Bug Report: Crash on certain feed

Post by leoing »

Vienna 3.5.8 MacOS 10.15.7

Tried to subscribe to https://flutterevents.com/feed - crashes Vienna after 2 secs (after some spinning wheel = much load). Every re-start again crashed Vienna, because it tries to fetch articles from that feed. Was a bit challenging to remove the feed in time :)

That feed is JSON, not xml. RSS and ATOM are both XML based.

Though there exists a jsonfeed spec https://www.jsonfeed.org/ this feed does not adhere to and seems to be it's own cooked up format.

According to the page source the feed url should be: https://flutterevents.com/app/feed

You posted https://flutterevents.com/feed


I successfully subscribed to https://flutterevents.com/ and vienna presented me with the 2059 items in that feed.

Thanks for the hints, unfortunately those other feeds are too cluttered, no real event feed.

The issue stands - no malformed feed should be able to crash your nice project ;)
