  • My slow progression towards and away from NextCloud
    NC News did have some issues at some point, feeds just wouldn't refresh. And for a rss aggregator, the slugging UI was particularly annoying. I quickly found FreshRSS, which does the same thing but is way faster / more responsive, and it has a nicer UI and some more useful options for customisation as well. Due to FreshRSS (which I would have never tried without NC News) I was able to break my "click 10 news links... - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago

    Blogs are the OG way of learning from others (at least for me). Some of the downsides of blogs are irregular updates and discovering new content. I love using an RSS reader but the discovery is a constant struggle. - Source: / about 1 year ago
  • Looking for a selfhosted news dashboard application
    Probably FreshRSS or TT-RSS. I ended up going with Miniflux because I'm mostly connecting to it via RSS reader apps (FeedMe on Android, and Fluent Reader on Linux) rather than reading via the web UI. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • I made, a website that generate RSS feeds with official news and announcements
    The next day, I updated the script, created a website, bought one more domain (I own so much domains...) and a little bit of web hosting space. I automated the generation of the feeds with GitHub Actions and voila. At this time, I was able to take a feed from my creation and have all official news about Genshin Impact right into my FreshRSS server and my RSS readers (Readably on Android, Reeder on iOS/iPadOS and... - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

    Why does everyone keep reinventing the RSS feed? I've seen dozens of people working on this exact project, but never figured out what the benefits are over already built, tested, and deployed solutions like FreshRSS. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Any open source news app?
    Lots of open source RSS readers. I have a selfhosted RSS reader -- FreshRSS -- that I connect to with an open source reader, NetNewsWire. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Best RSS feed reader for privacy that supports syncing between devices?
    Https:// is self hosted and has a webui that works across anything. It also supports Google Readers API spec so any compatible app should hook into it. - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
