Researching bugs in the code of Ekster and the Reader. Or perhaps it's the hosting of the Redis server in Docker.
Testing Redis 5.0 with Reader and Ekster.
It's always strange and great to be mentioned in the Indieweb podcast. Always unexpected.

Import OPML files into Microsub servers

Some time ago I wrote a one liner to import OPML files. Now it has become a lot easier to import an OPML file with ek.

  ek import opml subscriptions.opml
  

It is also possible to export an OPML file.

  ek export opml > subscriptions.opml
  

With these two commands it becomes easier to import and export OPML files.

The format of the OPML files should match the structure of the Microsub channels and feeds. Microsub has a list of channels and each channel contains a list of feeds. If the OPML file contains feeds on the first level of the file, it will skip these. Channels in the second (or higher) level will also be skipped.


Perhaps a nice client for Microsub would be an Android app that allows you to follow a website by sharing the link.
Posting a note works great. I also like the new interface of #omnibear. It 's great that it's possible to create bookmarks now.
Trying the new Omnibear version. Let's see if this works out of the box.
Ekster shows your entries oldest first and unread only. This has advantages: you won't miss stuff the would normally have scrolled of. It also has disadvantages: all the stuff you haven't read will pile up.
It would be great to follow people from the channel itself. They're already available in the feed, so in a way they're followed. But not always, for example when you follow a feed of likes.
I just created a domain for my new Indieweb reader. It's available at https://reader.p83.nl/ The only things you need are a Indieauth and Microsub endpoint with CORS support and a web browser.
