Fetch News and recipes

Some RSS feeds

Builtin feeds that do not work

  • US and World Report news
  • Wired Magazine (monthly ed)
  • Discover Magazine

The recipes files (*.recipe) and the <index.json> file are saved in $HOME/.config/calibre/custom_recipes. They can be loaded through 'Add custom news source' dialog.

Tips

  • Calibre will show the file size for each title/recipe. If the title is too large, send to kindle may not work (>40MB not work but 27MB works)
  • Each recipe has two parameters: oldest article (how many days) and max # of articles per feed (default is 100). Since all recipes are scheduled to download every day, I can set 1 day for the oldest article.

A commercial service Keendly does it for a fee.

Remove a schedule download

Check the checkbox 'Schedule for download' at the top of source.
