Today I find “Newsbeuter“ is not in the apt repository of Ubuntu 20.04 anymore. So I’m looking for an alternative and find “Newsboat“.

Here is a quote from “Newsboat” GitHub page:

Newsboat is an RSS/Atom feed reader for the text console. It’s an actively maintained fork of Newsbeuter.

This explains why everything looks almost the same when I open Newsboat.

About the migration, what I need to do is, run the following command to export the RSS URLs from Newsbeuter:

newsbeuter -e > newsbeuter.opml

And run the folloing command to import them into Newsboat:

newsboat -i newsbeuter.opml

After that, you can read in terminal again.
