29 June 2013 - Impending Judgement Day

After a long hard week fixing bugs and getting RSSKY handling every subtle variation of RSS and Atom feeds, I spent some time today making it mobile friendly.

Its not perfect but it should make using it on your mobile devices easier which will become important as Google Reader leaves us.

Let me know if there are any specific problems with anything and enjoy!


23 June 2013 - Ready for Beta

Finally we are ready for some proper usage and with Google Readers demise imminent, there is no time like the present.

RSS and Atom feeds can be added manually or imported via OPML and grouped into folders. They are polled every 20minutes for new posts which are stored in the database for 30days before being deleted permanently. During this time, they can be marked as read and unread as often as you like.

Known bugs and issues:

  • Folders don't collapse
  • User management is completely absent
  • UI is...curious
  • Preferences need a refresh sometimes to apply
  • Alphabetical sorting of feeds and folders
  • View absolutely all posts at the same time is missing
  • Rewriting feed URLs when they get a 301 response because they have changed, i.e. http://www.smbc-comics.com/rss.php
  • Improve javascript removal from posts
