( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I created a single user Mojolicious based RSS aggregator. It uses PostgreSQL for its database. I had attempted to use SQLite when I first started but I ran into some problems with reliability and I have not had much of a need to go back.

It is pretty minimal for Mojolicious use as well a JavaScript to get the work done.

I have been using it everyday for several months and it has been quite stable. At the moment it is a single file script.

I wrote it to be usable from a desktop web browser but also from a mobile browser as well. I only have access to an Android Galaxy S3 so I cannot say how well it will work on iPhones or other devices.

Here are some features

  • Mobile friendly
  • Can favorite items
  • Can delete news items that are older than X amount of days you choose
  • Fairly light weight when it comes to the web client with respect to JavaScript
  • You mark all current news items as read
  • You will only see items that have current news
  • If you are on a long list of news items you can jump back to the top of the page quite easily

You can find it here on GitHub
