Hi! I wrote this really simple systemd service + timer to run rss2email once an hour for a specified user. I thought maybe it’s interesting for others:

Put both files into /etc/systemd/system/ or /usr/lib/systemd/system/ and systemctl enable rss2email@${USER}.timer

@eworm: if you think this is useful, feel free to package it :)

-- edit 2020-05-12 @eworm suggested that systemd user units might be more convenient for most users, here they are:

Put both files into /usr/lib/systemd/user/ and (as your normal user) systemctl --user enable rss2email.timer to run rss2email once an hour while you’re logged in. See the wiki for instructions on how to run it while you’re not logged in, e.g. a headless machine (or use the system-wide units I posted first)

@eworm thanks so should I change the email protocol from sendmail to what?

eworm commented on 2019-09-17 11:09

I do not have sendmail either. You can configure this in .config/rss2email.cfg

toketin commented on 2019-09-17 11:07

I can't get it working since it seems I don't have Sendmail installed on my system. Why is not required as dependency itself?

[ERROR] cause: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/sbin/sendmail': '/usr/sbin/sendmail'

The package is not unmaintained, I'm kept up to date with releases on both wking's repo and the org rss2email so no worries using GitHub RSS feeds:

The issue is in python-feedparser's, line 855 and 859: sometimes the type of piece is bytes (not str) so startswith fails. But when I fix this I get another error later:

sax parsing error: <unknown>:36:69: not well-formed (invalid token)

No idea what that is about.

Ah, it's apparently not a new issue:

I'll try to find a workaround...

For the past couple of days, when I do `r2e run` I keep getting:

error while running time limited function: startswith first arg must be bytes or a tuple of bytes, not str
cause: startswith first arg must be bytes or a tuple of bytes, not str

Any idea what might be the problem?

3.9 has been out for a while.

Actually it is a fork with fixes and some new features, like IMAP support.
