    I know it's been talked about a little in the forums, but I was just curious if any dev's have looked at updating Feeder's API from Google Reader to The Old Reader?

    Feeder webOS

    The Old Reader API

    I would love to myself, but it would likely take me much longer than it would others on this forum.
    Just a thought.

    Exciting news! I took a look at the API this morning, and have downloaded the source code for Feeder, and I now have a build that (mostly) works.

    What works? All the basics:

    - Loading Subscriptions
    - Reading Articles
    - Marking articles as read/unread
    - Marking all articles in a subscription as read/unread
    - Sharing via email/sms
    - Adding/Removing Subscriptions

    What doesn't work:

    - "Star"ing or "Like"ing items. This is a limitation of the API, and cannot be fixed until the API is updated.
    - Sharing items via The Old Reader's "shared" feed. This is also a limitation of the API and cannot be fixed until the API is updated.
    - Logging in via your Google/Facebook account (OAuth). Again, limitation of the API. At the moment, you can set a password in The Old Reader's web interface and log in using that.

    What needs to be updated:

    - The list of Twitter apps to share to (ie. Spaz is dead due to API changes)
    - Some of the non email/sms sharing options.

    What happens next:

    1. I have to go through and do a bit of work to disable the non-working features in the UI. I can re-enable them when the API is updated.
    2. I will post a working build as soon as point 1 has been fixed.
    3. I will then work on updating the things that need to be updated and go from there.

    In the meantime:

    The working title for the fork is "The Old Feeder". It's punny, I know, but I don't have a better idea. If anyone can suggest a better name, I am all ears.

    Here we go - it works!

    An ipk is below, and you can check out the source at

    One catch - in order to be able to log in using the api, you need to set a password for your account on The Old Reader on your settings page. Then, just log in using your email address and the password that you set.

    I've set up an "official" thread for the app over here:
