Read RSS feeds on Mastodon
My daily routine when it comes to staying informed of what happens in the world is to read RSS feeds from various sources. To do so, I created an account on Feedly and use their iOS App. But I noticed that I often “forget” to launch the app ; whereas I check Mastodon several times a day. So I decided to configure a Bot that will parse my RSS feeds and publish them on my Masto Home page.
Get your RSS feeds as email
When it comes too keeping informed about the (IT) world, I tried using Twitter ; and found it to be too noisy. I tried using newsboat ; but it’s not nice when you only have a phone. I tried using Feedly and Scoop.it ; but it often seems slow and redundant ; when not off-topic. Then I tried IFTTT to get my RSS feeds items send by email. And it worked really nice for a month a two. Then suddenly… it stopped working. No error message in the console, no error email, nothing… Strain As A Service… Then I discovered rss2email. And guess what… it’s available on OpenBSD . So I went for it. Simple and straightforward: configure the RSS feeds and receive the items in your mailbox.
