RSS on console
 
In search of a nice console GPL'ed RSS client, created this topic. I don't need just graphical functionality turned into ASCII text, just commandline.

Thanks.

I found this newsbeuter

But I cannot build it for the moment since the required stfl library doesn't compile. The problem comes from the ruby binding. If I deactivate it, it builds normally with python and perl bindings.

Another vote for snownews. It's just the thing a true slacker needs :)

Thanks for snownews. But this was not what I need, because still it is not doing what I want:
Code:

user@host:~$ iwantlatestrss
hire it is:
--in bla bla:
  - new sw was released
  - bug fixed
  - archive updated
--in foobar:
  - search
  - hide
  - destroy
user@host:~$ iwantlatestrss | i | run | it | through | series | of | pipe | text | filters

With snownews currently it is not possible.

Then use wget and parse the XML that comes back.
