Newsboat is an RSS/Atom feed reader for the text console. It's an actively maintained fork of Newsbeuter.
A feed reader pulls updates directly from sites like blogs and news agencies, and lets you review them in a single interface. Many times, the feed includes the full text of the update, so you don't even need to start a web browser! You can learn more about feed readers on Wikipedia.
You can download the latest version of Newsboat from the official site: https://newsboat.org/
Alternatively, you can check out the latest version from the Git repository:
$ git clone https://github.com/newsboat/newsboat.git
Newsboat depends on a number of libraries, which need to be installed before Newsboat can be compiled.
curl --version; most often that's OpenSSL, sometimes GnuTLS, or maybe something else.
Developers will also need:
cargo install xtr)
There are numerous ways:
install from your distribution's repository (a lot of distros have a package);
install via Snap:
$ sudo snap install newsboat
Our snap only supports
xdg-open as the browser, and you
can't run arbitrary scripts for rendering and bookmarking. The reason is
strict confinement; if we disabled it, the snap would be no better than
a distribution's package;
build from source with Docker. Note that the resulting binary might not run outside of that same Docker container if your system doesn't have all the necessary libraries, or if their versions are too old;
build from source in a chroot: to avoid polluting your system with developer
packages, or to avoid upgrading, you might use a tool like
debootstrap to create an isolated
environment. Once that's done, just build from source as outlined in the
build from source.
Install everything that's listed in the "Dependencies" section above. Make
sure to install the header files as well (on Debian and derivatives, headers
-dev packages, e.g.
Cross-compilers need to set
CARGO_BUILD_TARGET; see cargo
Then compile and install with:
$ make # pass -jN to use N CPU cores, e.g. -j8 $ sudo make install # install everything under /usr/local
To install to a different directory, pass
prefix like so:
sudo make prefix=/opt/newsboat install.
To uninstall, run
sudo make uninstall.
