Looking for a Google Reader replacement?

Looking for a Google Reader replacement? Run your own web server? Stick a copy of tt-rss (which, presumably not coincidentally, is displaying its ‘high traffic emergency page’ at present) on it and be happy. It works nicely, is simple to set up, and has a rather good Android app in the Store (ad-supported and paid versions available). Don’t run your own web server? I can’t help you, but enjoy being at the mercy of frivolous giants. ;)

    I guess that using openshift ( http://log.amitshah.net/2012/10/setting-up-your-free-private-feed-reader/ ) can also help for those that do not have their own server.

    Out of curiousity, do you know why tt-rss isn’t packaged for Fedora? It seems like something that would be generally useful, but it’s not in there. I’m wondering if there are licensing concerns with it.

    Thanks for this post, Adam. I have friends who use Reader religiously, and now, I can help them get over it – and convert them to Linux at the same time.

    How about the Bamboo feed reader plugin for Firefox? It’s very nice, and it’s Free Software.

    Co-worker put together a quickstart for tt-rss for OpenShift https://github.com/wshearn/tinytinyrss-example/blob/master/README.md …. enjoy :)
