What is FeedOnFeeds?
FeedOnFeeds is a lightweight server-based RSS aggregator and reader, allowing you to keep up with syndicated content (blogs, comics, and so forth) without having to keep track of what you've read. Being server-based means all of your feeds and history are kept in one place, and being lightweight means you can install it pretty much anywhere without needing a fancy dedicated server or the like.
FeedOnFeeds 0.5 is originally written by Steve Minutillo. This is a fork of FeedOnFeeds 0.5 by Vitaliy Filippov.
FeedOnFeeds is distributed under the terms of GNU GPL v2 license, see LICENSE.
New features in this version compared to the original 0.5
- Performance of all queries is greatly improved, basically almost everything is fast even if you have lots of unread and/or tagged items (100000+)
- HTTP proxy support through standard environment variables http_proxy, no_proxy
- Password-protected feed support (HTTP basic/digest)
- Personal feed rename support (each user can rename feeds to his will)
- Possible to set tags for a feed when adding it
- The view is paged by default (you have to specify a big limit by hand to view all items)
- Mass feed tagging/untagging from the preferences page
- Per-feed and per-item collapse settings: you can set some feeds to show all items collapsed by default or you can configure a regular expression which will specify items that should be collapsed by default in each feed
- Most popular feed suggestions on the subscribe page
- Top reader statistics on the login page
- Very simple CSS-based mobile view
- Tables are using InnoDB, UTF-8 encoding, and foreign keys
- Code is cleaned of PHP warnings/notices and compatible with PHP 5.4+
- PHP mysqli extension is used instead of deprecated mysql
- Implement safer authentication (sessions?) than current password-hash-in-cookie
- Replace SimplePie (not "simple" in any way) with something simpler and faster... (MagPie?)
- Dynamic feed update times, similar to https://github.com/RomanSixty/Feed-on-Feeds
- Use multi-cURL to download feeds in parallel
- A web server running PHP 5 or later (nginx + php5-fpm or Apache).
- PHP extensions: mysqli/mysqlnd, XML, PCRE, cURL, Zlib, mbstring, iconv.
- MariaDB/MySQL 5 or later. MariaDB 5.5 or later with Barracuda storage format (innodb_file_format = barracuda) is recommended.
Download a snapshot or checkout code from git repository into installation directory.
Create 'cache' directory inside installation directory and make it writable by the web server.
Create a MySQL database and a user with full access to it. If MySQL server is on the same host it looks like:
CREATE DATABASE feedonfeeds; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON feedonfeeds.* TO feedonfeeds@localhost IDENTIFIED BY '<password>'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Copy fof-config-sample.php to fof-config.php and edit FOF_DB_HOST, FOF_DB_USER, FOF_DB_PASS and FOF_DB_DBNAME as appropriate for your newly created database.
