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.

  • A history about Gtk+, Vulkan and Wayland
    A few weeks ago, I was curious to test Gtk+ 4. I know it has some awsome features like OpenGL rendering, major cleanups and other hot stuff, but didn’t have the chance to check it out until then. I was mostly excited about Vulkan. I know both of my laptop’s graphic cards support Vulkan. It’s a hybrid Intel Broadwell G2 + NVidia GeForce 920M, although I don’t use the latter because Linux sucks hard with Dual GPU. Downloaded the latest Gtk+ source, compiled and… nothing. Immediate segmentation fault. Yay! What a great chance to get involved with the next major Gtk+ version development!
  • GNOME Developer On GTK4: State-of-the-Art of Toolkit Support
    GNOME developer Georges Stavracas has shared his thoughts on the state of the GTK4 tool-kit with the recent work involving a Vulkan renderer, including which also now works on Wayland. Georges Stavracas was excited to try the current state of GTK4 development but initially hit a segmentation fault. But after overcoming that, he was successful in running GTK4 on Wayland and the widgets being rendered by Vulkan. He commented on his blog, "May not be as exciting, since there are no new visible features but… damn, it’s Gtk+ being rendered with Vulkan on Wayland. It’s basically the state-of-the-art of toolkit support right now. Even better, the absolute majority of applications will gain this for free once they port to Gtk+ 4 series."
