great oportunity to do something with this project

Many thanks to Fox for making this excellent service available to us all.

As of yesterday Google's reader has hundreds of angry users looking for an alternative.

See here: http://www.google.co.uk/support/forum/p ... b7d4&hl=en

This is a great opportunity to do something with TT-Rss & have an instant group of users looking for something as similar to the old google reader as possible.

I don't use GReader, but to be honest new gmail theme is not doing anything for me either. I find it severely lacking in contrast. :(

I've been switching back and forth between TTRSS and greader over the years, but the awful new UI sealed the deal for me and I'm back to TTRSS for good now. It's more fun administering my own server anyway.

I'm one of those angry Google Reader users. :-)

I just installed tt-rss on my laptop this week and got it up and running using an OPML export from Google Reader.

I blogged about my experience and opinions here: http://bre.klaki.net/blog/2012/02/16/

Probably the most interesting thing about my setup is how I use PageKite (my own project, http://pagekite.org/) to make the Android apps communicate with TT-RSS, even though it is not actually running on a publicly visible server. I like having the best of both worlds - offline reading and private RSS reader, combined with over-the-Internet and mobile access (as long as my laptop is switched on).
