Default ttrss-reader, Android client for Tiny Tiny RSS (php)

Hi folks,

i am proud to announce the Release of v0.5.11 of ttrss-reader, the android-client for Tiny Tiny RSS:
TTRSS-Reader for Android


Tiny Tiny RSS
TT-RSS is a php/javascript-based reader with a google-reader-like interface, running on your own server with mysql/postgresql and php. It supports multiple user-accounts, feed-categories, labels, sharing of articles and automatic updates every x minutes.

ttrss-reader for Android
Ttrss-reader for Android was started at code.google.com by J.Devauchelle but as i couldn't reach him for several weeks i forked the project: (see note above for URL)

I implemented some usability features and then started implementing local caching since before EVERY single piece of data was requested from the server, slowing down the browsing a lot.
Now i think the program is in a quite usable state, although the local-caching doesn't work so well. The server-side provides API-methods to retrieve data as JSON-Objects but they are focused on transferring a low amount of data in every request (eg. only one article with content is sent at a time, not all new articles which would be much easier).

So if anyone want to keep his feeds away from google and do stuff on his own, in my opinion this is the way to do it. And please excuse my english. ^^
I would appreciate any ideas what could be improved or bugreports and i'd feel honoured if some of you would like to try this app or even join developement.

Some Screenshots:



Greetings,
nils

Hi,

Just to say that I like this app but my ttrss instance seems too big for this app. Android ask me to kill the app everytimes it makes a refresh of the data.

for information : my ttrss run on a PC and is hosted at home. It has +12000 articles

Keep up

Getting error message? I installed this, and put in my tt-rss location, username, and password. It gives me this error message:
"error":"API_DISABLED"

@celticchrys: That means you have to login to the webinterface and enable the API in your user-preferences. Dont know why but the API-access is a per-user-setting in Tiny Tiny RSS so every user has to enable it for himself.

@lordnils: Thanks, I'll give that a try.

***EDIT***
It force closed on me a couple of times, did fetch my articles once, and now says it cannot. I also got a very long error, many screens long, that begins with :
Oupd...
I was unable to conenct to your Tiny Tiny TSS instance, please check your connection and/or connection settings.

Error details:
A JSONObject text must begin with '{' at character 1 of <html>

The above is then followed by basically the entire code for my login page.

Any ideas?
Thanks.

Hm, something seems to be wrong with the URL for API-Access. You should make sure you entered the URL in the settings exactly like the URL you use to access the webinterface of Tiny Tiny RSS.

If the problem still exists it would be helpful if you provided me with the output of ADB (or aLogcat from the market if you dont want to mess with the USB-connection and the Android-SDK). It would be the easiest way to resolve the problem if you opened an issue on <url for the google-code page of our project where you can start an issue> so other people involved could try to fix the problem, too.

Greetings,
nils

ps: sry for not posting urls, i dont think it is a good practice to encourage people to spam somewhere so they can post links. so i just dont do it and wait for the protection to dissappear. :/

Hey lordnils,

I'm having the same problem as celticchrys. I am using the exact url that I login to via a browser, API is enabled, but still get the documented error within the program.

Any ideas what I might look at?
