[SOLVED] Allow third-party fulltext fetcher in af_readability


I know there is a plugin called mercury_fulltext for this, but it can not work for bookmarklets since bookmarklets it harded-coded to call the “extract_contents” in af_readability.

It would be great if af_readability could have an option for setting a URL to a third-party fulltext fetcher, like in https://github.com/HenryQW/mercury_fulltext/blob/master/init.php#L193

A web-based API allows processing the feed with any programming language, which opens up the opportunity for further integration with other existing applications.

  1. af_readability is going to continue using readability. i hope i don’t need to explain why.
  2. you can always make a different bookmarklets plugin which would do whatever you want
  3. i’m all for adding more plugin hooks but there has to be a line drawn somewhere

as a more generic solution i’ve added a separate plugin hook (HOOK_GET_FULL_TEXT) which could be provided by any plugin implementing full text service; at the moment the only place its being used is the one where ad_readability was previously invoked by name, but this could be extended.

additionally, this could be used by other plugins, which might want to get full article text in a generic way.

i haven’t tested this but it should work.


I have just tested the updated code. It doesn’t seem to be working.
The log shows

Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; SphinxClient has a deprecated constructor

6. classes/handler/public.php(578): create_published_article(TEST TITLE, http://localhost:8081/TEST, , , 1)
7. public.php(50): sharepopup()

It seems that the fetched content is empty


you’re right, this should be fixed by https://git.tt-rss.org/fox/tt-rss/commit/fda475bd930891cab422597ded679c1cc8ff7215


I tried the https://git.tt-rss.org/fox/tt-rss/commit/bf5dfc444e11aa84b1ad193c1901b9919c5effac and it is still not working. The article is not even created and the pop up stucks after I click “Share” button.
The “SphinxClient has a deprecated constructor” warning disappeared, though.


I also tried returning a string “test” directly here, but the problem remains

Is is not from the plug-in but somewhere else?


your php doesn’t have UConverter? post your php version

on debian its probably php7.0-intl package


My php version is 7.2.17
It is intalled via

apk add --update --no-cache nginx s6 php7 php7-fpm php7-cli php7-curl php7-fileinfo php7-mbstring php7-gd php7-json php7-dom php7-pcntl php7-posix \
  php7-pgsql php7-mcrypt php7-session php7-pdo php7-pdo_pgsql ca-certificates

well install the intl package then? it’s a hard requirement now anyway because of SQL logging.

e: i’ve updated https://git.tt-rss.org/fox/tt-rss/wiki/PhpCompatibilityNotes

It worked after installing the intl package :slight_smile:

On Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS, running: sudo apt-get install php7.2-intl did the trick. To be fair, the error message I got from the ttrss page was pretty clear which package I needed. A simple Google search showed that I needed php*-intl whatnot.
