You can try FreshRSS. Switched to it more than a year ago and I'm very happy with it.

Well, sorry for the mild spoilers that I wrote then.

The problem with electron is that it wastes a lot of system resources.

An electron app is essentially a website/web app bundled with its own browser window.

Each electron app has a chromium instance at its base. When you run multiple electron based apps, resource usage quickly adds up, which is why electron based stuff is generally frowned up.

That movie broke so much canon that I can't even list it all. McGonagall shouldn't even have been born at that time. WTF Nagini? And the thing about his brother.

Not much. Lol.
Vox and The Atlantic are the only good ones that still provide full, ad free feeds.

For others, FreshRSS has an option to scrape content from the websites. Not ideal for sites with huge content, but it works.

Riot is way too bloaty. What do you expect from an electron app? Nhekho and fractal are great native clients. matrix.org/docs/projects/clien

However, on mobile Riot is your only choice.

Most news sites these days truncate their feeds but then there are these intelligent folks at CNN which not only omit everything of use, but are actively hostile against RSS users.

All of their feeds contain a single sentence and 10+ copies of the SAME image, in different resolutions. They force you to download a useless image multiple times.

This is definitely intentional. They are trying to bloat up your feed aggregator.

So this is my first toot on this instance. Apparently, I forgot where my previous account was.
