No Feed System in Nepali Websites

Atom 1.0 or RSS 2.0 is being used as standard feed by website these days,all over the world but what about Nepali Websites ? Recently, I've started NewsBlogsNepal in twitter and Nepal Samachar in facebook. Since, In NewsBlogsNepal I've wished to collect various News & Blogs feed to tweet in twitter. Hence I've gone through several Nepali sites and Blogs, but sadly I've got only few sites which have feed and among them very less sites have standard feed system. I was shocked by this result.

What a shame that, those sites like ekantipur which called themselves as no.1 News Portal of Nepal doesn't have feed system. Ekantipur has just given link for their feed but no single feed is displayed. (Might be they are in maintenance phase of site, but where's feed ?). Specially, I've gone through Nepali News Sites, since I wished to tweet those published news in twitter from their feed. I've got very less number of feed from Nepali Website, but I'm planning to make system to crawl those breaking news and content in twitter (NewsBlogsNepal)  from their sites very soon. But in blogs, blog platform like, Blogger, Word Press, Joomla, Drupal etc have already enabled feed system as Atom 1.0 or RSS 2.0, So, it has been easy to fetch their feeds .


I've found some Nepali News site which have enable feed, but they are not in standard format. Website like myrepublica, dainikee have enable feed, but they are not in proper standard format. I've knew this, since I'm using twitterfeed to feed my twitter. When, I've entered feed url of those sites, twitterfeed says sorry, we only support feed having GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) or Published Date. And of-course sites like myrepublica and dainikee doesn't have GUID or Published date in their feed, so I'm unable to fetch their news. Also, InsecOnline doesn't have feed, when we go to their feed, they display nothing.

But its nice to see standard feed of NagarikNews.com . Since, NagarikNews is hosted in Joomla, they automatically have standard feed system. Among several sites, I've got feed from few sites such as NagarikNews, NepalNews, ABC, NayaPatrika, The Himalayan Times, Telegraph Nepal, Online Khabar etc. Although I was able to get feed but result was not satisfactory. Very less number of websites have enabled feed and among them very very less number of sites have standard feed. And interestingly no any-problem has been seen in feeds of Blogs.

Now I suggest those websites to enable their feed in standard format so one can read news in their browser, in their desktop, in google reader, in feed reader etc. If they will enable their standard feed then, user like me really benefit from it. We have no time to surf every news portal for news, we wish to read news and articles right in our desktop, in our feed reader etc. Hence, its necessary to have standard feed system of each websites.

What is RSS Feed?
RSS (most commonly expanded as "Really Simple Syndication") is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a "feed", "web feed", or "channel") includes full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship. Web feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate content automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place. RSS feeds can be read using software called an "RSS reader", "feed reader", or "aggregator", which can be web-based, desktop-based, or mobile-device-based. A standardized XML file format allows the information to be published once and viewed by many different programs. The user subscribes to a feed by entering into the reader the feed's URI or by clicking an RSS icon in a web browser that initiates the subscription process. The RSS reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new work, downloads any updates that it finds, and provides a user interface to monitor and read the feeds.RSS formats are specified using XML, a generic specification for the creation of data formats.

  1. I think they are not enabling it ( or in other words: disabling it) only to make us read and go through the advertisements published in their sites.

    Otherwise I can't think of any other reason for doing this for online news portals. They just want to force you to see their banner ads :)

  2. I have subscribed to eKantipur feed in Opera and it works perfectly for me.

    About myrepublica, the feed is just the headlines to make it easy for mobile device reading as it updates frequently, putting date does not mean anything.

वान्नाक्राइ र्‍यान्समवेयर : नेपालमा पारेको प्रभाव र जोगिने उपाय

अघिल्लो हप्ता 'वान्नाक्राइ र्‍यान्समवेयर'ले १५० देशका २ लाख ३० हजार भन्दा धेरै कम्प्युटरमा एकैसाथ आक्रमण गरेर सन्सनी मच्चायो । वान्नाक्राइ र्‍यान्समवेयर एक किसिमको कम्प्युटर भाइरस हो, जसले तपाईको कम्प्युटरको डाटालाई नियन्त्रणमा लिन्छ (या भनौँ अपहरण गर्छ) र त्यसवापत फिरौती माग गर्छ । प्रयोगकर्ताले फिरौती रकम नतिरेसम्म, कम्प्युटरका डाटाहरु प्रयोग गर्नबाट रोक्छ । मेरो कम्प्युटर अरुको नियन्त्रणमा कसरी होला? मेरो आफ्नै कम्प्युटरमा रहेको डाटा प्रयोग गर्न नसक्ने पनि होला र? भनेर प्रयोगकर्तालाई जिज्ञासा लाग्नु सामान्य हो ।

Shruti Sambeg : Download तरुनी खेती

Listen to Full Episode of Taruni Kheti.

आज को श्रुति संवेग को यो अंक मा  हामी  ‘सरुभक्त’ को उपन्यास ‘तरुनी खेती’ को सबै अंक लिएर आएका छौँ।


विषयवस्तु परिचित भएपनि, प्रस्तुतिकरण नितान्त फरक रहेको छ । महिला अनि पुरुष, को सामाजिक स्थितिलाई लेखिएर लेखिएको उपन्यास मा, ‘महिला’लाई यौनिक रुप ले हेरिएको छ ।

सरल कुरा तर जटिल प्रस्तुती लाग्ने हुँदा, सुरु मा उपन्यास ले के भन्न खोजिरहेको भन्ने कुरा बुझ्न निकै गाह्रो पर्छ । नारीलाई खेत, पुरुषलाई किसान, यस्तै यस्तै उपमा र बिम्ब बाट नारी र पुरुषलाई परिभाषित गरिएको छ ।

भुमिका मा सरुभक्तले भन्नुभएकोछ, “यसलाई पुरुषहरु ले गलत नबुझुन र नारीहरु ले बुझ्न इन्कार नगरुन्” ।

उज्यालो ९० नेटवर्क को लागि निर्माण गरिएको कार्यक्रम श्रुति संवेग मा सदाझैँ वाचन मा अच्युत घिमिरे हुनुहुन्छ भने प्रविधी मा दिनेश निरौला र शशिन्द्र गौतम रहनुभएको छ ।
