:boost_ok:​ , asking for recs, self hosted rss 

Hey who had suggestions for self hosted RSS aggregators that you can sync to on your (Android) phone and web browser again? I remember seeing something about it a while back, and I'm getting extremely fed up with TinyTinyRSS.

re: :boost_ok:​ , asking for recs, self hosted rss 

@_sharpLimefox I had been thinking of setting one up myself and would also be interested in recommendations.

@_sharpLimefox it might be a bit too much, but NewsBlur can be self-hosted, accessed from the web, and the Android/iOS apps allow you to log-in with a self-hosted installation.

I don't self-host it so I'm not sure how complicated the setup is.

@_sharpLimefox tinytinyrss is also developed by an actually horrible person so I don't blame you. personally I'm very satisfied with Miniflux; I believe that you can also locally download articles because it's a progressive web app but I'm a bit fuzzy on the details

re: horrible dev of self hosted rss 

@clarfonthey Oh yeah I've had to go on TTRSS' forums a couple times and I've seen the dev straight up insult users for not using the software properly, or like suggesting horrendously complex fixes to simple user comfort features.
This guy straight up gives me channer vibes and I'd not be surprised to learn that he's just an awful person overall.

Thanks for the recommendation too I'll add it to the pile of stuff to try 👍

re: horrible dev of self hosted rss 

@_sharpLimefox oh yeah, Iast I checked he had a pepe avatar and called people (slur for autistic) when they don't like his decisions. straight up convinced me to switch away

@_sharpLimefox I use Nextcloud News and I don't hate it. The Android app is nice, the web interface is 6/10
