RSS Readers

This shows my attempts to find a suitable replacement for feedly RSS reader.
Bonus if I can self-host it.

Miniflux

https://miniflux.app/docs/installation.html#docker

Pros

  • easy to setup
  • uses j and k for navigation

Cons

  • the looks are pretty bad
  • must press o to “read my feed”, otherwise it only shows a list
  • does not load attachments automatically
    Before click:

    After click:
  • kinda difficult to organize feeds into categories
  • :x: using k to navigate back does not take me to the previous read article, but instead to the “previous undread”. WTFFFFF

Raven Reader

Not self hosted.
It is an app which I install on my laptop => cannot read from phone.


Template

Pros

Cons

Things I am interested in

  • the looks are pretty bad

  • must press o to “read my feed”, otherwise it only shows a list

  • does not load attachments

  • kinda difficult to organize feeds into categories

  • easy to setup

  • uses j and k for navigation

this looks pretty interesting and seems to work

they say it’s not self-hoster friendly, however someone made it work in docker. unfortunately, it needs at least 2GB of memory which is a FUCKING LOT for a simple RSS reader.

Is it worth testing? idk

this lsooks beautiful

:x: doesn’t work:
