Elfeed with Tiny Tiny RSS
If you have multiple computers and you subscribe to RSS feeds - which you probably do, it would be great if you could read the feeds from all your computers and have the feeds’ read state synchronized.
Tiny Tiny RSS runs on a server, aggregates your feeds, shows them with a web interface and exposes API for clients - such as elfeed - to consume.
To talk to ttrss, elfeed needs to know the APIs where comes elfeed-protocol to rescue. elfeed-protocol will authenticate with your ttrss server, fetch feeds and displays in elfeed like they were native feeds added to elfeed.
The setup is short:
- Install elfeed, elfeed-protocol (from melpa, or clone it)
- Setup ttrss on your server
- Configure elfeed-protocol to authenticate and fetch from ttrss
I need to
(setq elfeed-use-curl nil) because Freedombox requires me to sign in first before I can access the URL. This way, elfeed first asks me for my Freedombox creds, then uses
:password to authenticate with ttrss.
Here is my elfeed config on github: link.
