FeedReader: RSS desktop client

There are a number of news feed readers available on Linux (e.g., canto, newsbeuter or tickr). Then there was Lightread, a disruptive feed reader which got discontinued. We came across FeedReader, a fresh Linux RSS client developed for awesomeness. FeedReader delivers a seamless experience with your daily news digest. Visually appealing, the look and feel of FeedReader reminds of Lightread. Currently it supports feedly and Tiny Tiny RSS as source.

Features

  • Desktop notifications
  • Fast search and filters
  • Full articles instead of previews for known sites
  • Tagging (plugin needed for Tiny Tiny RSS)
  • Sharing to “read-it-later” services like Pocket and Instapaper
  • Handy keyboard shortcuts
  • Keep all your old articles as long as you like
  • Consistent formating of articles
  • automatically saved state of the UI
