Projects / blindRSS


blindRSS is a very simple browser-operated RSS reader. You can click through the feeds in a sidebar, use the (hopefully self-explanatory) icons next to them to manipulate them, and do all the other stuff a RSS reader should do. It's programmed so that the feeds are reread by a cronjob or daemon, while as much functionality as possible is done within the client. Thus, the server only serves the data, not the markup.
