Yes! RSS (“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:

  • Feeder
    • more modern, lightweight, receives updates
    • actually analyzes if it can read the feed, before adding (very good! as there are a lot of different formats)
    • takes a few minutes to get used to
  • Digisocken’s RSS reader app

    • old, outdated, can not deal with a lot of formats
    • warning! consumes a lot of cpu & ram (only install on smart phones with fast hardware)



This (a bit old but still) excellent App turns the user’s Android based device into an independent Open Source based news aggregator

If the user rather wants to read RSS Feeds on the Desktop/Laptop/Workstation/PC Thunderbird can do that.

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))
    • best practice it-security – stay up to date on it-security with rss feeds blogs and via mail – there is no “done” – Lists of Vulnerability Flaw lists CVE – Common Vulnerabilities Exposures

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

        together all of the content from your favorite web subscriptions into a simple

          TheOldReader support;
        • downloading articles for offline reading;
        • permanently saving headlines in news bins;
        • playing podcasts directly in Liferea’s browser interface;

    • 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).

      Privacy Questions.

      If you have any questions or concerns about my Privacy Policy or data processing, please contact me.

  2. browse to the user’s favorite website an attach rss: https://dwaves.org/rss
    • under LineageOS: Firefox App automatically detects that it is a rss feed and asks the user to open in “Another RSS Feeder” App, EXCELLENT 🙂
  3. or: search for “NewsPaper that the user wants to subscribe + rss” on https://duckduckgo.com
    1. https://www.fsf.org/rss
    2. not all news outlest publish their rss feeds like https://domain.com/rss (unfortunately)

more rss feeds to subscribe to:

no rss?

if a news outlet or website does not have a rss feed, mail them! (it is a shame)

RSS news on desktop? Yes! Thunderbird can also do that!

how to subscribe to blogs websites news sites via thunderbird and rss feed – why is it imho better than a newsletter

PS: diaspora social network should really export RSS feeds too… but it is so slow already probably would slow it down even more

rewrite under GPL in RUST! 🙂
