@kev @hund Interesting conversation about #RSS setups!

I also used newsboat exclusively (CLI FTW!) in the past. But I missed being able to pick up my feeds on a different device without losing the information where I was. So I set up a TinyTinyRSS instance on my FreedomBox.

@jk Just discovered Lagrange while I was looking for a nice client to test my server with - it truly is beautiful 🤓

I've added it as a recommended client on our install page!

I've been working on a simple server written in PHP for teaching purposes. Quite enjoying playing with this protocol 🤓
