Miniflux

Miniflux is a simple fast web based RSS reader.

Its quick and easy to install. Only needing a webserver and php. Data is stored in SQLITE.

Most importantly:

  1. Responsive design. So it works with mobile devices and desktops.
  2. Open source. So it can be self hosted. Or if you want the developer offers a hosted version.
  3. It respects privacy and doesn’t throw advertising at you. Thats not to say that subscribed RSS feeds don’t though.

I’ve used Miniflux on and off over the years. Recently returning to it. To better keep track of the more outlying websites that I like to read but sometimes forget.

Its a straightforward application that does one thing really well. This is where the web is great. A web application hosted online thats accessible from everywhere with no local installation required. Take that mobile apps!

Note that the self hosted route, requires some server side knowledge and a host for it to live on.

Highly recommended.
