pages for offline viewing (/usr/bin/sync/rss) you should edit this script if you with to change any paths of your files - default htdocs is /var/www.

Once you have run /usr/bin/sync-rss it will create a launcher script here /var/www/offline/offline_reader.sh (this can easily be changed in sync-rss) which will remap the scroller on a CXX00 to pgup/pgdn and launch the latest offline copy in dillo.

This was originally intended for personal use but if anyone likes it feel free to suggest improvements

Credits to the original zort author.

EDIT: please rename .txt to .tgz and unpack - sorry no ipk!

Sorry, perhaps I'm being stupid but I can't download that.

If I click on it, then I get the text file open in a new tab (Firefox) or window (IE). If I right click and pick save as, then I get the index.php html file saved instead.

If I use wget then I get the html file.

Go on, tell me how to download it....

Right clicking and doing a "Save as" works AFAIK (works for me). You just need to enter a new name and not index.php.
