[Solved] What's the intended/idea way to use forum RSS

1. What client should I use?
2. How should I configure it?
3. How do I optimize it?
4. Useful plugins for said client.

Alright, so RSS isn't a very great experience. For any forum that provides RSS.

1. Not all the topics show up
2. It just opens it in a web browser anyway

Re: [Solved] What's the intended/idea way to use forum RSS

I tried it with Newsboat recently. It worked, I just missed my daily forum troll checking things out. I now just visit my sites daily like I always did. I do however keep it running and checking for Arch news stuff along with a few other sites, not forums directly. It's piped to a script that runs on my xfce panel.

Here's the script I made / modified.

#!/bin/sh
# tadaen sylvermane | jason gibson
# modified from comment in reddit article
# https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/101rcs/what_rssnews_aggregator_do_you_use/
# by MCHerb

# set local $PATH

PATH=/usr/bin

# refresh lists


# crontab this. i have it every hour  
# newsboat -x reload

# this runs every 30 seconds via  xfce generic monitor panel plugin

# get number of unread, if any

COUNT=$(newsboat -x print-unread | awk '{print $1}')

# if any unread then mod number shown else maintain 0

if [ "$COUNT" -gt 0 ] ; then
        echo " News: ${COUNT} "
else
        echo " News: 0 "
fi
