rss_widget is a container designed to function as a backend for the the "Custom Widget" Element integration. It needs to be run behind a reverse proxy for SSL. An example proxy configurate for Apache's httpd is provided below.
$ cd rss_widget $ podman build -t rss_widget_image . $ podman run -d -p 3000:3000 --name rss_widget_container rss_widget_image
<Location "/_widget0"> ProxyPass http://my-container-server.example.com:3000/ ProxyPassReverse http://my-container-server.example.com:3000/ Require ssl </Location>
Assuming you've chosen to proxy the
/_widget0 path as shown above and the hostname of your proxy server is
my-proxy-server.example.com, the URL that you would enter in Element's Custom Widget integration would be
https://my-proxy-server.example.com/_widget0/?u=<your-rss-feed-url>. Optionally, you can append
&c=<n> where <n> is a positive integer to set the number of RSS titles to display in the widget. You can also append
&f=<m> where <m> is a positive integer representing the refresh frequency in minutes.
