"Subscribe" URL?

I've found subscribing to new feeds is a bit of a pain. In Firefox, I click on the little RSS feed in the address bar which adds a Live bookmark. Then I have to edit the live bookmark to get the actual feed address. Then I open ttrss and add a feed, entering the address and such.

I've found an extension which simplifies things somewhat, LiveLines. It lets you copy the feed URL to the clipboard, or submit it to various feed readers.

One option is to submit the feed to a URL. Is there some URL that I can submit to within TTRSS that'll subscribe to a new feed, like "http://myserver.com/ttrss/subscribe.php?feed=http://otherserver.com/feed.xml"?

Yep, Firefox authors didn't make this easy. Unfortunately, neither can I - the software is downloadable, I can't just make "add to tt-rss" button a-la bloglines.

Anyway, try this URL:

Code: Select all

PATH_TO_TTRSS/backend.php?op=pref-feeds&subop=add&quiet=1&feed_url=YOUR_URL


One thing: if you have multiuser mode enabled, you need to be logged on.

subscribing with a "&" in the url

How can I use the URL you specified above

Code: Select all

PATH_TO_TTRSS/backend.php?op=pref-feeds&subop=add&quiet=1&feed_url=YOUR_URL

if

Code: Select all

YOUR_URL
contains "&".

e.g. http://www/mywebpage?a=1&rss=1

all that gets to the feed is: http://www/mywebpage?a=1

It seems like ttrss doesnt parse it correctly and assumes the & is a separator for its arguments.

Otherwise congratulation on the terrific application.

Sam.

This should have nothing to do with tt-rss per se. You need to properly urlencode() URL parameters like web-browser does, which would take care of ampersands and such.

I have actually been working on this

I have a working bookmarklet for tiny tiny rss that lets me simply click on it, its autodetects <link rel="alternate" tags in the page and let me subscribe to the feed. Its currently being cleanup up a bit, but i expect to post it here by Sunday night (GMT) at latest. The way it works should allow it to be included in any copy of ttrss so users can just drag it to the bookmark toolbar in firefox.

Actually you can make the Firefox RSS icon open tt-rss.

Edit: I just noticed this it already in the wiki at http://tt-rss.spb.ru/trac/wiki/Firefox20Integration.
Sorry for the useless post.
