The Old Reader

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • - Download’s Tech Salary Report
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • ALL-about-RSS

    A list of RSS related stuff: tools, services, communities and tutorials, etc.

    There hasn't been a lot of players in this area lately, perhaps you should take a look to this Awesome RSS

    Self hosting TTRSS and using the API to access it from third party software could be a solution if you don't like the official TTRSS web client.

  • fraidycat

    Follow blogs, wikis, YouTube channels, as well as accounts on Twitter, Instagram, etc. from a single page.

    Fraidycat looks good, though it's more like a client than a self-hosted service. I especially like that it can follow / aggregate a bunch of different types of sources.

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • Selfoss

    multipurpose rss reader, live stream, mashup, aggregation web application

    I've been using selfoss since Google Reader shut down. It's nothing special, but it's been running without problems for many years now without any issues

  • Miniflux

    Minimalist and opinionated feed reader

    Account but don’t sign in via google. Feedly noticed my account was a google account and kept trying to redirect me to googles login. Support wasn’t helpful, and only responded when I posted a workaround on Reddit/twitter.

    Anyway at that point I started looking for alternatives. And ultimately landed on the older reader and miniflux. Frankly I am still on miniflux.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
