Yes!

What RSS does NOT stand for “Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh” , “Nathuram Godse, who assassinated Gandhi, on January 30, 1948, was a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, or R.S.S., a violent right-wing organization that promotes Hindu supremacy.” (src: HolyCow!)

RSS stands for (“Really Simple Syndication“) FEEDs are still a very practical thing to follow certain websites & blogs & news outlets & aggregators & stay current on those platforms.

  • Instead of letting big media outlets shovel news indiscriminately down the main-stream’s throat,
  • it would be wiser, to run one’s own news-aggregator
  • that tries to pull in news from the sources the user likes & trusts (hopefully content of high quality and truthfulness / “neutral” (unbiased) reporting)

RSS Apps let’s the user subscribe to many many websites, blogs, news-outlets, platforms WITHOUT (!) leaving a mail-address for spammer to extract and exploit (unsubscribing is as easy as setting: delete URL from the Appp’s settings)

Want to stay up to day with the latest news? News Junky?

try:

apt search rss – what’s in the repo?

Problem: RSS is somewhat standardized, but there are many versions and not ONE standard file format for ( check if a website’s rss-format is valid rss with this online-tool: https://validator.w3.org/feed/), some apps such such as this one does not support them all, here is an RSS 2.0 sample file (rss checker still not satisfied)

  • tested and works: (when RSS app is installed, subscribing is as simple as tapping those links from Firefox.apk (at least in LinageOS-Android))

DigiSocken (very old and never updated) RSS App:

  • it’s a well done app, but it was not updated in decades
  • it has troubles subscribing to some RSS feeds that does not comply with what it considers “standard”
  • so it’s better to use Feeder App, as it has a “analyze feed” function, that does a check, if the App can read the feed
    • it can read most, but not all X-D as
      • no kidding, some feeds divert so much from a standard, that it will refuse to read it X-D
      • if a feed “should” be readable, can be validated via: https://validator.w3.org/feed/)

by the way those settings are saved to:

/data/data/de.digisocken.anotherrss/shared_prefs/de.digisocken.anotherrss_preferences.xml

(which is only reachable via ssh)

in case the user wants to backup or transfer this list to a new device

THE MOST IMPORTANT SETTING TO PUT “ON CLICK(TOUCH) OPEN ARTICLE IN BROWSER (APP)”

it does not do it per default: go to EINSTELLUNGEN (Settings): go to “Tipp-Verhalten” (Touch-Behaviour) and select “öffne im Browser” (Open in Browser)

 

  • The App AnotherRSS is a Atom RSS Feed Reader and very similar to ViboraFeed.”
  • show me the Source Code: https://github.com/no-go/AnotherRSSWebsite: https://no-go.github.io/AnotherRSShardware requirements:
    • independent news needs some hardware power:
      • fast phone (CPU & RAM)
      • fast inet connection/WiFi recommended
  • RSS Desktop programs: (untested!)
    • thunderbird can do it
    • lifera:
      • Description: feed/news/podcast client with plugin support
        Liferea is a feed reader, a news reader, and a podcast client that brings
        together all of the content from your favorite web subscriptions into a simple
        interface with an embedded graphical browser that’s easy to organize and
        browse.
        It supports:

        • aggregating feeds in all the major syndication formats (including
          RSS/RDF, Atom, CDF, and more);
        • synchronizing feeds across devices, with TinyTinyRSS and
          TheOldReader support;
        • downloading articles for offline reading;
        • permanently saving headlines in news bins;
        • playing podcasts directly in Liferea’s browser interface;
        • social networking / web integration so you can share your favorite news
          articles to Facebook, Google+, Reddit, Twitter, Slashdot, Digg, Yahoo and
          many more.
    • https://lzone.de/liferea/blog/Liferea-1.13.8-Released
    • https://github.com/lwindolf/liferea

easy to get started:

  1. install the app: (for whatever reason Nexus 6P + LineageOS refuses to install the signed App)
    1. https://f-droid.org/en/packages/de.digisocken.anotherrss/
    2. so here is a backup of (working fine) App version: 2.22_222
    3. Non-Personal information is being collected by this App!

    4. the author says: “I DO NOT collect non-personal information like user’s behavior:”

      • to solve App problems
      • to show personalized ads

      The google play store collect non-personal information such as the data of install (country and equipment).
