Thanks! Have you released v14 yet? I can't find a link to it anywhere in the content forum now...

I went to the wiki after importing didn't work. After the wiki I started experimenting - ended up spending a couple of hours messing around to try and find out what was up...

Looking forward to a working copy...

Instead of a focus on grabbing the content from the pages, it could be interesting to use something like this: http://www.dappit.com
You can then generate the RSS with all the information you need and just create a PDF out of it.

Just took the time to really read this and get this working. This is a marvelous tool. If I had a suggestion it would be to disable the publish button or add a double-dare. I keep hitting it by mistake and it would seem (from the subscription list) that I am not alone.

Thanks GeekRaver !!!!

Am I missing it, or did the link to the app go away from this thread in the last couple of days?

I would love to try this, but is the file missing from the first message?

BettyE and Noads speak the truth... the rss2book installer is -- gulp -- missing! I'm sending Geekraver a note, now.

Oops - my bad for finishing up r14 in the wee hours and not checking what I was doing when I edited the initial post - it is back now.

I've tried already, but mono dies on some unimplemented features of Windows.Forms. It might be possible to rework aspects to avoid using Windows.Forms features that are not implemented in mono, or share the backend and write another front end using Gtk#. Never used .NET myself, but I'd definitely spend some time trying to get it working if the code was available!
When I have time to figure out how to give read-only access to my Subversion server I'll make the code available again.

All files needed to install RSS2BOOK

Geekraver,

What an amazing program! Thanks.

A lot of members have been looking for the files necessary to install RSS2BOOK. There are links in this extended thread - some are not working and others don't seem to work (for example, I tried installing the program with HTMLDOC version 1.8.28 and RSS2BOOK did not seem to like it. Version 1.8.25 worked fine).

Any reason we can't aggregate all the necessary files and make them available from one consistent download site?

(If we have the appropriate permission, I have all the files zipped together and would be glad to upload it here or elsewhere)

After all the work that Geekraver has done, more people should have access to it. It makes the reader all that more powerful.

I'm using 1.8.27; I haven't tried 1.8.28. 1.8.25 is more stable that 1.8.27, IIRC - 1.8.27 often crashes when generating a TOC that is too large.

I'm not sure whether there are licensing issues with redistributing htmldoc; I assumed there were which is why I never bundled it.

BTW I want to comment on my .sig - the Windows Live Search client for Windows Mobile is what I work on in my day job (fortunately assisted by another fantastic developer). Anyone who has a Windows Mobile phone should try it; it is great (and free). We have a cool J2ME version too for other phones (unfortunately not Blackberry yet, but that will come).

I've just uploaded release 15. No real changes except that when you publish feeds a check will be done to see if the feed already exists. I encourage people to use this to help avoid the duplication of published feeds.

What a great project!

With regards to content, just as a lateral thought, would it be possible, e.g., to somehow connect to AvantGo? They have a plethora of good quality content that is already formatted for "small screen" devices...

Keep up the good work!

I do plan to set up a bug report/feature request site soon, and also add automatic updating. Not sure how reliable the electricity supply is going to be in the next few days in the Seattle area with the mother of all storms moving in, but hopefully it will be done real soon.
