Say “Goodbye” to Google Reader.
Google Reader has reached the end of its life with Google's second spring cleaning.
I asked around on Google+ for a free alternative with a web interface. Among the suggestion was Tiny tiny rss a php based application. This suited me as I already run a few php applications on this sever.
Setting up the application was as simple as:
- Creating a mysql user.
- Creating a database.
- Giving the user access to the database.
- Editing the config.php.
- Creating a virtual server in apache.
Importing the old subscriptions from Google Reader was also quite simple. I was able to download the subscriptions from Google Takeout in a xml format. After signing into the Tiny Tiny RSS application, the subscriptions.xml can be uploaded on the Perferences > Feeds > OPML settings page.
After which setting-up a cron job to run
path/to/install/update.php --feed will keep all the RSS feeds update to date.
