Tiny Tiny RSS

Update 2013.03.18: Just took Tiny Tiny RSS for a spin. It works as advertised (it collects your feeds and you can stroll through them), but I found it not that great (the concept of the reading pane just doesn’t work, some frontend bugs, couldn’t get the authentication plugin to work although it was enabled, etc.).

I also took a look at the underlying PHP code and it’s very worrisome — it looks like my PHP code from 10 years ago. Above that the project contains some half-assed attempts such as the digest mode and mobile mode (which are not implemented correctly) which got me worrying even more about the quality of the product.

Guess I’ll have to look for an other alternative …


Google recently announced that they’ll be shutting down Google Reader on July 1st. One alternative that’s been suggested to me is Tiny Tiny RSS.

Tiny Tiny RSS is an open source web-based news feed (RSS/Atom) reader and aggregator, designed to allow you to read news from any location, while feeling as close to a real desktop application as possible.

Don’t like the look and feel but might give it a shot …

Note: Digg announced that they’ll be making a Digg Reader … now, must say they’ve made me curious.
