TTRSS UTILS - Fedora Tiny Tiny RSS Utilities

I've decided to standardize my group of utilities for TTRSS.  My original intent on posting all these updates in the blog was to help folks get config samples, utilities and installation/configuration information in an easy and straightforward manner.

The blog entries will continue, but I'm changing the way code samples and utilities are organized and distributed.

All files will now be hosted on bitbucket:

https://gbcox@bitbucket.org/gbcox/ttrss_utils.git

You would install them in your home directory by:
  1. cd $home
  2. mkdir ttrss_maint
  3. cd ttrss_maint
  4. git clone https://gbcox@bitbucket.org/gbcox/ttrss_utils.git
Now, if you wish to get the latest copy of the utilities, it is simple as:
  1. cd $home/ttrss_maint/ttrss_utils
  2. git pull
Before you start using any of the utilities, you must configure a set of variables which are unique to your system.
  1. cd $home
  2. cd ttrss_maint
  3. cp  ttrss_utils/src_var_ttrss_dist src_var_ttrss
  4. vim src_var_ttrss
  5. ===> Edit the file ===<
  6. :wq
The $home/ttrss_maint directory will contain other subdirectories relating to different functions; i.e. the database backup utility files will be stored in $home/ttrss_maint/db_backup.  The src_var_ttrss script is the only non-directory file which will exist in this directory. 

The utilities are designed to be executed from the $home/ttrss_maint/ttrss_utils directory.  They will call src_var_ttrss to obtain their variables.
 

The other blog entries which describe the utilities and sample configurations will be updated to reflect these changes.
