Description

This is a simple, lightweight, RSS ticker. I had looked at a number of tickers but they took a lot of CPU cycles and cost money. I wanted a simple, OS independent, ticker so I wrote this one in Java. It reads RSS 0.91, 1.0, 2.0 and ATOM feeds.

    The files have no extension, and could be .zip .tar.gz .tar.bzip or who knows.

    Reply to https://sourceforge.net/users/?user_id=3417077 Last time I checked, jrsst sf download page offers 3 files: an exe file, a .jar file, and a file with no extension which is in fact a bash script with the jar file uuencoded. This is the beggining: #! /bin/bash trap 'rm -f /tmp/JRSST-2.2.2.jar' ERR rm -f /tmp/JRSST-2.2.2.jar UUDECODE=`which uudecode 2> /dev/null` if [ "$UUDECODE" = "" ] then UUDECODE=`which gmime-uudecode 2> /dev/null` if [ "$UUDECODE" = "" ] then echo "No uudecode command found in $PATH, exiting" exit 1 fi fi $UUDECODE -o /tmp/JRSST-2.2.2.jar << "ENDOFJAR" begin 600 /tmp/JRSST-2.2.2.jar M4$L#!!0`"``(`'!G?#X````````````````)``0`345402U)3D8O_LH```,` etc. You could run jrsst that way but i prefer to download the jar file and use this script: #!/bin/sh . ~/.jrsstrc eval feed=\$$1 exec java -jar /home/stormwatch/src/jrsst/JRSST-2.2.2.jar --undecorated=TRUE "$feed" EOF my ~./jrsstrc (note this is NOT the default ~/.jrsst): descargas='--init=file:///home/stormwatch/jrsst/descargas.xml' google='--opml=file:///home/stormwatch/jrsst/google.xml' rss='--init=file:///home/stormwatch/jrsst/rss.xml' EOF finally ~/jrsst/descargas.xml: <?xml version="1.0"?> <jrsst version="2.2.2"> <channel> <url>file:///home/stormwatch/html/feed/atom.xml</url> </channel> </jrsst> EOF ~/jrsst/rss.xml is almost the same but it uses a rss feed instead. Both atom.xml and rss.xml are created by Venus (the successor of Planet) feed aggregator. http://intertwingly.net/code/venus/ google.xml is the opml as exported by Google Reader. This way I can simply type for example 'jrsst descargas' at the command prompt.
