[READ CAREFULLY] Google Reader Sync

Postby ansani » Thu Jan 12, 2012 5:21 pm

Hi guys!
I made some change on Vienna to add support for Google Reader and other small updates (some speedup on network sockets and a queue indicator).
I released a beta version there: http://ansani.it/vienna/ViennaBeta2699.1.zip

This is NOT (by now) an officially beta but is SPARKLE enabled so, when (and if) changes are pushed to BETA channel all will be transparent for users.

If you want to use this beta FIRST OF ALL backup all your settings/article:
Library/Application Support/Vienna

If you have some bugs / requests / suggestions, just drop a line there or msg me!

Tnx for your time,
Salvatore Ansani

Thanks for all your work, Salvatore!

I'm curious if this release has solved the problem with 2.6, mentioned here:

viewtopic.php?f=18&t=23907&start=0

namely, the inability to open articles within the internal Vienna browser.

Thanks!

Crashes on me (SnowLeopard 10.6.8)

ViennaBeta requires libcurl version 7.0.0 or later, but on my machine libcurl.4.dylib provides version 6.0.0

Tnx for your testing,

Great work!
I have noticed that the flagged articles (those flagged in Vienna) do not show as flagged in Google Reader. If you flag the article in GR, it does show as flagged in Vienna; it doesn't seem to work the other way. A minor foible to be sure, but one that would be nice if it worked. Or maybe it does and I am just a 'tard.

Running the latest build, btw, under Lion.

Uhm... I just tested with my subscriptions and it worked. You don't see starred articles on google reader dashboard or on Google Reader Feed ?

Tnx for feedback,
Salvatore

D'oh! I was running an older version of your Vienna. You are quite correct, they flagging is working as intended.

Hurray! This was pretty much the only thing missing (the Google Reader synch) from this great RSS reader.

Thanks.

Hi,

First, thank you for the work on syncing with Google Reader!

I have just installed version 2800.5, but it's not working for me. I can successfully log into my Google account, and it picks up various rss feeds from there. But a lot of them just keep on spinning, and when I look into the activity window I see for example:
Connecting to Google Reader to retrieve http://www.loopinsight.com/
Error: Feed not found!
That address is not correct. If I check in reader.google.com, the actual address used is http://www.loopinsight.com/feed/

Some other feeds works just fine, for example:
Connecting to Google Reader to retrieve http://www.macobserver.com/rss/macobserver.rdf
4635 bytes received

Any ideas?

Kind regards,
Ben

hi benst!
unfortunately this is a bug I discovered for all sites that have the word "feed" on their RSS url. I yet fixed this bug on my local build and plan to release soon.

Sorry for this issue :(

Hi,

I checked 'Subscribe local RSS feeds on Google reader' in the preferences, but it doesn't seem to do anything. And if I quit Vienna and start it up again, the checkmark is gone.

Also, is it possible to delete a Google rss feed from within Vienna? I tried deleting one in Vienna, refreshed reader.google.com, but it was still there.

Kind regards,
Ben

I'm sure your aware already, but there appears to be a HUGE memory Leak in at least beta 5.

It tops 1GB after about an hour. Ive seen it go as far as 4GB. This is pretty consistent. I have set my refresh to 5 seconds which might increase the speed in which used memory grows.

Maybe I am stupid but what I can see my Vienna beta has no effect what so ever on Google reader other than getting the login and permission screen at first launch. Made a fresh install of 2800.5.

Hi. It's crashing on me too. How did you fix this problem? Thank you, sorry for my bad English. I hope someone on this site can help me.

BUG (minor): ViennaBeta3.0b.2817

This beta (for my architecture) is the best so far. GR synch is nearly flawless.

The bug I mention is every time I open ViennaBeta (3.0b.2817) I am asked to allow OAuth2 confidential information so it can retrieve (synch) GR feeds. I always choose "Always Allow", but every time I open ViennaBeta, it asks me again.

This is such a minor aggravation...I'm certain someone else will mention it, and I'm not certain I'm posting it in the correct forum section. Frankly, I don't mind, too much, being asked to verify synchronization every time. But knowing the "Always Allow" button isn't working should be mentioned, nonetheless. I'd bet you are going to ask me to delete the OAut2 from my keychain, then reopen ViennaBeta and reauthorize the synch.

Hi all

Downloaded the BETA (3.0b.2819) yesterday and all was fine. The 100 odd feeds I had in 2.6.0.2601 were all available in the BETA. The problem came when I enabled Google Reader Sync. This brought down all my old google feeds and that's fine but when I opened the BETA the next time all the subscriptions that came from the Google Sync worked fine, but all the subscriptions I had in Vienna already stopped syncing. So this afternoon after checking the BETA again to make sure it wasn't operator error :p I went back to Vienna 2.6.0.2601 and there were all the feeds from Google and all the feeds I had in previously - and they all synced! In the BETA it's only the subscriptions that have come in via Google that Sync and pull down new feeds.

One other thing, the progress icon on the toolbar never stops spinning in the BETA, even after the progress next to every feed has.

Architecture: 2 x 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Inel Xeon Mac Pro 26GB 1066 MHz DDR3

Any ideas/thoughts?

Many thanks

Rob

How is this supposed to be working? I exported all my feeds to OPML, went into google reader, deleted everything there then imported my opml db so that gReader would have the same feeds I'd been using. I cleared them all out of Vienna then checked sync with reader. I get a small window that allows me to log into my google account, and a check box (which is checked) keep me logged in, and I sign in. Then I'm presented with a screen that will allow Vienna to access google reader, which I select yes for. Then I'm presented with a window that has a long alphanumeric string in it and told to copy the code, then paste it into the application in the next window - but no matter what I do - there's no next - it just keeps telling me that verification failed and I've seen no where to paste the code into.

Obviously I'm missing something. Can someone help me out here?

edit: Never mind, had to enable java in the preferences before authentication would take.
