Do you want a quick and easy way to browse AmigaWorld.net News articles without starting a browser?

Amiga Developer Network Team member, Javier de las Rivas has been working hard on solving this problem with the new AmigaWorld.net News Dock App.


Features

* Browse news headlines
* View news text
* Filter news articles by content type
* Navigate to AmigaWorld.net website quickly with button


Requirements

* X-Dock v2
* AmiSphereServer
* Enhancer Software 1.4


This will be available very soon to download on AMIStore and Updater tool.

Thank you Javier for your great work on this useful new app! Thanks also to Kevin Saunders and Mason for the graphics. Special thanks for the assistance from Sibbi for the server scripts.

Nice!

Does X-Dock support AmiDock Dockies?

@amigakit

It's pretty limited given it's name and no other news sites supported...i'd rather open a browser and switch sites whenever i want.

wrt X-Dock:
Will there at least be a program to write the already available AmiDock dockies for X-Dock?

I'd have a pretty long list in mind...

@Raziel

I guessing there would be no forum distractions using this app though.

@amigakit

Shame about the old dockies not being compatible. I'm sure replacements will come in time, what are the benefits of X-Dock over AmiDock?

Take it this little app will have notication support to notify of a new stories?

X-Dock is actively developed and already features many improvements over AmiDock.

Epsilon recently reviewed X Dock v2 here: https://amigax1000.blogspot.com/2018/09/enhancer-v14-sneak-preview-on-x1000.html?m=1

The API for Dock Apps is very different to Dockies because we do not have access to the source code of Amidock so we wrote our own system. Now it is complete we can maintain it regularly by releasing new versions through Updater tool.

No updates have come out for Amidock for many years and I have read quite a few bug reports from frustrated users which have still not been addressed.

There are already many Dock Apps available for X Dock and there will be more forthcoming from our team. There is also a few example DockApps in the X Dock SDK if any coders want to create their own.

The AmigaWorld News Dock App supports Ringhio Notifications to alert you when news is published.
