Rss for news feeds?

@deadherring said in Rss for news feeds?:
and one from CNN, I configured on the pi itself, modifying the config file with a mouse and keyboard on the pi. The rest that I shared that weren’t working, modified the config file on my mac via text edit and then ftp’d the file up to the pi. I suspect that the mac might be saving the file in a way the pi does not like, or, as was suggested, inputting the " s in a way the pi does not like. At least, that’s my theory right now, I need to test when I get home.
I think you may be on to something here. Looking back at your complete list of feeds, this is what showed up from your copy & paste:
}, title: â€œJerusalem Postâ€ url: â€œhttp://www.jpost.com/Rss/RssFeedsFrontPage.aspxâ€ },
Now I don’t know about your Mac, but from here that looks like some unicode characters where there should be UTF-8. The quotes around Jerusalem Post and the URL value are jacked up. I think you’re better off SSH into the Pi and using nano to edit the

I got this working, the problem was indeed something with the formatting by editing as a text file on my mac. By sshing into the box and modifying the config file directly on the pi I got it working.
One question I still have: is there any way to tell the box to drop headlines after 2 days or so? I’m seeing headlines that are 5, 6, 7, 8 days old cycle through and they are no longer news. I’m seeing some new headlines make their way in but the majority are old. I want to have the MM drop headlines when they are stale, say after 2 days time.
I see there is a updateInterval tag but I believe that refers to the frequency it checks for new headlines, not when it drops old headlines off. Anyone else having the same issue?
