rss-box: simple self-hosted rss
About a week until Google reader goes away.
I've been building a replacement for myself: rss-box
The basic idea:
- Really Free & trivial to host locally
- A node app runs locally to fetch feeds and serve up the web interface
- No database at all, everything stored in files on the file system
- This means that if you host the node app in your dropbox, every machine syncing that dropbox stays up to date automatically (read items, etc…)
I've just been hacking here and there in my spare time, but it's become usable, (I've been using it for the last week, and am now ready for Google reader to go away) but the codebase is quite fun to hack so I thought I'd invite yous to come play.
