  • First-Gen Social Media Users Have Nowhere to Go
    I see this all the time and while at the time I thought the same there's so many good alternatives these days, even better than back then. All the interesting and small websites I want to follow still have RSS feeds so I feel like we can move on. The two I use for many years already are: - (OS, Minimal, web interface and can be used with all clients that support Fever or Google Reader API) -... - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • Show HN: Twine – Gorgeous open source multiplatform RSS app
    And like with most multiplatform apps, it doesn't look native at all on iOS. I prefer my current combination of: + Both open source too. - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • [Hobby Scuffles] Week of April 24, 2023
    Ive had pretty good luck finding feeds for stuff I want to subscribe to. There isn't always an explicit rss link but you'd be surprised how many blog platforms provide a /rss or /feed endpoint by default. The reader I use is pretty good at finding them if I just give it a link to the home page. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Serving an RSS reader and a browser best way?
    I have miniflux as my rss reader. It is setup in a container and if I am outside of my home network I use tailscale to connect to the local network. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Gripes with RSS after one week
    As a recent returnee to the world of RSS feeds, I’ve been enjoying the miniflux client [1] self hosted with docker-compose. Fast, cross-platform, not fancy. [1] - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Most used selfhosted services in 2022?
    Miniflux ( - still figuring out how I want to manage rss/feeds, but miniflux came out on top in my first round of experimentation. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: What RSS Reader do you use in 2022?
    Miniflux. I'm incredibly happy with how simple and usable it is. I mostly use it as a PWA on my phone. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • It's Time for an RSS Revival
    Two RSS submissions today, from different sources. Interesting. Haven't seen this in the comments for either: A very lightweight self-hosted web client for managing RSS feeds. I very much like it. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • It's Time for an RSS Revival
    Self-hosted Miniflux, dead-easy, just works. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • How to rebuild social media on top of RSS
    I love Miniflux [1], but you need to self-host it - probably not something for the typical Twitch user. [1]: - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Simple, useful apps that you self-host?
    - miniflux - the best self-hosted rss ever. Fast (due to spartan UI), yet extensible via customized CSS and tons of extensions. Integrates nicely with Mac's Reeder and Reeder app on iOS (which is an essence of brilliant UX/UI for me). Source: over 1 year ago
  • Breaking out my old Pi 1b. Anything lightweight I can put it to work on?
    I have my 3B+ running a Wireguard server ( for remote access to my home network, and Miniflux ( as I've long mourned the death of Google Reader. It has plenty of resources left for any future projects I want to throw on it as well. Source: over 1 year ago
  • RSS service that doesn't suck?
    If you want to go back to free and selfhosted, look into Miniflux. Very lightweight and easy to selfhost. Offers both Google Reader and Fever API to use with 3rd party clients. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Use RSS for privacy and efficiency
    Personally I use miniflux. Not app needed for iOS or otherwise. Its pretty nice. You can also host it wherever. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • NetNewsWire: Free and Open Source RSS Reader for Mac and iOS
    I had been using Miniflux for little less than a year. If you don't want to bother with self-hosting, there's a hosted option. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • 35 thought-provoking websites that will help you learn new things - AI powered research assistant, list of Rss feed readers, open links from the web in apps instead
    Https:// - minimalist and opinionated feed reader. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • eBook app that will stream from calibre-web?
    One really cool feature that KOReader has for self-hosters though is support for wallabag, which is a "read it later" service that you can self-host. Then you can access your saved articles through its web UI, Android app or KOReader. I highly recommend checking it out if you like reading articles. I installed it this week and am really enjoying it, alongside Miniflux - a self-hosted RSS feed server that can save... Source: almost 2 years ago
  • RSS is on fire again, and it's all down to SlackOps
    You could give a try, it's a fork of Newsbeuter. I shared my Newsbeuter setup a long time ago here ( but have since moved on to and Reeder (iPad OS, iOS, Mac). They all support the Google Reader API so it makes using any client very easy. - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • The Old Reader
    Account but don’t sign in via google. Feedly noticed my account was a google account and kept trying to redirect me to googles login. Support wasn’t helpful, and only responded when I posted a workaround on Reddit/twitter. Anyway at that point I started looking for alternatives. And ultimately landed on the older reader and miniflux. Frankly I am still on miniflux. - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Goodbye, Feedly
    Or if you want to self host: - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Newsraft - a little brother of Newsboat
    If you're into self-hosting, I can recommend Miniflux. It provides a progressive web app so it's usable anywhere, and Newsboat can sync with it. They can also host it for you for $15 per year. Source: almost 2 years ago
