Whats a good server-side RSS aggregator for mobile devices?
October 7, 2004 12:16 AM   Subscribe

I am looking for a good server side rss aggregator that will give results in a very simple manner for mobile devices. I would use bloglines but their interface is a mess of frames and things. I'm looking for a few, maybe 10, feeds presented in flat text. MySQL is ok if required.

I found this thing called Feeds on Feeds. It seems to use frames though, which not be good for mobile devices. If you're a coder, however, it should be hackable. It seems to be written in PHP, so you'd just need to change the presentation logic and leave the backend.

FOF doesn't have to use frames. You have a choice. It is really easy to set up. I use it all the time. It is the bong.

Second the recommendation for FoF. (Does require MySQL and helps to have a cron update job setup though.)

Bong-doli.

Second recommendation for http://www.bloglines.com/mobile (it's what I use on my phone) and Feed on Feeds (it's what I use when I want to roll my own aggregation site). Feed on Feeds doesn't need to have frames, just go straight to the main frame.

i tried zFeeder, but it's ehh... Anyway, i didn't see bloglines/mobile so that's great. I'm not looking for a replacement full time so the less work the better. Thanks!
