Since I like to follow up on my RSS-feeds from multiple locations and computers, a regular desktop-based aggregator does not fit my needs. I played around in Google’s Reader, which is a very nice tool. Personally I don’t like my data to be in someone’s cloud. Although unlikely, Google can decide to sell your RSS-ing habits to the highest bidder or vaporize your hard-gathered collection of feeds.

That’s why I wanted to host a Reader-like interface on my own server. Some Googling around – yes, they do have a very good search engine – I found this wonderful, open source, PHP application: feed on feeds. Some highlights:

  • Keyboard shortcuts: read your feeds with only the keyboard, no clicking around
  • Shared items: Create an RSS-feed of interesting posts you read
  • Tagging: tag items with custom tags (manually or automatically)
