FreshRSS

FreshRSS is a self-hosted RSS feed aggregator.

It is lightweight, easy to work with, powerful, and customizable.

It is a multi-user application with an anonymous reading mode. It supports custom tags. There is an API for (mobile) clients, and a Command-Line Interface.

Thanks to the WebSub standard, FreshRSS is able to receive instant push notifications from compatible sources, such as Friendica, WordPress, Blogger, Medium, etc.

FreshRSS natively supports basic Web scraping, based on XPath, for Web sites not providing any RSS / Atom feed.

Different login methods are supported: Web form (including an anonymous option), HTTP Authentication (compatible with proxy delegation), OpenID Connect.

Finally, FreshRSS supports extensions for further tuning.

Documentation

Requirements

  • A recent browser like Firefox / IceCat, Edge, Chromium / Chrome, Opera, Safari.
    • Works on mobile (except a few features)
  • Light server running Linux or Windows
    • It even works on Raspberry Pi 1 with response time under a second (tested with 150 feeds, 22k articles)
  • A web server: Apache2.4+ (recommended), nginx, lighttpd (not tested on others)
  • PHP 7.4+
  • PostgreSQL 9.5+ or SQLite or MySQL 5.5.3+ or MariaDB 5.5+

Installation

The latest stable release can be found here. New versions are released every two to three months.

If you want a rolling release with the newest features, or want to help testing or developing the next stable version, you can use the edge branch.

Automated install

  • Docker
  • YunoHost
  • Cloudron
  • PikaPods

Manual install

  1. Get FreshRSS with git or by downloading the archive
  2. Put the application somewhere on your server (expose only the ./p/ folder to the Web)
  3. Add write access to the ./data/ folder for the webserver user
  4. Access FreshRSS with your browser and follow the installation process
  5. Everything should be working :) If you encounter any problems, feel free to contact us.
  6. Advanced configuration settings can be found in config.default.php and modified in data/config.php.
  7. When using Apache, enable AllowEncodedSlashes for better compatibility with mobile clients.

More detailed information about installation and server configuration can be found in our documentation.

Advice

  • For better security, expose only the ./p/ folder to the Web.
    • Be aware that the ./data/ folder contains all personal data, so it is a bad idea to expose it.
  • The ./constants.php file defines access to the application folder. If you want to customize your installation, look here first.
  • If you encounter any problem, logs are accessible from the interface or manually in ./data/users/*/log*.txt files.
    • The special folder ./data/users/_/ contains the part of the logs that are shared by all users.

FAQ

  • The date and time in the right-hand column is the date declared by the feed, not the time at which the article was received by FreshRSS, and it is not used for sorting.
    • In particular, when importing a new feed, all of its articles will appear at the top of the feed list regardless of their declared date.

Extensions

FreshRSS supports further customizations by adding extensions on top of its core functionality. See the repository dedicated to those extensions.

APIs & native apps

FreshRSS supports access from mobile / native apps for Linux, Android, iOS, Windows and macOS, via two distinct APIs: Google Reader API (best), and Fever API (limited features and less efficient).
