Introducing: feedmug.com

    Hi,

Once again I’m writing after long-long time here. But boy, it feels great today. For today, I introduce you to

feedmug is an RSS feeds reader that’s been occupying my hours lately. It all started sometime in the October of last year, when ask.com decided to close down Bloglines. I used to like Bloglines. But by the time it was bought over by MerchantCircle, I’d switched back to Google reader, though there’s something very distracting about it. Before long I switched to Liferea, and then to Sage extension. In less than 15 days I had jumped from one reader to another and yet none of them seemed very good. Sometimes it surprises me how quickly I give up things or give up on things. Anyway, so that’s when I started working on – Feeds reader.

Today, after six months, I’m really happy to see how it has shaped up so far. And I think may be you would find it useful too.

feedmug supports:

  • RSS/Atom/RDF feed formats.
  • import & export functions.
  • Handy keyboard shortcuts.
  • Custom themes.

Known issues:

  • Limited usage of CSS.
  • Uses html tables for page layout, which sort of restricts the scope for theme creation.

These issues are there, because when I started, I barely knew how to write HTML, let alone JavaScript and CSS and sessions and cookies etc. I was more of an accidental web developer than a pro. My goal was to get myself a decent feed reader. Now since that is done, we can surely leverage on it and look forward to some nice changes and features in the future.

Overall – feedmug aims to provide you the best reading experience possible.

With that, I would like to invite you to give it a try. I’m sure you’d find it useful. If you have any comments or suggestions please do let me know, I’d be glad to hear them.

My sincere thanks to everybody who helped along with their critical inputs and suggestions. And special thanks to Kushal for being a generous hosting provider, and to Satya for the logo design.

Thank you. 🙂

PS: I’d really appreciate it if you could help me spread the word about it.

  1. Dude, you’re welcome 🙂 But wait till we have the logo at least!
    BTW, don’t forget the long list of RFEs I have for you.

    @others… this one’s a hurried makeshift as someone was so eager to push it out that he… ah nevermind. Oh and yeah people, customised themes with names that don’t remind the project owner of pretty faces are not acceptable.

    1. Ummn…work is under progress for the forgot password page. Meanwhile, I can change it and send it to you. You reset it again once you login. Hope that’ll help. 🙂

      1. Sure I would be, in-fact I had that in mind. But it’ll take some time. For now, forgot password page will be more handy.
        Thanks.
