Is there any way to start Feedly in a Prism window?
http://labs.mozilla.com/2008/03/major...
... because on my system everything else works faster than Firefox 3, so I use a lot of Web Apps via Prism.

Hi Alex. We have not looked into Prism yet. But if it supports firefox 3 and allows extensions, there is not reason it should not work. The URL for accessing feedly is http://www.feedly.com/feedly#my

If you end up making it work and want to write something about it, please let us know and we will post or reference it on our blog.

Hi Edwin, I tried the URL you suggested and ended up with Prism showing a window with grey background, a large "feedly" headline and the options: Load your feedly, Install, Learn more, Support. On "Load your feedly" nothing happens (it's just reloading the window). On "Install" it tries to install the xpi File in my default browser Firefox 3 (where feedly already has been installed). Somebody told me he wasn't able to get any extensions installed on Prism yet.... so I think probably it's not possible.

well i tried few methods but failed... i guess help is needed from the feedly team.. as for interface, feedly adds a button on the address bar in browesr.... i felt this was one of the reasons i had unsuccessful installation of feedly on Prism.

please have a look at these links edwin

subject Solution for Feedly on Prism.

Hi Edwin,

Long time, How have you been?

I have looked into the xpi of feedly and xpi of the other extensions which worked with prism [ad block plus & stylish]. i guess i found a solution which might work.

In normal installation on firefox, feedly puts the icon on toolbar and urlbar icons in the address bar [overlay.xul], which i suppose, are the basic problems when installing on prism.

the solution would be removing the urlbar icons and putting the toolbar icon on status bar [which i have seen on both adblock & stylish].

instead of this

we use something like this...

<!-- with some oncommand, tooltip, etc... here -->

Do look into this, and make a test version of feedly which could work for prism.

Would love to test feedly on prism... do consider sending me the testing version.

Regards,

slax

PS: I am looking into the skinning of feedly, will update you soon. btw, nice work on the css file... its very easy to understand :)

slax. I saw the email. thanks for collecting the information. The last 3 weeks have been *very* intense so I have not had the chance to look into this yet.

Re: skinning, we have actually build a technology which allows us to make CSS dynamic: you will notice that CSS files are no longer separate but embedded in .miro files. This is one step towards making our CSS files parametric. Our thinking here is that the first generation of skin would be just a set of parameters that skin developer would specify and we feedly would use to generate all the CSS dynamically. What would be super useful would be for you to define the minimum set of parameters you would need to create a skin and email them to me. The ideal format would be a simple list of variables:

{
backgroundColor: "#3333333"
readTitleColor: "#DFDFDF"
sideareaBackgroundColor: "#....."
accentColor: "#...."
}

We can use this to understand which part of the CSS you need to make dynamic.

Thank you,
Edwin

Assuming prism works as well as Fluid, which I used yesterday to create a Safari-based SSB for Google Reader on my Mac, it would be awesome if Feedly could work with it.

I've been looking for a way to dump NetNewsWire on the Mac, as I use Google Reader on all my Linux machines, including my N800, and when I found I could use an SSB for Google Reader which fired articles off into my default browser, I thought I'd reached Nirvana. Until, that is, I discovered Feedly, which was the icing on my Nirvana, except that my new Safari-based SSB was impotent, and unable to take me to RSS heaven.

Of course my little N800 wouldn't make it to heaven with me, as it would be stuck in a Feedly-free hell. Perhaps a sync-to-Google-now option could be available, so I can sync on demand or periodically without having to log out or close a browser, in order that my N800 (and my PS3) don't show me old news in GR.

Anyway, I'm almost in RSS nirvana thanks to your efforts.

cheers, fnord

I trying to do this, but I get this error messages in Prism:


Warning: reference to undefined property Ci.nsIWebProgressListener.STATE_SECURE_MEDIUM
Source File: chrome://webrunner/content/webrunner.js
Line: 1034

Something says to me that webrunner.js is the problem. Any ideas?

I have not that much experience with Prism so I am not sure that could be the cause of the problem. Sorry.

Would love to see movement on this, especially now that people like me are running a webapp OS such as PeppermintOS Linux which relies heavily on Prism web apps as a replacement to installing native applications on the OS. Running Feedly in a full window, outside the browser, just seems more natural anyway.
