Liferea - GTK desktop news aggregator


liferea [OPTIONS]


Liferea (Linux Feed Reader) is an aggregator for online news feeds. It can be used to
maintain a list of subscribed feeds, browse and search through their items and displays
their contents. Additionally Liferea allows one to sync subscriptions and read headlines
with online accounts of Google Reader and TinyTinyRSS.


Liferea options:

Print version information and exit

--help Display a option overview and exit

-a, --add-feed=URI
Add a new subscription URI which can be a feed or website URL

-w, --mainwindow-state=STATE
Start Liferea with its mainwindow in STATE: shown, iconified, hidden

Enables HTML rendering debugging. Each time Liferea renders HTML output it will
also dump the generated HTML into $XDG_CACHE_DIR/liferea/output.xhtml.

Print debugging messages of all parsing functions

To allow integration with other programs Liferea profives a DBUS interface for automatic
creation of new subscriptions. The script liferea-add-feed is a convenient way to use this
interface. Just pass a valid feed URL as parameter and the feed will be added to the feed
list. You can also pass non-feed URLs to use feed auto discovery. Example:

liferea-add-feed "http://www.newsforge.com/newsforge.rss"

Please note that Liferea needs to be running for liferea-add-feed to work.


If a proxy is not specified in the Liferea preferences (which uses the proxy
settings provided by dconf), then Liferea will use the proxy specified in
$http_proxy. $http_proxy should be set to a URI specifying the desired proxy, for
example ‘http://proxy.example.com:3128/’.
