Top 23 rss-reader Open-Source Projects

  • FreshRSS

    A free, self-hostable news aggregator…

  • Project mention: RSS is still pretty great | | 2024-02-11

    Why not provide a URL for your recommendation?

  • NetNewsWire

    RSS reader for macOS and iOS.

  • Project mention: RSS is still pretty great | | 2024-02-11

    NetNewsWire is excellent. Clean, responsive, blends into the desktop, and doesn't have memory leak issues like so many macOS RSS readers do. I wish all software could be like it.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • NewsBlur

    NewsBlur is a personal news reader that brings people together to talk about the world. A new sound of an old instrument.

  • Project mention: Google helped destroy adoption of RSS feeds | | 2024-02-24

    I use Newsblur, it’s open source and you can self host, but for the price of the service, I am happy to pay. There are apps for most every platform.

  • fluent-reader

    Modern desktop RSS reader built with Electron, React, and Fluent UI

  • Project mention: RSS and why I believe most people should come back using them | | 2024-05-15

    Been using Fluent for a while now.

    I like that it lets you specify to open pages as RSS or full webpage, some sites don't feed their RSS well so full webpage fixes it.

  • ALL-about-RSS

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

  • Project mention: Google helped destroy adoption of RSS feeds | | 2024-02-24 perhaps?

  • ReadYou

    An Android RSS reader presented in Material You style.

  • Project mention: Missing features RSS news app | /r/rss | 2023-12-06

    This is the app i am using now. If there is any aspect of this app that I am not very satisfied with, it would be the article translation function and the lack of push notifications. Wish my comments can help you.🫡

  • stringer

    A self-hosted, anti-social RSS reader.

  • Project mention: Post Will Not Go Viral | | 2023-09-14

  • emacs-application-framework

    EAF, an extensible framework that revolutionizes the graphical capabilities of Emacs

  • Project mention: EAF stuck saying "EAF/browser Opening" | /r/DoomEmacs | 2023-07-10
  • CommaFeed

    Google Reader inspired self-hosted RSS reader.

  • Project mention: Google helped destroy adoption of RSS feeds | | 2024-02-24

    I've been using commafeed for a few months now. The UI is closest thing to GReader I've seen. It's still light on features and no plugin option yet. But it works well and gets frequent updates.

  • Selfoss

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

  • Project mention: With Reddit sunsetting, I'm looking back to RSS. What are the best current tools? | /r/selfhosted | 2023-06-09

    I liked selfoss for self hosting. For some reason a good portion of RSS Readers have really convoluted setups. Selfoss is easy with a docker (compose).

  • plain-app

    PlainApp is an open-source application that allows you to manage your phone through a web browser. Access files, videos, music, contacts, sms, calls, and more from your desktop using a secure, easy to use web interface!

  • Project mention: These giant baby users are not welcome | /r/plainapp | 2023-07-13

    If you find any bugs please file tickets on

  • vienna-rss

    Vienna is a free and open-source RSS/Atom newsreader for macOS.

  • rssguard

    Feed reader (and podcast player) which supports RSS/ATOM/JSON and many web-based feed services.

  • Project mention: Looking for reader with ability to create custom feeds | /r/rss | 2023-05-25

    Few samples of such scripts:

  • rss-parser

    A lightweight RSS parser, for Node and the browser

  • Project mention: The Voxgig Podcast Chatbot: Triggering Ingestion, and some Debugging DX | | 2024-03-22

    We get the individual episode details from the items property of the RSS (we parse it using the rss-parser package) to handle RSS variants. We loop over each episode and emit a process:episode event for each one.

  • fluent-reader-lite

    Simplistic mobile RSS client built with Flutter

  • Project mention: Why your blog still needs RSS | | 2023-08-19

    Also happy with miniflux. On android, I use Fluent Reader to sync:

  • FeedKit

    An RSS, Atom and JSON Feed parser written in Swift

  • osmosfeed

    Turn GitHub into an RSS reader

  • Project mention: Ask HN: What are your favorite RSS feeds? | | 2023-07-06

    You may be interested in Osmosfeed:

    It is a static site feed aggregator primarily designed to go with GitHub Pages. I host one to aggregate my own writing on different sites. I think it may fit your use case because your Osmosfeed site itself outputs a single Atom feed. So, for example, if I have an Osmosfeed site that aggregates feeds 1, 2, and 3, the Osmosfeed site has a single feed which will include the three individual feeds. Mine has about 10-12 feeds and it has worked perfectly thus far with no issues. Not sure if it would have problems at higher numbers.

  • news

    :newspaper: RSS/Atom feed reader

  • Project mention: Artifact Is Shutting Down | | 2024-01-12

    Nextcloud running the News app [1] on your own server, either an old laptop/desktop or a SBC like a Raspberry/Orange/Banana/${fruit} Pi. You'll get total control over whatever you do with the thing, as much 'free' cloud storage as you want and loads of other possible services. It runs fine on a Raspberry Pi 4 or one of the equivalent boards from other manufacturers.

    Source: I've been running this before the Owncloud/Nextcloud split, it works as advertised.
