Simple Search for Feeds, Saved Stories, and Blurblogs

12 Comments and 22 Shares

Search, which can easily be considered one of the most important features of a world-class news reader, is also one of the most difficult features to build.

While working on the feature, I came across a great method that allows searching through story titles, authors, and tags on a per-feed basis. It’s not perfect and it’s not the full feature, but this will get us 80% of the way there.

Also comes with a handy keyboard shortcut (and a refactored keyboard shortcut dialog).

You can also search your saved stories and shared stories. This feature will soon find it’s way to both Android and iOS, and is available today to all premium users.

This is great. However, I'd like to add that there is a usability feature that I am longing for. It would be great if right klick on a story title would allow opening in a new browser tab.

There's a preference to turn off NewsBlur's right-click menu.

Fantastic! While testing out the feature for a few moments I have re-discovered some previously saved favorite stories of mine.

Frequently, I remember that I read something months earlier and even recall starring it but for the life of me cannot recall where. Search will help.

Sorta useless if you are following 800+ RSS feeds and want to search for something you read but didn't save...

Seashell

This is roughly equivalent to 'number of times I've picked up a seashell at the ocean' / 'number of times I've picked up a seashell', which in my case is pretty close to 1, and gets much closer if we're considering only times I didn't put it to my ear.

Shouldn't the p(seashell) be in the denominator and the p(ocean) in the numerator?
