Sunrise 0.3.1 released

I just released Sunrise 0.3.1. You can now invoke "Send to Sunrise" from within Internet Explorer. I don't use IE as my main browser, but indirectly I use it through FeedDemon, which uses IE as an embedded control. I can now read news articles and immediately send them to Sunrise!

This version also adds support for basic authentication. This lets you access password-protected sites.

Is Sunrise capable of trimming sites? Maybe in the "Advanced" tab of document properties?
If this is possible, I'm switching right now.

Yes, it can, and it can do this very well. The functionality is completely undocumented, though.

Sunrise can use XSL transformation to strip away unnecessary clutter such as navigation bars and advertisements. A good example is the SDL for The Register. It uses a stylesheet that extracts only the article headlines, leaving everything else out. Look in the "examples" subdirectory of the Sunrise installation and open the "the-register.sdl" in Sunrise Desktop.

It might take a while before I get round to documenting this. Development takes priority right now.

Wow, so it can effectively function like Sitescooper? Pretty sweet. I'd like to have a look at that...

Laurens, I know that I'm jumping the gun a bit here, but what are the chances that your commercial product will also be available for Pocket PC? Am I just dreaming?

I hope to release a PPC version of my viewer at the end of the first quarter of next year. (In other words: around March 2005.) This date is of course tentative. Still, developing for PPC is a good deal easier than it is for Palm OS, so I don't expect any major obstacles there.

Further down the line, there might also be a version for SymbianOS. This depends on user demand.

I think that the version at palmgear is mistakenly version 2.1. I downloaded what claimed to be sunrise_031a_setup.exe. After installing help says it version 0.2.1 and I get a consistent message when I uninstalled it. The file size is the same for sunrise_031a_setup.exe and sunrise0.2.1setup.exe (both 3147KB).

Thanks for all your efforts. I'm enjoying the improvements over JPluck!

I downloaded Sunrise yesterday from PalmGear and had not any of those problems. The downloaded file is 3.23MB long.

BTW I'm reading tutorials on XML and XSLT, to see if I can trim my own sites.

You're right. I've seen this problem on PalmGear before, but I tried out the download this morning and it was indeed 0.3.1a. Somehow it has reverted back to 0.2.1.

I've mirrored the 0.3.1.a distribution on my ISP's homepage webspace. I'm going to open my own site soon.

If you're interested, you can also look at the link rewriting feature available through scripting. This lets you change links on-the-fly so that they point to printable versions of articles. Scripting is much simpler than XSLT and it's also documented(open "Help Contents" from within Sunrise). There are several example SDLs in the distribution that use link rewriting, including NY Times and Brighthand.

I'd like to try out the new image conversion processing using imagemagik but I can't find settings to select it over the "standard" method. Are there any instructions associated with this feature?

The more I read about Sunrise, the more I drool! I've been aching for some simple way to do something like link modification. Would love it if I could also use the current date in the new version of the link (e.g. use various components like day or dd or mm or mon or month or yyyy etc with either the numbers or common spelled out versions like Sep or sep or 09 or 9 or September etc.)

Can't wait to give it a go after I buy my new Palm. (Probably the T5 rumored to be in the product database for Staples already!)

Ok, I'm really excited now.
I need to combine two script instructions, append and replace. How do I do that?
I.e. I need to change links of this type:

http://www.xxxxx.com/aaa/bbb/ccc/

Into this:

http://www.xxxxx.com/ddd/print.asp?hand=6&page=../aaa/bbb/ccc/default.html

what about this:
Code:
document.onanchorlink = function(link) {
	link.uri = link.uri.replace("http://www.xxxxx.com/aaa/bbb/ccc/", "http://www.xxxxx.com/ddd/print.asp?hand=6&page=../aaa/bbb/ccc/");
	link.uri += "default.html";
};
I doesn't work, but maybe my fault is somewhere else.

It works.
I have a different problem now. In preferences I specified the path to my cookies, but apparently, Sunrise is not using them. What might be the problem?
I use Firefox, btw.
