Setting up elfeed for RSS feeds
elfeed is awesome!
I blogged about how I use elfeed to manage all my RSS feeds and read them in the distractionless Emacs window.
This post is about setting up elfeed.
In Doom Emacs. You just enable/uncomment the
rss app in
init.el, and configure the RSS sources either with the
(setq elfeed-feeds ...) directly, or with
+org and configure in
~/org/elfeed.org (I preferred the latter).
If you are not in Doom Emacs, follow elfeed doc to set it up. Their README is straight forward.
The usage is simple:
You can do instant search by pressing the
s key, read a feed by pressing enter, or mark a feed as read, and press
g to refresh the list.
One quirk I learned is that, elfeed don’t really delete your feed. If you don’t want to see them as again, just mark the feed as read, and refresh.
