Tiny Tiny RSS is a free, open-source news reader.
It needs to be installed on a web server and configured extensively before being used. It’s extremely versatile and customizable, allowing full control of both the service and the data it stores.
Con Has to be set up manually, tech-savviness and patience required
Using Tiny Tiny RSS is not as simple as creating an account on another service. Merely completing the installation procedure will take at least a few hours.
Main requirements include a physical server or a web host supporting PHP and MySQL. The know-how’s also needed, but there are several guides online that explain all the steps quite well. Anyone familiar with computers, even not being an expert, who is willing to spend some hours reading and learning should be able to set up this software.
