Been looking at both Tiny Tiny RSS and Huginn lately. I'll probably set up a tt-rss server soon but Huginn's gonna take a little while longer.
Might post a guide for setting up tt-rss with Docker and an nginx reverse-proxy container
@brandon haha I was using (and am still running it now) the linuxserver.io docker image for tt-rss, but that's not getting any updates since the tt-rss dev is a bit inflammatory and the linuxserver people didn't want to deal with that.
I have to migrate it to another setup, probably will make my own Dockerfile and stuff, but I don't have time for that right now...
@Matter I actually used the dockerfile provided by the dev https://git.tt-rss.org/fox/ttrss-docker-compose.git
@brandon works, but it's an anti-pattern since the code is updated every time you run it. That's also why I don't want to use it.
@Matter Actually that's not true. It'll only update the first time you run it
I read this as pulling master if the directory already exists, else make the directory and then clone master
@Matter o.o I didn't see that, oh boy. Suppose you could easily modify that though
@brandon i use ttrss. Wish there was a more feature rich rss app, but this one does the trick. It has filtering and the ability to make filtered categories into their own rss feeds.... I use it to sort through the 100+ k articles that the 400 news sources I use firehouse into the world every week.
@ejnunya you can also export an OPML file of all the feeds you have, including the categories, and import that into any mobile RSS app
@brandon prefer to use the ttrss mobile app on fdroid
@ejnunya even over something like Feeder: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.nononsenseapps.feeder/ ?
@brandon With the ttrss app, i can star, publish, mark as read, etc and those actions are reflected on the ttrss web instance. By exporting the feeds and using another reader you lose all that since it's two apps performing the same function independently from each other
@ejnunya Fair enough 🤔 Actually you know what, the official app looks decent enough, I wouldn't switch away from it either
@brandon it's really not too bad. The only way I'd switch is for an app with a flipboard-esque interface that uses ttrss api so I don't lose the functionality I need. I've tried a bunch of systems and this one works the best for me.
