An RSS Feed Reader for Snarl

Download

 

Install

To install, simply copy sandstorm.exe to a suitable folder.  Note that you must also have the .net 4.0 Framework installed.

Running

To launch, open a Command Prompt and navigate to the folder you copied the sandstorm.exe into.  Then run sandstorm using:

c:> sandstorm.exe

Configuring

Out of the box, Sandstorm does not include any pre-configured feeds.  To create feeds, first create a file called sandstorm.conf in the same folder as the sandstorm executable.  You can paste the following in to get you started:

[0]
url=http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/rss.xml?edition=uk
title=BBC News
icon=

Note that the icon parameter is optional and will be used instead of the feed’s default icon if defined.  Also note that each feed you add must be within its own section and the section block (“[0]” in the above example) must be unique for each.
