Article Properties

'Article Properties' window provides information about article properties (time, title, summary, link, size, FTS state and Offline) as well as article topics table.  The table lists the topics to which the article belongs together with keywords and counts. Here is how 'Article Properties' window looks like.

Article Properties

The following table describes the article properties.

Property Description
Id Article id

Title Article title

Size Article size
FTS State Full text search state. See the list of FTS states below.

Article FTS States

RSS feeds contain only article time, name, description and link to the full article content. For each article the application downloads the full article content (single HTML file) and indexes it using FTS (full text search) database.

To avoid freezing the UI, each received article goes (in lazy way) through the following background processing steps:

  1. Article text is not received.

  2. First it is saved in the cache and is waiting for processing

  3. Then after some time it is indexed in the full text search database and waiting for analysis.

  4. The keywords analysis is performed using the keywords for all topics. If the article satisfies the topic's search criteria, then the article (and its feed) is moved to the topic(s).

The following table describes the article FTS (full text search) states.

# Description Comment
1 Article text not available. Article text is not downloaded yet.
2 Saved in cache. Waiting for processing. Article was downloaded and saved in the cache.
3 Saved in database. Waiting for analysis. Article was saved in full text search database.
4 Ready. Article was analyzed

 


Article Offline

If feed's 'Prefetch Articles for Offline Reading' flag is switched on, then besides the full article content (single HTML file) the application downloads all CSS files, pictures, scripts and so on and saves the local version of the article to provide the ability to read the article offline. See screenshots.

The application saves all article files for a limited period of time measured in days from the time of the first download (aka 'days to keep'). After the retention period is over all article files (that are not used by other articles) are deleted.
