Summary: idea: virtual news listings
AssignedTo: akregator-devel lists sourceforge net
ReportedBy: phoenixreads rogers com
Version: 1.0-beta5 "Pierre" (using KDE 3.2.3, Gentoo)
Compiler: gcc version 3.3.3 20040412 (Gentoo Linux 3.3.3-r6, ssp-3.3.2-2, pie-8.7.6)
OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.6-win4lin-r3
This idea is akin to Evolution's Virtual Directories.
I have only been using akregator for a few days, I only have four world news sites (amoung others), article count is 200+.
That a lot of searching, even using the filter. Yes I am aware of "directory" trees.
The initial idea is to have a virtual feed called "Election", setup search parameters (multiple search strings, search headlines and/or descriptions, feeds to search). And the mouth watering idea? Searching the articles themselves. In essence the start of a news feed agent.
The computer does it's magic and I am presented with all news article to my specifications.
How? Search the given feeds and extract the matches to create a local rss file. Everything else would work the same.
