pr2nntp


Overview

pr2nntp is a dated gateway from RSS/Atom feeds to NNTP.

In order for it to work, you’ll need an external NNTP server (usually INN, locally installed on your machine).

The gateway expects .pr2nntp/config file, that can contain a list of subscriptions, for example:

set rss(misc.scott_adams) {
    url {http://feeds.feedburner.com/typepad/ihdT}
}
set rss(misc.dear_lucy) {
    url {http://www.ft.com/rss/management/dear-lucy}
}

If you run

$ pr2nntp -vvs

The gateway will read that file, download & parse feeds, create (if necessary) 2 newsgroups (‘rss.misc.scott_adams’ & ‘rss.misc.dear_lucy’) & post the contents of feeds to newsgroups. It won’t post the same message twice even it you execute pr2nntp many times.

If user deletes an entry from the config file, its corresponding newsgroup will be automatically deleted on the next pr2nntp run.
