feeds2epub not working

Hi guys,

I'm pretty new with calibre and want to try to get the rss feeds from some of my favorite sites. I tried configuring them via GUI, but was not successful; so, I tested the feed via terminal windows, but it did not work as well. I run "feeds2epub" and Below is the error messages I got:

feed://iannnnn.com/feed

Code:
~/Desktop/tmp:feeds2epub feed://iannnnn.com/feed
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Applications/calibre.app/Contents/Resources/loaders/feeds2epub.py", line 9, in <module>
    main()

        ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

feeds2epub doesn't support that syntax. See the section in the User Manula on custom news sources to learn how to create recipes to download your own feeds

Hi Kovid,

Thanks for your fabulous program and your fast reply. I have read the instruction on the user manual and tried to add this custom feeds as a new recipe; however, it is still not working. Calibre still downloads blank page. The page has a lot of Thai characters. At first, I thought that it was because of the text encoding, so I add utf8 encoding, but it still does not work. It is just a RSS feeds, so the page should be simple and I guess that I should not have to modify the recipe that much, but I really don't know why it is not working. Below is my recipe. Do you have any advice?

Thanks,

Code:
class AdvancedUserRecipe1236714135(BasicNewsRecipe):
    title          = u'iannnnn2'
    oldest_article = 7
    max_articles_per_feed = 100
    encoding = 'utf8'    
    feeds          = [(u'iannnnn2', u'feed://iannnnn.com/feed')]

Thanks!

Now I have the feeds properly downloaded to the calibre already. It works perfectly when viewed on calibre. However, all Thai fonts are garbled when viewed from the PRS-505. Why is 'utf8' not working? Is there a way to embedded the Thai font into the fetch directly?

Code:
#!/usr/bin/env  python

import string, re
from calibre import strftime
from calibre.web.feeds.recipes import BasicNewsRecipe
from calibre.ebooks.BeautifulSoup import BeautifulSoup


class iannnnn(BasicNewsRecipe):
    title          = u'iannnnn.com'
    description = 'Blog from iannnnn.com'
    timefmt = ' [%a, %d %b, %Y]'
    oldest_article = 10
    max_articles_per_feed = 100
    no_stylesheets        = True
    use_embedded_content  = False
    remove_javascript     = True
    encoding = 'utf8'
    remove_tags = [dict(name='div', attrs={'id':['nav', 'rss', 'entry', 'searchbox']})]
    remove_tags_after = [dict(name='h3', attrs={'id':'comments'})]
    
    feeds          = [(u'iannnnn', u'http://iannnnn.com/feed')]

It seems that one way to fix this is to install the customized version of firmware into the device. Somehow, I don't really feel that I want to do this way. Is there another option such as embedding the font directly into the recipe?

Now it seems that I have another problem. I flashed my PRS-505 with Thai fonts already. It can read thai fonts from the rtf files now, but It still could not read those feeds from calibre. I presume that function
Code:
encoding = 'utf8'
would tell PRS-505 that the feeds use unicode encoding, which definitely has Thai characters, but I still could not get it to read Thais. Any suggestion?

the encoding setting is for the encoding of the source website/feed. what outpuT format are you using?

I'm using epub format. All Thai fonts at "menu" and "table of contents" are readable. But when I clicked "begin" to read those feeds, thay are all "?????????????".

Try LRF format. You may replaced only LRF fonts during your flashing procedure while epub fonts remained the same. That can be remedied but first let us make sure that that is the problem.

Yep, the LRF works! Hooooo yeah~~~

I wonder why EPUB did not work before. Is it possible that the EPUB format does not support special-encoding characters?

On Sony reader e-books in epub format are rendered by adobe software that uses different set of fonts than what reader uses for LRF format. Flashing procedure replaces only LRF fonts. That is why LRF works and epub not.

For epub to work you need to add following CSS statement in your recipe:

Code:
    extra_css = '@font-face {font-family: "serif1";src:url(res:///opt/sony/ebook/FONT/tt0011m_.ttf)} body{font-family: serif1, serif} .article_description{font-family: serif1, serif} a.article{font-family: serif1, serif}'
