Feed the Monkey: A Tiny Tiny RSS Desktop Client

Feed the Monkey is an Open Source desktop feed reader client for the Tiny Tiny RSS service – which is also Open Source.

It uses Tiny Tiny’s official RSS API to fetch ‘normalized feeds and to synchronize the “article read” marks’.  Feed the Monkey RSS desktop client is written in C++ with Qt and QML which makes it suitable for cross-platform usage.

 

Of course, this implies that Feed the Monkey works with only Tiny Tiny RSS – other RSS services like Feedly, Feedbin, or even local feeds will be available via the desktop client. , etc. This also means you need to be running Tiny Tiny RSS on a server somewhere, too.

On top of that you will need to be running Tiny Tiny RSS on a server somewhere, too.

As for installing on your Ubuntu, you will need to compile it manually as it doesn’t have any pre-built packages available for Ubuntu yet. Arch Linux users are lucky at least. They get to install Feed the Monkey via AUR.
