Canto-fetch - A quiet feed fetcher.


Canto-fetch is designed to be run through a cron job, every minute. Every time it's run, it checks the timestamp on each index file and updates the feed, if necessary. The format it produces is a simple UTF-8 encoded, NULL delimited text file on disk, readable by the canto client.


Canto-fetch is meant to be used through a cron, adding this line to your crontab will cause canto-fetch to poll every minute.

* * * * * canto-fetch

Alternatively, if you're unable/uncomfortable using cron, canto-fetch has a background daemon mode so you can invoke it in your X session scripts. Just use

canto-fetch -b


These options correspond to options to the canto client.
-h / --help
Print usage and quit.
-v / --version
Print version and quit.
-V / --verbose
Output status while updating.
-d / --daemon
Continue to check for updates every minute. Mostly for debugging with -V, users probably want -b to background.
-b / --background
Detach from the terminal (implies -d)
-f / --force
Force updates on all feeds, ignoring timestamps.
-C / --conf [PATH]
Set path to configuration file (default: ~/.canto/conf)
-F / --fdir [PATH]
Set path to feed directory (default: ~/.canto/feeds/)
-L / --log [PATH]
Set path to log (default: ~/.canto/fetchlog)

None known, but it's not outside of the realm of possibility =P.
