Good morning, everyone!
Several months ago, Google announced that it was discontinuing Google
Reader, its wildly popular RSS news aggregator. In response, I set up a
private instance of Tiny Tiny RSS, a GPL-licensed news aggregator, on
WPLUG.org and invited the general public to help test it. You can read my
original announcement here.
I believe we've finally gotten all the kinks worked out. Updating to version
1.8 has fixed the speed problems, and the sharing plugins no longer
mysteriously disappear. I've also installed a couple of new themes,
including one based on Google Reader.
WPLUG's Tiny Tiny RSS server is finished. It will become a member-only
service from this point forward. If you were one of the non-members who
helped us test it, I will contact you with instructions on how to join WPLUG.
Dues are just $20 for a year of membership; you'd easily pay more than
that for a year of hosted RSS service. so Joining WPLUG is a good deal.
Since Tiny Tiny RSS is GPL software, you could conceivably install your own
instance. I want to set our server apart by offering to set up plugins for
custom keymaps or sharing services that you'd like to use. If I can't find an
existing plugin, I'll try to write one myself.
Send me an email at vicechair at wplug.org if you want to sign up for Tiny
Tiny RSS or you need help using it.
