rawdog RSS reader (not working yet)

So I was trying to find a good RSS reader for my Kindle, and I found rawdog. It is a python program that uses pymodules?? I have some of the work done, I don't know how to get the path right to call python and have the modules in place? If there is anyone with some skills in this, I would appreciate your looking at it!

I have 2 test feeds in the config file - lifehacker and instructables. you can easily add more or less even from a command line. With some massaging of the style.css file, the output could be customized to show the html output better.

I also am trying to show the output file in the default browser using the lipc..browser.. file:///... format, but that isn't working right either?

Everything's pure python, so you can do it from the Kindle itself. No need to play with the env/paths, the latest Python package handles everything, and symlinks python in the default PATH.

* Install setuptools: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/setupto...n-instructions
* Install feedparser: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/feedparser
* Install rawdog: http://offog.org/code/rawdog/

(If you're unfamiliar with python modules, the install procedure is usually
Code:
python setup.py install
in the root of the project source tree .)

(Well, you might want to D/L the tarballs yourself, and push them on your device manually, unless you have a decent wget/curl in your PATH).

Code:
[root@kindle us]# /mnt/us/python/bin/rawdog --help
rawdog, version 2.17

Thank you! You are definately the 'Python Master'!

edit: all installed fine. AWESOME! Now I can try some other python stuff maybe?

Now - when I get an html file of the feeds, I have no great way to open the browser and read it. I can:
- create a bookmark to the file
- use a different browser (skipstone or elinks or ??)
- convert html to txt or pdf or mobi

What would YOU do?

I can't get this to install: pyrite-publisher
http://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/cdimage....1.orig.tar.gz
which should allow me to convert the html to a .prc or .mobi file?

I can't make feeds download, but I've seen that the showfeed.sh script contains an error: it must run this code to open the downloaded feed in the browser: lipc-set-prop -s com.lab126.appmgrd start app://com.lab126.browser?view=file:///...
