Canto

Canto

Canto is an Atom/RSS feed reader for the console that is meant to be quick, concise, and colorful.

It supports all major news formats RSS/RDF and Atom, as well as importing from and exporting to OPML. The news content is easily downloadable and as such Canto also has limited podcasting support.

It is intended to allow users to crank through feeds by providing a minimal, yet information packed interface.

There is no navigating menus, and no dense blocks of unreadable white text. An interface with almost infinite customization and extensibility using the excellent Python programming language. Everything used to configure Canto is actually part of the Python interpreter.

 Canto 0.8.4
