party we going to let the news for a day aside to discuss news, of how we got them. As you know the stroke of Google Reader still resonates with service users and have spread to a number of options interesting . For my part, I went wandering to fall again in Akregator. Let me tell you the trip.
The day after the announcement of Google and like many others I published a couple of articles talking about alternatives Reader . The first, in MuyComputer, was of a more general and web-only alternatives for third party services. The second I read, ‘here in MuyLinux and, evidently, had as protagonists desktop applications penguin system.Personally
wanted something as close to Google Reader: a web service that you can access from any web browser , with list view mode and a couple of details I will discuss later. Of those tested, and The Old Reader Feedly were more consistent choices. But as I am not willing to change your web browser to use Feedly only (one pass only works in Chrome and Firefox, the latter in that way) and The Old Reader is pretty green and it lacks an option to consider fundamental (power organize fonts by folder), I served for none.
articles published as linked and kept under the same (I tried many more than I said) I came up RssMiner, other web-based aggregator, this time Open Source . And the truth is that is not bad, but we were still missing options for my taste. Then I jumped into “móntatelo yourself” and tried it on my server with Selfoss, an alternative that piqued my curiosity but I did not get installed first. Then I tried Tiny Tiny RSS, a marvel with whom I stayed for a few days until I had to update and … In short, I am old to do things as I like to give them to me made some .
Tiny Tiny RSS
Tiny Tiny RSS
At this point I was a little tired of the subject, however it is an indispensable tool for me and in a fit of madness I tried a few days with the integrated RSS reader Opera . The result was close to disaster, mainly because of the way it operates and organizes refresh your sources … so, go. In addition, cold thinking, to see if the next version of Opera retains the feature or not. And I turned to Akregator.Total
, I still run with the default KDE, but I was flying home with a detail that I liked Tiny Tiny RSS and Opera: able to tag items much more precise as with Google Reader. One feature that comes in handy for me organize myself better (Akregator not have this function), but (trick): you can filter the items marked as important changing folder (each folder name tag serves).
Not happy at all and yesterday I got to take a look back. QuiteRSS I met a client RSS in Qt platform and really complete . Quite a surprise. If KDE users out there who are not convinced Akregator you, do not hesitate to try QuiteRSS, an application that is also in full swing (yesterday released its latest version). It has lots of options and, yes, the ability to tag pleasure (or articles to share directly to Facebook, Twitter, Evernote or Pocket). I repeat: here’s an alternative class exhibit that I forgot the other day because he did not know (it’s free software, of course). In Qt-Apps find the source code and installers for different distributions.
Akregator the moment I am with, but I’ve realized what the alternatives that best suit me and could change eventually QuiteRSS or, better still, to Tiny Tiny RSS. At any rate, I’ll take those three. Speaking from the point of view ‘gnomero’ or ‘ubuntero’, however, the application that I like and gives me more pain (also I forgot to name it the other day, I got stuck in Liferea) is Lightread-a winner Ubuntu App Showdown- a visual treat that will surely die along with Google Reader , it is not just a mask it. Hopefully developers dare and give “full powers”, because he deserves it.Your turn
what application or service you use you?
