feeds2gmail

:: Google, Racket, Atom, RSS

Recently I wrote about my my Google Reader successor, using rss2email to push feeds to Gmail.

In the month since, I was still running it on my laptop. To make it work best, it should run on a dedicated server. That way, it would push emails even if I’m away from my laptop, and I could read them on e.g. my phone. But before committing to setting this up on Amazon EC2, I wanted to be sure I liked the approach.

My Google Reader successor

Just a brief update about what I’ve settled on as my replacement for Google Reader. I’m using Rss2Email, following the instructions in Turning Gmail into Google Reader.

I tried Feedly, NewsBlur, and Reeder. Each of them wasn’t bad, but each felt “heavy” compared to Google Reader. So W. Caleb McDaniel’s post really clicked with me.
