Curn | RSS Reader

clipped from
curn: Customizable Utilitarian RSS Notifier
curn is an RSS reader. It scans a configured set of URLs, each
one representing an RSS feed, and summarizes the results. By default,
curn keeps track of individual items within each RSS feed, using an
on-disk cache; when using the cache, it will suppress displaying information
for items it has already processed (though that behavior can be disabled).
curn supports several output formats; you can configure
one or more output handlers in curn's
configuration file.

curn's plain text output is
curn supports, and uses internally, the
FreeMarker template engine;
you can easily generate another output format by
writing your own FreeMarker template.
