You can probably tell I've been heavily into Emacs again recently, and Emacs is like heroin and once I start I just want more. So, I've returned to using Elfeed for reading my RSS feeds.
Since I use Doom Emacs, configuring Elfeed is easy.
(rss +org) in init.el and create a new file at
~/org/elfeed.org and start adding feeds. The
+org adds support for using Org mode to define the feed list . Something like...
* root :elfeed: ** Photography :photography: *** [[https://6x6portraits.wordpress.com/][6×6 Portraits | Kenneth Wajda]] *** [[http://www.alexluyckx.com/blog/][Alex Luyckx | Blog – Photographer, Explorer, Wanderer]] *** [[http://www.fogdog-photography.com/][Fogdog]] *** [[http://leicaphilia.com/][Leicaphilia]] *** [[https://www.macfilos.com/][Macfilos | Leica Camera News, Reviews & Photography Blog]] ** General Nerdery *** https://controlaltbackspace.org/feed.xml ** Programming :programming: ** News :news: *** Top news :tops: **** http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/rss.xml ...
I use Org links so that they're easy to read but one can just as easily use only the feed URL for each entry.
Now I'm always just an
M-x elfeed away from catching up on my RSS feeds. I have an Emacs bookmark pointing to an Elfeed query showing just recent unread entries, like so
Elfeed unread @2-week-ago +unread
While it's nice having my feeds in the same environment as nearly everything else I'm doing, using Emacs for this ain't pretty, so I eventually tire of seeing everything in all text all the time and will happily retreat back to NetNewsWire. But for now Elfeed is fast and fun.
