Using Newsbeuter to read your RSS feedsPublished on February 1, 2014
After the shutdown of Google Reader I was in desperate need of a new feed reader. After using Feedbin for a few months I finally settled on Newsbeuter. It’s a beautiful, highly customizable and text based RSS feed reader for your terminal - some even call it the “Mutt of Feed Readers”.
After playing around for a while my current setup looks like this:
There are a lot of parameters to tailor it to your needs in the Newsbeuter documentation.
.newsbeuter/config looks like this:
If you are on Mac OS 10.9.x and want to install it via homebrew you’ll have to edit the formula so it’s using the
c++11 branch of the repository because there’s a namespace problem with the current branch.
To do that just run a
brew edit newsbeuter and replace the line containing
head 'https://github.com/akrennmair/newsbeuter.git', :branch => 'c++11'
It should look like this at the time of this writing:
homepage 'http://newsbeuter.org/' url 'http://newsbeuter.org/downloads/newsbeuter-2.7.tar.gz' sha1 'e49e00b57b98dacc95ce73ddaba91748665e992c' head 'https://github.com/akrennmair/newsbeuter.git', :branch => 'c++11' depends_on 'pkg-config' => :build ...
After editing the formula just
brew install homebrew as usual and start editing your config.
