What’s your favourite RSS feed reader?
I’ve got a few options to recommend for the web and macOS/iOS but not many browser extensions, or feed readers for Windows or Linux.
@laura Hey Laura, hope you 3 are well.
Liferea for linux, though not sexy, does the job.
@laura Hello 🙂
It's Newsblur.com for me, with it's own client on iOS and the web UI everywhere else.
@laura Personally, I don't like feed readers that download all the entries and give me an unread count. I'm in the "river of news" camp. I've written a little script that fetches all the feeds and creates a static web page; I call it every four hours. In the tradition of Planet, Planet Venus and Planet Pluto, I call mine Planet Jupiter.
What is a River of News aggregator?
Thanks. Planets used to be really common for communities around programming languages and tools, e.g. https://planet.emacslife.com/ https://planet.debian.org/ https://pl6anet.org/
But I guess the others all got eaten by Google Reader, Bloglines, and now Feedly and friends? Or perhaps the decline of blogging in general.
@kensanata @emsenn @laura So I found this plugin  to nicely integrate with my static website. In principle this would work if I just rebuild the website with a daily cronjob. Is this a good idea? The alternatives would be
1. to populate the feeds dynamically using JS. Sounds lightweight but would send several requests everytime it loads :/
2. deploy a stand alone server side application
@laura feedbin.com to manage and track them. I use the web front end on Linux, and Reeder on Mac/iOS.
+1 for Nextcloud News. For Linux an app supporting it it's FeedReader: https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.gnome.FeedReader
@laura elfeed, to read them using emacs
@laura I use the Feedly service, mostly via ReadKit on macOS and Unread on iOS.
@laura I'm using freshrss which works pretty well.
@laura GNOME Feeds gets better and better
@laura I rely on something webased -> inoreader
@laura readkit, monocle/aperture, tinyrss, fraidyc.at, all for diff aspects so no distinct favourite
@laura I use tinytinyRSS, because you can create filters so subjects that are the most important stay on the top and vice versa.
@laura I've been happy with Newsblur. Tiny Tiny RSS also worked for me a few years ago. For a desktop one, I think I liked QuietRSS, but I didn't use it for a long time.
@laura For linux I have trid some. I always got back to newsboat so far. Mostly because it limits things down to just text, pretty distraction free (you can configure it to open links in a browser like firefox - I stuck with lynx for the same reasons I stuck with newsboat, although this has some drawbacks).
I've been happy with ttrss as well for a while, if you like a more "modern" interface.
@laura I've used Lire the last few years, and like it.
@laura I use nextcloud news and its related android app to sync up my reading
@laura I'm living in Emacs, so elfeed is my feed reader of choice. Should work anywhere Emacs runs.
(Not recommended if you're not an Emacs user, unless you want to become one. But there are better emacs packages to get hooked onto than elfeed.)
@laura I would love to read your recommandations, as I can’t find any good option (gonna end up by building one myself in the next 3 years…).
@laura I'm pretty with Liferea, though I can think of design improvements.
@laura really like feeder.co cause i dont use the purchase option and it helps me calm my anxiety about finding everything out Right Now since it only gives a certain amount you can read for updates
@laura I tend to use Feedly although I've pondered shifting to a Tiny Tiny RSS install but I've just not gotten the motivation to do it. That its the same view at home, work, and mobile makes a web version make sense to me.
I used tt-rss for years but when I moved servers last year I went to Thunderbird temporarily and decided I like having RSS and email integrated in the same app. Also keeping it off the web keeps me from obsessively checking for new posts.
@laura The new NetNewsWire! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
@laura rss2email, in part because I like reading RSS feeds in my email client.
