Yes, I'd say that's reasonable. :)

Try adding the following inside the ParseSpecialCharacters function:

Code: Select all

function ParseSpecialCharacters(sString)
	sString = string.gsub(sString, '\"', '')
	if string.match(sString, 'Google Reader') then
		sString = string.match(sString, '"(.-)" via .- in Google Reader')
	end
	return sString
end

No, that just broke the feed/s altogether.
Not to worry, thanks as always.

Hmph. I'll take a look using one of my own Google Reader feeds, then - they might be doing something evil. But there's no reason why this shouldn't be soluble.

You can simplify a couple of your functions.

Code: Select all

function SwitchToNext()
	iCurrentFeed = iCurrentFeed%iNumberOfFeeds + 1
	SKIN:Bang('!SetVariable "'..sVariablePrefix..'CurrentFeed" "'..iCurrentFeed..'"')
	Update()
end

function SwitchToPrevious()
	iCurrentFeed = iCurrentFeed - 1 + (iCurrentFeed ==1 and iNumberOfFeeds or 0)
	SKIN:Bang('!SetVariable "'..sVariablePrefix..'CurrentFeed" "'..iCurrentFeed..'"')
	Update()
end

Thanks. (Someday I'm going to stop faking it and relearn all those math operators that I forgot after freshman-year Calculus.)

Hi Kaelri,

I really like your Evereader, so I installed it and customized it to my needs (as you can see in the screenshot). It works perfectly, but the in the About section you can read this:

How can I solve that error:matching? I have seen it displaying Success! a couple of times, and I can't understand yet the pattern at which the output changes.

Thanks. :)

There's no actual problem, fortunately. This happens because the Script measures are only updated once every 10 minutes. And the first time they run is before the WebParser measures have finished downloading your feeds - so there is, for a few milliseconds, a genuine matching error, and that message doesn't get updated until the next update, ten minutes later. (Every other time the script runs - either when you press one of the buttons, or when the WebParser measures finish - it's called by a !CommandMeasure bang, which means the measure value does not update.)

If it really bothers you, you can change the script measures from "UpdateDivider=600" to "Disabled=1". Then they'll just show up as "0.0" in the About window.

Given that there is no functional problem, I have no problem with it either. :) Thanks a lot for the super fast reply!

Hey, this looks cool...nice work! Any way it could be adapted to display entries from multiple RSS/XML/ical/whatever feeds in the same window, instead of cycling between each feed source?
