RSS Reader: Raggle
Well, after getting some time over the US holiday to try to get raggle
built, I gave up. I am guessing that Fedora Core 5/6 are not very
ruby friendly yet, as I could not find everything I needed very
easily. I was able to get it almost all the way there, but I could
not get the ruby-Ncurses rpm to build, and I am very strict about
using the native package management system (ie RPM on a RPM based
system, portage on Gentoo, apt on a Debian deviant), so I will not be
trying this until I can get the RPMS.
In other news, I have found some more PIM type things to play with.
Does anyone know of a good CLI Palm Pilot sync package? Cold Sync seems to be dead, and I am
not sure if it will talk to modern Pilots.
Another RSS reader?
Well, it seems that someone is reading this after all.
So, tonight I have been given a pointer to raggle (http://www.raggle.org). I guess I need
to install ruby to try it out…
Thanks to Philip McClure for the pointer.
Updates after I try it out some…
Why would a web site dedicated to the CLI have a section on Window
Managers? Well, simple.
Some times, you just have to have X running. Some web sites I have to
do research at use Flash, or photo editing/managing, or my iPod (none
of the CLI tools let me manage play lists very easily).
Plus, I cannot get the same resolution on the console as I can under
So, what is a CLI user to do? Why, get a Window Manager (wm) that is
meant for us!
The features I look for include small footprint and full keyboard
integration. The current one I use is wmi-10, but it is no longer
under active development. The group working on it has moved to on to
wmii, but I do not like the changes,
so I am off looking for a new one to use.
From time to time, I will post how my search is going so you can see
what is out there.
What major apps do I use daily? Well, this is the list of apps that
I currently use daily:
- bash – my shell of choice
- screen – a schell multiplexer and more
- mitt-ng – a mua on steriods
- centericq – IM. How do you stay in touch?
- snownews – an RSS feed reader
- calcurse – a calendar/todo manger
- bashblogger – the CMS for this site
There are a few more, but I need to find URLs for them.
