  1. Is WebSub the future?

    I just heard about this;
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebSub

    Will BazQux provide WebSub support in the future?

  2. Adjust mobile PWA to leave system controls visible

    The mobile PWA is working great for me, except for one thing: the manifest.json applies "display": "fullscreen", so when I enter bazqux from my homescreen shortcut my mobile top bar and bottom nav controls get hidden. To get them back I have to swipe at the edges of my screen, which makes bazqux scroll around and mark things as read.

    Could bazqux please be adjusted to use a different display value such as standalone?

    Done.

    “display” mode switched “standalone”.

    Thank you for telling me about this. Haven’t thought that it could be inconvenient on Android.

    To make “display” updated on your device you need to remove BazQux icon from home screen, refresh page in Chrome and add it to home screen again.

  3. Filter by subreddit flair

    Is there a way to filter a subreddit RSS by a certain flair?

    For example, I'd like to read only "News / Blog" entries from r/thinkpad. These submissions can be accessed using this URL: https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/?f=flair_name%3A%22News%20%2F%20Blog%22

  4. Synchronization error with favorites in Readably (Android App)

    Currently there seem to be synchronization problems with Readably.

    New Favourite posts are synchronized across all devices, Unfavourite posts are not synchronized across the different devices.

    Is the error with Bazqux or Readably?

  6. Feed Creator from fivefilters

    Fivefilters has a new feed creator https://createfeed.fivefilters.org/
    The full text RSS is already available on https://ftr.bazqux.com/

    Is it possible to enable feed creator also?

  7. Automatic dark/light mode switching

    I'm using macOS, which can automatically switch to dark mode at certain times (by set time frames).

    Many native apps will then also switch automatically.

    It would be nice if BazQuz would do that also. Eg. there are already quite a number of websites who do that; eg. https://www.macstories.net

    Done.

    Reader should automatically switch to dark theme now. And you could choose theme for dark and light mode separately (theme switcher will select theme for dark mode when OS is set to dark mode and vice versa).

  8. Support for NetNewsWire 5 on macOS

    Really excited for the “return” of (Free!) NetNewsWire 5.0 (Evergreen 1.0) to macOS; it’s based on open source with Bent Simmons in command. He is offering free support for feeds integration; you are invited to join the Github repository and Slack channel where they will help “get you started” with integrating your feed. I would really, really love to use NNN on Mac, despite your amazing support in Safari. It just does so much more in terms of styling and organization, not to mention niceties like AppleScript support. Cheers. — F

  9. Support the project (donate)

    Could you add info about how to support BazQux (PayPal is better) as help item?

    I bought a lifetime subscription few years ago, but I would like to support development the project periodically

  10. Distinguish threaded tweets and replies

    Currently self-replies (aka tweets from threads) become invisible once you subscribe with exclude_replies parameter, so you could miss huge parts of long-lasting threads

  11. Better initial naming for socialmedia feeds

    I think currently newly added socialmedia feeds are getting redundant names. It will be better if they will get only nickname as their names, for example:

    currently → offer

    Twitter / danabramov → @danabramov
    Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) → @kimkardashian
    and etc.

  12. Add link in image to open in new tab by middleclicking

    Since the death of Google Reader in 2013 I am using a competitor of yours, but this month they announced changes in plans and I'm trying alternatives. Of all that I've found, BazQux is the only one with the features I need (besides the reader that I use).

    For now, there's only two little (but essential) things I'm missing:

    • In "List view", the title (bold) should link to the article URL. But just for middleclick (that I use a lot). Left click (onclick) should continue expanding the article.

    • Similar to the first one, images in "Mosaic view" and "Magazine View"…

    Done.

    I haven’t added the link since it will work bad on mobile browser but I’ve added handling of middle click (and ctrl + left click) on list view header (whole header not only subject) and mosaic/magazine view images.

    It will require you to install browser extension to open links in background tab (same extension that installed when you press ‘b’ key), since browsers do not allow to programmatically open links in background tabs.

    Thank you for the idea. Haven’t used mouse for many years and forgot about such use case.

  13. Middleclick link in mosaic view should mark item as read

    I always middleclick links to open in background tab. The clicked item should be marked as read.

    Note.: unread item and selected item (collapsed) are indistinguishable in mosaic view, except by 1px vertical line on the left. This leads me to think that the selected item is still unread, when it's just selected. I'll change this here with userStyle (as I'm also writing a userScript to add some features I want), but maybe this should be changed in the site itself.

    Fixed. Thank you for reporting this (haven’t used mouse for years so I completely forgot about middle click). Refresh the page, please.

    I’ll think about mosaic read/unread state. Can’t decide at the moment how to do it better.

  14. Upload background tab webextension to the addons.mozilla.org

    It would be nice to have official support for Firefox. I was able to copy the chrome extension and install it with no code changes. I used the "self distribution" feature to take care of this for myself, and I'd be happy to make that public. However... if I were someone else I'd prefer to get it from you.

    Thanks!

  15. Facebook Videos

    Facebook seems to have changed something because videos are not embedded anymore on Bazqux. Instead you just get a preview link. Could you look into it?

    In case you need a page to work with, here's an account with a bunch of video posts. https://www.facebook.com/TheHookOfficial/

    Done.

    Channels are fetched using scraping of t.me/s… web pages. Some channels (mostly music related) are not available on those pages.

    Perhaps, some elements aren’t scraped correctly yet.

    Please, test and report channels and posts that aren’t shown well.


    Russian users of Telegram, please, read how government and corporations control most popular channels
    https://www.proekt.media/narrative/telegram-kanaly/
    I strongly recommend to not read news in Telegram. Read professional journalists: novayagazeta.ru, meduza.io or resources which post many opinions like echo.msk.ru

  17. Support a new tablet mode

    With the proliferation of Windows Surface tablets, I was very surprised when I got my new Samsung Chromebook Plus that BazQux doesn't seem to have a tablet mode.

    Is it possible to enhance the GUI a bit to make it easier to navigate on a tablet? Bigger Next/Previous button (maybe even swiping like News+)?

    I spend at least an hour per day in BazQux, so this would really enhance my experience.

  18. possibility of multi-search for smartstream, or better regex

    http://siwego.net/grf/regex.jpg

    is there a way, to search for e.g. "cd project" and "cdproject" in one search? since wildcards works at edges of word well, "cd?project" nor "cd*project" seems not working to output both results..

  20. Show current status of BQ service subscription, pay at any time

    Hi Vladimir,

    It would be great to see a current status of service subscription since pricing doesn't have a 19/29 USD options only. For example: "subscription active until 31/12/2015".

    And maybe you should consider an ability to pay for a subscription at any time, not by month before subscription ends.
