Do you use any RSS feed aggregator?
@jorge I use tiny tiny rss
@jorge last summer, I gave a try to Thunderbird and Feedly. I use mainly Feedly.
@jorge I actually use the calibre rss recipe thing! It's a very long way from perfect (like, over the horizon) but I really like it
@petra didn't know calibre was able to do that. Cool!
@vidyasagar I have a server from a hosting provider.
> [Snaps] can lead to severe security issues
I disagree. Have you seen how a snap is built using @snapcraftio tool? It can (among other things) directly pull from the latest stable tags of any GitHub repository, whenever you build it. I even believe @ubuntu offers a service to automatically refresh snaps in the snap store whenever a new commit or tag is pushed to any of the constituent repositories. That's way more up-to-date than most traditional repositories.
> [Snaps are] really only a thing in Ubuntu
I disagree. Look at https://docs.snapcraft.io/installing-snapd/6735 . It's like saying GNOME Shell is only a thing in Fedora because the majority of design and development is done by Red Hat employees.
from a system administration standpoint, when some library needs a security patch, you patch your source, then recompile and install that library. Only in one place, then anything dependent on that library uses the patched .so file.
In your model, every single program has it's own set of libraries and it's own full operating system, so when something needs patches, you have to patch every single program on the entire system separately. There is a reason *nix does not copy Windows in this regard.
I also use News. Amazing rss feed reader.
Some feeds you can recommend?
@marknj This is a weird question Almost every website on the Internet has a feed. Look which websites are YOU interested in, and follow THEM. My interests are different than yours. For a start, follow Mastodon's official blog: ttps://blog.joinmastodon.org/index.xml
Was just interested in your tech news sources. No need to share if you don't want to.
Feeder from fdroid.
@jorge I use Liferea. It meets my very simple needs.
@jorge personally I use elfeed under emacs, but the one I recommend to others is Feedly.
I've read that some folks sync their elfeed state across multiple machines by putting ~/.elfeed/ under git and then pulling as necessary, but I only use that setup for backup purposes; SSH suffices for me.
Oh, and I set up a cron job to update it on a fixed schedule, and installed a hook that uses DoIt to spawn tabs in my Firefox instance on Windows.
Netvibes, but i want to change to a self hosted in the future
I use feeder for android and quiterss on debian. No need for external server and allow me to categorize feeds as I want them.
Also, as they both use OPML to back up, I can easily sync them
@jorge newsblur. I've always been very happy with it.
@jorge Thanks for asking this question! The topic and the replies have been useful
@Cornellbox Yeah, amazing! So many options! 😀
@jorge I've had TT-RSS on my webserver since the day Google Reader shut down. It just works.
I use newsblur and like that the most, but I've also successfully used tt-rss and Nextcloud news. Somehow newsblur seems the snappiest on mobile. I'm using the centralised server though.
@jorge Newsblur. I like it enough to pay for it.
Yep. Currently Inoreader, but I'm interested in switching to the paid form of Newsblur. :)
Uso AntennaPod. Te permite añadir rss y podcasts 😉.
@maperal yo lo estoy usando para los podcasts :)
