After I’ve added newsmangler’s support to my script, I was thinking that I don’t like newsmangler that much. It has no SSL support and it should be a major turn down for anyone, who is security conscious. I don’t want to send my password in a plain text. What about you?
But I didn’t want to learn python just be able to fix this thing myself. I decided to write something similar, but in ruby. And this way sanguinews was born. Feel free to test it and leave some feedback.
Installation is simple. First install nzb library:
gem install nzb
And you will need one other gem:
gem install parseconfig
Then get the latest code from the github:
git clone https://github.com/tdobrovolskij/sanguinews.git
Copy sample.conf to your home directory:
cp sample.conf ~/.sanguinews.conf
Adjust it as needed and run. It accepts pretty much the same options as newsmangler does. It should be compatible with the latest version of my script – v0.85.
If you notice any bug – just leave a comment here or on the github.
P.S. If you are unfamiliar with git, you need to be aware that you need to run git pull inside the projects directory to update the code. Something like this:
cd sanguinews && git pull
