      It looks really cool but I hate that you can't sort by publication date. Any tips for maximizing the comf?

        I never really had an issue with the way it's sorted, it seems to sort by publication date by default, but yeah here are tips for comfort:
        >If the feed only gives part of an article, run it through morss.it (something else you can self host) to generate an RSS feed containing the full article text
        >It gets even comfier when you figure out xpath and start adding custom feeds that aren't even RSS

      How do I turn that into an RSS feed?

      • 2 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        most feed readers can discover rss feeds from a page by scanning for certain tags and checking well-known rss feed urls, you just paste in the link
        substack exposes the standard <link rel="alternate"> tag

      Its really easy anon! All you have to do is copy that link and paste it in the "Add RSS feed" prompt of the app you choose. Even works with YouTube channels, Reddit threads...and a bunch more!

      Atom is better

      You get a client like https://netnewswire.com/ or a service like https://feedbin.com/ and you put feeds in it for blogs and stuff
      Then you wonder why anyone needs Substack to email people
      (Substack also has feeds)

      If you want to be even more indie you can use https://www.jsonfeed.org/
      I use it on https://navigable.space/ because it’s easier to write than Atom and I still don’t quite believe that anyone visits the site — like, using a 100,000x more popular feed format wouldn’t help

    isn't rss a constant pull based protocol? As in you're pulling for updates every few seconds, forever?
    Also when you do that doesn't it reply with the whole entire history of what happened for the last 24h or something?

    Isn't that incredibly inefficient?

      not seconds, if you provide RSS, you should ratelimit morons by minutes, hours or even days depending on the type of thing, but yes, RSS is designed for constant slop consuming, you cannot use RSS to just pull out posts from 2002

      >every few seconds
      no, usually is way higher than that, like every 90 minutes, is configurable tho, and the feed gives you a suggestion of time.
      I put most of mine to once every day, but i do admit i manually update them from time to time

            Understandable. I get notified every fifteen minutes or so but I only open the notification when I'm in the mood. Just like emails, messages, etc.
            So I don't really mind automatic updooting.

      Every half-decent RSS Reader lets you choose the interval. I have most things on twice-per-day.
      Any push-based protocol would be more noisy than that.

    I use Feeder for RSS feeds on Android. Since my phone notifies me of everything, I don't need to use RSS on the desktop.
    At work, I actually had RSS feeds in Outlook but they never worked right. They didn't refresh and I couldn't get them to refresh despite everything being configured to so I gave up.
    I have Thunderbird on my home system so I could get RSS on there I guess.

    The only real issue with RSS is that not every website you'd want a news feed from has it and the usual lack of decent client like with XMPP. It's either some overbloated Electron POS, or it's a browser extension (why), or it's the reader integrated in Thunderbird which is just barely usable but at least it's a part of something you're already running so you're not adding more background processes.

      Use RSS Guard
      >not every website you'd want a news feed from has it
      That's where the rabbit hole starts, you can create feeds even based on CSS selectors.
      https://github.com/Owyn/CSS2RSS
      >It's either some overbloated Electron POS or browser extension
      RSS Guard is not Electron and not an extension, its a proper application, but it is definitely bloated, and the bloat is well justified.
      You could run a stripped down version of it without the qtwebkit built in browser, but it will be a subpar experience and it will only prove to you that you actually do need more for a comfy experience.

        >qtwebkit built in browser
        Yeah I'm already running a web browser and Thunderbird most of the time, I don't need a third browser running in the background so I'm dealing with Thunderbird's implementation. Ideally it would all be in one program, but Vivaldi's mail client is lackluster, and SeaMonkey is SeaMonkey.
