Evergreen is an open source, productivity-style feed reader for Macs.
It’s at a very early stage — we use it, but we don’t expect other people to use it yet.
Not for me unfortunately, since I do almost all of my RSS reading on my iPad, but I’m so interested to see the release build. Oh, and Evergreen will be free!
With all the changes I made today, I went ahead and added support for Brent Simmons’ and Manton Reece’s JSON Feed. You can find it in the footer of any page on Infinite Diaries or at https://infinitediaries.net/feed/json/. It’s simple enough for WordPress installations — all you need to do is to download the plugin from here and follow the instructions:
/feed/json URL to your WordPress site. Drop the plugin folder in
/wp-content/plugins and activate under WP Admin → Plugins.
P.S. After seeing how Titillium Web renders a double slash (//), I’m going to need to look for a new font. Not a fan of its italics either.
Brent Simmons and I were guests on The Talk Show this week. We talk about JSON Feed, Userland Frontier, Micro.blog, and much more.
Brent also announced Evergreen for the first time on the show. Evergreen is a new open source feed reader for the Mac. I’m really looking forward to where this app could go.
Finished listening to it last night — lots of great details and tidbits I wasn’t aware of. Well worth a listen.
