    - 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: Reddit / 4 months ago

    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.
