Is there a possibility of adding own items into the news feed of QGIS 3.10? As a GIS administrator it would be a great tool to spread GIS/QGIS related news to internal colleagues.


I think you can. I'd have to get your service to return this structure.


And with this I should be able to add your news channel.

url ="https://feed.qgis.org/"
text = "QGIS"
mNewsFeedParser = QgsNewsFeedParser(QUrl(url), text)
mNewsFeedModel = QgsNewsFeedProxyModel( mNewsFeedParser );

I think you can, but I'm not completely sure. Anyway, the welcome page feed always uses only the official QGIS feed, so even if you added your own channel I don't think it's going to be the same.

I hope it helps you.

  • Ok, thank you for your input. It seems it's not as easy as I imagined. I'll give it a try soon and let you know if it worked for me. – pascatl Nov 18 at 15:05

While the code behind the news feed is open and can be reproduced, there's no way to replace the existing feed address with a new one (or add multiple feed sources). Rather, it's hard coded into the qgis source and cannot be customised (as of 3.10)
