Hello RSS fans!
Can you recommend some good open source readers that are suitable for beginners (i.e. easy to install and easy to use)?
All platforms considered: Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iPhone
(For phone apps, they should be installable from the default app store.)
@switchingsocial for GNU/Linux only: Liferea. Light and does the work very nicely.
And for those who would like something online and who can self-host (only requires an Apache-MySQL-PHP server): FreshRSS
@switchingsocial I put Tiny Tiny RSS on a webserver that I use for other things as well and access it through my browser on my computer and through the Tiny Tiny RSS app from f-droid
@switchingsocial So it's a good solution if you already have a web server that you have control over
But I realise that's not everybody
@switchingsocial Feeder from the F-Droid store always serves me well. https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.nononsenseapps.feeder/
@switchingsocial I use The Old Reader, which is browser-centric but has an okay Android app (you have to add feeds from a browser)
@switchingsocial personally I host miniflux, it's pretty easy and fast to set up and use :)
@switchingsocial Newsboat for GNU/Linux, Flym for Android.
Although Newsboat is a CLI app, it's quite easy to set up and use for basic things IMO.
@switchingsocial On my mobile I've used Flym and Feeder. I think both are in google store too.
On desktop liferea but only works in linux U_U
@switchingsocial Liferea. Wiki.archlinux.org -> list of applications gives you a more big list
@switchingsocial I have used both quiteRSS and BanditRSS and I have had a good experience with both. Cross platform too. :3
Both can actually auto detect youtube links. just a fun fact :D
@switchingsocial I use thunderbird
