I have cleaning up the application flora I am using. I am abit worried about how the different applications providers are using the data they gather about me. So I decided to start hosting some tools myself.
I started with the tools I use for my news and article reading. I do this by using two different tools.
FreshRSS – https://www.freshrss.org/
- FOSS – Free Open Source Software
- Web based
- Easy to import OPML files for existing subscription
- Works great on desktop with a ton of shortcuts and different views
- Works OK on iPad
Wallabag – https://github.com/wallabag/wallabag
- Web based – but was a bit quirkey to get working
- Easy to get content into – works nicely with FreshRSS
- Nice reading experience
