This is more of a utility than a full-blown application. My motivation for writing this was that I always have with podcast novels (podiobooks). I wait for them to get completed before I grab them in one bite. Going through the process of adding the feed to PodBreeze, selecting to download everything, waiting for the files to download and then remove the feed wasn’t fun.
Enter FeedSlurper – the program that downloads everything off a feed. No fancy options, just the basics. Enter the feed, select where to save and click Download – and walk away.
It can be even simpler if you’re using Firefox. Just surf to the feed itself, to the point that you’re seeing the feed on your screen. Not the web page containing the link – you should click the link, so that you get the feed viewer, with the “Subscribe to this feed” on top. Select FeedSlurper from the list of programs (or click Select program if it’s not there), and click subscribe. Now FeedSlurper starts, with the URL already in place.
