Strip TT-RSS to it's minimum

I'm trying to strip TT-RSS to its minimum level possible. So that I'm just left over with only necessary features like:

1. RSS Reader (SimplePie) with AJAX.
2. Preferences.
3. Keyboard shortcuts.

I also want to remove external JS libraries that aren't necessary to provide fancy visual effects, graphics etc.

Currently I'm trying to remove references to dojo, dijit and other unnecessary JS libraries that aren't that much necessary for a Simple RSS Reader with AJAX.

Please guide me if I'm going wrong. If you know how to do that please help me as soon possible.

Wouldn't it be easier to build a HTML/JS client that uses the TT-RSS API instead?

or better yet, make your own backend with your own API, with no blackjack and zero hookers

If I were to do that why would I ask to strip down TT-RSS here?

Let me tell you that since Google is shutting down Google Reader on 1st July this year. I was searching for alternative RSS Reader. I found many and I've tried all most of them (free ones) but Tiny Tiny RSS is the only thing I like from my heart. Currently I'm running TT-RSS on my server (Nginx, PHP, MySQL and Fedora) for personal use. And I love the way TT-RSS works. It's like Google Reader running on my own server. I want to contribute to TT-RSS development. So that's the reason I asked this question - Strip TT-RSS to it's minimum.

Or atleast can anyone tell me which files were created by TT-RSS's author (fox) (apart from external libraries) and what does those file do in brief.

Very funny! :) I was expecting answers like this:

index.php - Main file which processes RSS Feeds (Required)
lib/dojo/dojo.js - Library for easing our work (Optional)
[...]

from what I can tell, if you remove baad files you remove dijit from your ajax but when you remove good files you remove rss from your feeds.

or something.
