Mojolicious RSS Aggregator

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

[Corion]: marto: Oh, I'm jealous. I'm going to see DM in Frankfurt, but it's a stadium full of people, so, rather a big thing where you mostly get to see the band on screens ;)
[marto]: yes, the last time I saw them was in Berlin a few years ago, at the old Olympic stadium
[marto]: After Sunday I don't think I'll go see them again :)
[LanX]: Corion: come on, people are people! ;)
[Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
[marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
[Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
[marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
[Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
