XBMC Addon: Tiny Tiny RSS Reader Client

As an enthusiatic user of ‘Tiny Tiny RSS’, I always wanted to have a client for XBMC too.

I’m already using the web-client and also both of the Android-clients to read my feeds “everywhere”. I love the functionality “to star” or label an article not regarding which client I use.

Unfortunatly there is no addon for XBMC-TTRSS, yet… Now there is ;-)

This is my first addon for XBMC. Some features are still missing, of course. But the addon works on my environment very well:

  • XBMC 10.0 (Dharma) – PVR-Edition (Linux)
  • TTRSS 1.5.5
  • Edit from 2013-04-01: Also tested with XBMC 12.1 (Frodo)


  • List of all Feeds
  • Read article
    • set star/unstar
    • set as read/unread
  • Already read articles are not listed on the next “session”

Things to know

  • Currently only in german translation
  • Articles are only shown in plain-text, means no images or graphical HTML-highlights
  • Currently you have to set your article manually as read (this, what I wanted at the moment)
  • When you’ve set your article as read, it will stay in the list of the feed until you re-enter it again…
