News and updates about the River2 aggregator.
Instapaper + Dropbox + River2 = Coolness
Elasticthreads, the guy who asked for both Instapaper support and Dropbox support in River2, now asks that the two features be combined. An obvious desirable thing. And if you update river2.root, you can have the feature now.
Here’s my Dropbox-based river, with Instapaper icons.
How to update
1. Launch the OPML Editor.
2. Bring river2.root to the front.
3. Choose Update Front Tool from the Tools menu.
4. Click OK to the confirmation.
How to use
First, be sure that the Dropbox feature is enabled.
Second, be sure the Instapaper feature is also enabled.
Then if you view your River you’ll see that there are now Instapaper icons next to most items. If you click an icon, you are transported to the Instapaper site, where it confirms your username and password. Click on OK and then the story is added to your list of unread items. Click the Back button in your browser a couple of times to get back to reading your river.
