RSS Is Still A Thing

As a RSS refugee from the olden times, I've used more aggregators than I can possibly remember. Most recently Reeder on top of feedbin and have been pretty happy with that setup for a few years.

But I got a bit bored with all that and wanted to give something else a try. Enter Tiny Tiny RSS.

Open source, self hosted web app with community themes. As long as you have a host and a DB, you point the installer at it, import your OPML file, add the cron job to crawl for updates and then it "just works".

Hey @kapgar, look what I'm reading.

    Yay me and my site!

    I still use Feedly. I’ll never change unless it dies. I have little desire to experiment with something else.

      Lulz. Yeah on any other day I would say that I have little patience for tinkering. Except for when I do I guess?

    Given we all still miss Google Reader, Feedly is the one I've been with for a while now. I also use Reeder on my iPad, maintaining a second RSS feed reader. Tiny Tiny RSS sounds cool. though.

      Feedly does seem to be the most popular of the Google Reader web based replacements certainly. Is it ok to still be bitter at Google for killing Reader? I think it is.
