Again and again it is mentioned as an elementary advantage of Mastodon & Co. that ActivityPub-feeds are accessible from everywhere thanks to RSS. That’s true - but I don’t have the right reader for such a purpose. I would like to have a doomscrolling-timeline for all the services that are accessible via RSS, not an article-reader like RSS clients usually are - with previews, open article, etc.
Is there an app like ‘Fritter’ that not only allows access to Twitter, but also to follow accounts via Nitter, Mastodon, PeerTube, etc. etc.? Can be for Android or Windows…
A community dedicated to fediverse news and discussion.
Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
Getting started on Fediverse;
@oliver the Friendica social platform includes a fantastic integrated RSS reader that allows each user to follow in their own feed everything that has an RSS Feed. And if the source does not have a real Feed, there are still the so-called Bridges: online services such as rss.trom.tf (made available by the generous @tio ) which allow the flow of platforms to be converted into a feed like twitter, telegram etc
@notizie @oliver @tio I’ve integrated my RSS feeds into my friendica timeline and couldn’t be happier.
I subscribed some Pixelfed & YouTube-feeds in separate groups to check out if/how this is working. On Friendica-Web, I’ll get a feed the way I like it - except that I wasn’t able to find a way to show the entire content instead of the ‘Show more’-area in every picture.
On Fedilab, the YouTube-group appears text-only, the Pixelfed-group doesn’t work at all (feels like a timeout?)
On tooot, the YouTube-feed is pretty fine - correct picture preview with a link to the video, but timeout in case of Pixelfed, too. Hm.
IDK if this is what you want, but that’s how Mastodon rss feed looks like in Feeder on compact mode:
I’ve been using it for some time now, it’s not as convenient as Fritter, but quite do the job
Nah, I find this uncomfortable, because especially regarding Pixelfed the essential of the post - the media - are not shown in the timeline.
