Fetch new RSS feed items and send them via E-Mail.


Install the dependencies:

  • Rust
  • scdoc (optional)

Then compile rss-email:

cargo build

To build the man page, use scdoc:

scdoc < docs/rss-email.1.scd > docs/rss-email.1


  • Copy the config.example.toml to ~/rss-email/config.toml and adjust the values
  • Create a urls file at ~/rss-email/urls with one RSS url per line

The database used with rss-email is generated automatically if it doesn't exist yet

See the man page or -h for more info. You can view the man page after generating it with scdoc with man -l docs/rss-email.1.

Stripped binaries are available on tags or builds from up to 90 days ago.
