News App Progress

April 23, 2022

My feed reader app is ripe for a major refactoring, mostly thanks to a lot of new features added by me and other contributors. The goal is to improve code readability and test coverage. I’m also planning to improve my standalone web feed parser.

The most painful thing to refactor is the way the app deals with feed and entry links. The current approach includes assumptions about the number and the nature of those links, which conflicts with both the spec and the real world. I think it’s time to make things right.
