Frederick is a web-based feed reader (RSS, Atom). It’s simple, and should “just work”.
Installation & running
- Some server (Only UNIX/Linux was tested, Windows may or may not work)
- Python 3 (Python 2 will not work)
- py-sqlite3 (Included in Python, sometimes a separate package)
To start the server, run
serve.py, this will start a HTTP server port 8000.
You can optionally add a server & port to listen on as
Note that there’s no authentication, you almost certainly don’t want to run this on a publicly accessible server.
Frederick should work on any size device, but will probably have problems in older browsers (such as IE8 and earlier).
Feeds automatically are updated on pageview if the last update was more than 30 minutes ago.
You can also run
update.py to update Frederick, you probably want to run this
from cron to prevent ‘gaps’ in your item list.
