Archive Flagged Items From NetNewsWire Into Yojimbo

·
This lil Ruby-OSA script will allow you to import your "Flagged Items" in NetNewsWire as Web Archive Items in Yojimbo. Thus allowing you to save RSS articles for off-line viewing/storage.


#!/usr/local/bin/ruby
['rubygems', 'rbosa'].each {|lib| require lib}
nnw = OSA.app('NetNewsWire')
yojimbo = OSA.app('Yojimbo')

nnw.subscriptions.find { |s| s if s.display_name == 'Flagged Items' }.headlines.each do |article|
  unless yojimbo.web_archive_items.map { |f| f.source_url }.include?(article.url)
    archived = yojimbo.make(OSA::Yojimbo::WebArchiveItem, 
                            article.url, 
                            :name => article.title)
    # Adjust this for slower/faster bandwidth connections (or your feeling lucky, punk)
    sleep(5)
    # Uncomment below to remove the flagged items upon successfully archiving
    # if archived.name == 'untitled' && archived.source_url.empty?
    #   puts "!!! #{article.title} does not look to be imported !!!"
    # else
    #   article.delete
    # end
  end
end
