Epiphany URL entry in monospace

Wednesday, March 1st, 2006

This is a nice trick i didn’t know about. If you ever wanted to have a monospaced font for your location entry in epiphany (it works with galeon too), because monospace is nice, and easier to correct, and you can spot errors, here is how:

Monospace font in the entry

Put this in a file called ~/.gnome2/epiphanyrc:

style "mono" { font_name = "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono" }
widget_class "*.EphyLocationEntry.*" style "mono"

You can of course tweak the font settings if you want, say, Comic Sans MS 🙂


Epiphany hacking

Wednesday, April 6th, 2005

These days I have been hacking on an epiphany extension poetically called “rss”.
It allows to retreive feeds in any page, and register these feeds in your favorite feed reader (so it’s not a firefox-like handling of rss feeds) !

All this can be accomplished using dbus, patching popular feed readers such as straw, liferea or blam (i did that, the patches can be found in their respective bugzillas). I had to patch epiphany and epiphany-extensions, so it is quite bleeding-edge to test.

Here is a screenshot of the thing: feeds feeds, notice the statusbar icons..

a random blog feeds
A random blog feeds, notice that noth atom AND rss are selected, by default rss are selected before atom ones.

The feeds are selected “intelligently” so normally blogs that have atom/rss versions only have one of the two selected, while sites providing more feeds are selected entirely.

To signal that feeds are present, a little icon appears in the status bar, and a menu entry appears to make the dialog appear.
