    MineRSS - RSS Feeds In Minecraft
    Version: v1.3

    MineRSS is a rss fead reader for bukkit. It will work on any rss feed and will broadcast a message ingame of the newest post in the feed.

    On first run it will make a folder inside plugins named MineRSS and a config file called config.properties. In that file you should find something like this:

    Download:
    Build 617+: MineRSS v1.0,
    Build 670+: MineRSS v1.1, MineRSS v1.2, MineRSS v1.2.1, MineRSS v1.3, MineRSS v1.4

    Configuration:
    Code:
    #===MineRSS Configuration===
    #Thu Apr 07 17:57:25 EDT 2011
    Website=url
    NumberofFeeds=1
    
    Replace url with your rss feed url then reload your plugins. The broadcast will happen every 30 minutes as well look for any new posts on the feed.

    Any suggestions or bugs please post bellow and I will be happy to take a look at them.

    Features:
    • Reads from a RSS feed and reports the first post ingame every 30 minutes.
    My RSS feed in the background with the first post broadcasted ingame:

    You should show some pictures and use Craftbukkit builds as an example, Then id get a little taste of what the plugin would be like.

    Was just about to take a picture. Also what do you mean "use Craftbukkit builds as an example" it has the build number in the title and post?

    Updated for build 670

    Hey there, this looks pretty amazing, but I'm curious how you changed the font in the screenshot? I've been looking for a way to do that with Minecraft for ages.

    RSS feed to Bookcases would be a nice touch. Otherwise very nice.

    Does this support the ATOM structure, because I was thinking about using this with phpBB?

    No I didn't even know there was "ATOM" I will look into it

    Edit: Just looked into ATOM and it should work. If you have any problems let me know

    Some config options that would be awesome:
    • Ability to set amount of time between feed posts
    • Ability to add custom prefixes, and hence colors codes
    • Ability to enable/disable the "More info"

    Otherwise, this plugin is great. I was looking for a way to update my "news" all at once, atm I have to post of forums, twitter and then edit my announcer plugin ingame, this would save me loads of time!

    Thanks!

    The plugin appears to trip over this address format: http://username:password@yoursite.xx/forums/feed.php?auth=http

    Yea, I have not found out a way in java to read those addresses with a username and password.

    i'd like to see how you are handling addresses now, and offer suggestions, if i have any..

    Yeah kinda like CratBook's bookcases. I like to use the bookcases to get out info. RSS in NPC's would be awesome too. But that's out of scope here, and I'm now rambling.

    Feature suggestion: Instead of reporting every 30 minutes, report when a player joins (and only to that player).

    Hi,
    I'd like to have new lines within my description, is there a way to force a new line? Thanks.

    Oh and also, would love it if this supported permissions so that only certain users could right click bookcases for the RSS feed.

    look into making http://username:[email protected] work :)

    Would Java's version of Curl work? I haven't seen your code yet... so I don't know how you have it setup...
