The News app is an RSS/Atom feed reader for Nextcloud which can be synced with many mobile devices. The app should also work fine on ownCloud, however ownCloud issues on the bug tracker will be closed if they take too much energy to resolve or aren't obvious bugs.
To bad that it will not be supported for ownCloud. Since I really like the app but the decision to move to nextcloud is not that easy.
Please remove the app from the ownCloud app store when it is not supported anymore.
Hopefully someone will fork the app.
ATM there is no way to publish only for one target since both ownCloud and Nextcloud use the same store. In addition there's no flag that can be set to only allow one or the other.
And I don't really get "the decision to move to nextcloud is not that easy". Just do it, I don't know why you even have to think about it. It's one backup and then exactly the same procedure as every ownCloud update. Code is mostly the same but Nextcloud has more bugfixes and developers.
Because I'm not sure about the future of both projects. And don't want to migrate in a few month back to ownCloud. If this will be possible at all.
At the moment there are no features in nextcloud to let me move. But on the other hand they don't have an app store, no Debian packages.
Maybe ownCloud just needs some time to get new developers. I don't think it's dead yet.
So for the moment I try to stay with ownCloud and hope that the News app will still work for a while. Just had to migrate from 32bit to 64bit for it, don't want to start another migration now ;-)
Could you please tell me the last NEWS version which does not yet require PHP 64bit ? I have tried down to 8.8.0 (while the requirement is only mentioned in 9.0.0.).
I have everything on a Raspberry Pi where this seems to be a show stopper.
AFAIK the model 3 B has a 64bit CPU https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-3-model-b/ and is currently 40€ on Amazon
Nontheless it's probably a bad idea performance wise to run the News app and ownCloud/Nextcloud on a raspberry pie. The hardware (especially I/O which is super important for these applications) is just absolute garbage :(
Thank you very much radiation ! Staying with Nextcloud 9 is certainly no option, security is too important. Searching for RPI and PHP64 I came across the RPI3 as well. This little project is my Linux playground and the bottle neck is actually my internet upload speed (server -> ISP). It's just good enough to stream music which was the initial objective. By adding Nextcloud, I am now able to conveniently add new music and photos. As I am the only (patient) user and only use one service at a time (...website/ghost blog/music streaming (Logitec Media Server)/nextcould & apps...), performance is acceptable. Scrolling/reading in NEWS is absolutely fluent! So I guess I give that RPI3 a go...although I most likely will have to configure everything from scratch. Thanks again and have a great weekend !
I wonder if you could advise one more time: I have setup Nextcloud 10 Beta on a RPI3, a fresh installation i.e. and with all available updates. Alas, the message 'App "News" cannot be installed because the following dependencies are not fulfilled: 64bit or higher PHP required.' still appears. I have PHP 5.6.24 which should be sufficient. Is there anything I could have done wrong?
Would there possibly be a way to turn the launch condition/dependency check off for a try? Or do you think it is hopeless?
And thanks much for your patience with me. Of course you are right, it's 32bit. And here -> https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=138385&start=50 this is discussed at length. There is currently no Raspian 64 bit OS and it is unsure whether there will ever be one. There is a rather disappointed 'cyslider' (his forum name) who switched to a RPI3 because of his Owncloud installation. It looks as if he has successfully installed a 64bit Fedora (-> https://www.kraxel.org/blog/2016/06/new-raspberry-pi-images-uploaded/). I might give it a try too.
