Tiny Tiny RSS: A very very useful RSS reader

Filed under
Software

Tiny Tiny RSS (TT-RSS) is an excellent little Web-based RSS aggregator that, despite its tiny size, sports some clever features, including an AJAXified interface, a multiuser mode, tags, content filtering, and a lightweight interface for use with mobile devices.

Although TT-RSS doesn't include an installer script, installing the application is not difficult. First, make sure that your Web server has the prerequisites installed, which include PHP and either the PostgreSQL or MySQL database engine. You will also need a database management tool such as phpMyAdmin for MySQL or phpPgAdmin for PostgreSQL.

Download and unpack the latest TT-RSS package, then rename the resulting folder into, for example, tt-rss. Next, install the database schema using the database management tool. To do this, you have to execute the appropriate SQL script located in the schema directory inside the tt-rss folder (e.g. ttrss_schema_mysql.sql for MySQL). Once the database is set up, rename the config.php-dist to config.php, open it in a text editor, and configure the database connection settings. Upload the entire tt-rss folder to your Web server and point your browser to http://yourserver/tts-rss/. If everything works properly, you should see TT-RSS's main window.

I made my own wearable computer with a Raspberry Pi, and it was almost too easy

Ever since I read about the crazy wearable pioneers back in the ‘90s and early 2000s, I've wanted a wearable computer of my own. I had two major requirements, however: it had to be a computer, and I had to be able to wear it. Smartphones, for the most part, have supplanted most people's interest in or need for a wearable computer. They're great, I highly endorse smartphones. But you can't really "wear" them in any functional way. Read more
