Generate mutt.rc and run it with:

$ ./feeds-browse

mutt.rc should contain all feeds mailboxes with human readable labels/titles.

Also it contains contains auto_view text/html, that expects a proper mailcap configuration file with text/html entry to exists. Mutt has some built-in default search paths for, but you can override them with $MAILCAPS environment variable. See the example contrib/mailcap.

Mutt will be started in mailboxes browser mode (I will skip many entries):

ePrint has new entries since last downloading/parsing. Stargrave’s blog comments have nothing new, but still ten unread entries.

If we open "Eaten By A Grue" mailbox, then will see its entries:

Press q to return to mailbox browser again. This is made for convenience, because you will often switch your mailboxes (feeds), but q quits Mutt by default.

Press A to mark all messages read. And again this is made for convenience. It will mark both new (N) and old-but-unread (O) messages as read. You will see left tag-marks near each message to understand what was touched.

Press o in pager mode to open links and enclosures URLs. Your message will be piped to cmd/x-urlview, that will show all X-URL and X-Enclosure links.

Press F1 to go to next unread mailbox.

Press r in pager mode to download and parse current feed by running (cmd/dnp).

Press R in mailbox browser mode to refresh all feeds by running (feeds-dnp).
