Yes, looks very good :) :) :) Great, thank you! Now I'm back to TT-RSS (used it for many years) and have nearly the same workflow as with Google Reader and my favourite native RSS apps.

Well I woke up to several dozen new items in my various feeds today, and I read them, switching randomly between Mr. Reader on the iPad, Reeder on the iPhone, and the web app on my computer. Read/unread statuses synced over perfectly and everything seems to be working fine.

One question I have...

Does the fever API only sync un-read articles with a client such as Reeder or Mr. Reader? To me, I'd think that even articles marked as read would show up in the articles list after a sync, but they don't.

I experience this on both Reeder (iPhone) and Mr. Reader (iPad). I'm using v1.4.5 fever plugin, running tt-rss 1.8 & a mysql DB. I'm not sure if this is how the functionality was designed, but figured I'd ask...

First of all, I wanted to thank the devs for their work on this plugin. I'd never used Reeder before, but this works very nicely and allows for locally caching content on my phone. :D

While I'm not a developer, I have a quick question about the way the plugin has been developed. I quickly looked at the source, and it has a lot of direct SQL queries. It seems that these could be "fragile" if the tt-rss database schema were to change between versions. Is this method in place because there are aspects of the Fever API that can't be handled by the existing tt-rss API?

Cheers.

Yeah I didn't like the look of this either when I first tried out this plugin. Direct SQL makes me think it'll break in the future, or maybe conflict with something tt-rss itself does, or not tidy up the database properly when you delete a post, etc. etc.

If you are developing this going forward (and I salute you for that!) I have a couple of other niggles I would like to ask about. Is it possible you could alter the plugin so that it allows it to work when symlinked? I like to keep the tt-rss/plugins/ directory clean and I have another local directory (tt-rss/local/plugins/) I install all my own extra stuff into. I then symlink the plugins & themes etc into the main tt-rss directories. But this plugin doesn't like that. I assume because of the use of ../ type things. Might be better to do something like $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/blah'? Also favicons on a lot of my feeds don't work too well. They either don't show a favicon, or they show the wrong one. I guess this might not be fixable as I assume what's happening is reeder is trying to load the favicon direct from the website rather than using the one in tt-rss? Although it did used to work fine when using the google reader API, so I'm not totally sure on this one.
