Mike Zamansky has another video in his Using Emacs series up. It is the first of two or three posts on Elfeed. For those who don’t know, Elfeed is an Emacs-based RSS reader written by Christopher Wellons. If you’re striving to live in Emacs and have an RSS feed, this may be just what you need.
Like Zamansky, I’m a Feedly user and really like it. If you’re still looking for a Google Reader replacement, I can’t recommend it enough. Still, it would be nice to move this functionality under Emacs. I’ve often been tempted to try out Elfeed but Feedly was working for me and, as they say, the perfect is the enemy of the good. Of course, I thought that about
ido until Zamansky convinced me to try
counsel and now I wouldn’t go back.
My only sticking point is that, as far as I can tell, I wouldn’t be able to read my feed on my iOS devices. I don’t do that very often but it’s a consideration.
If you find yourself in my position, be sure to check out Zamansky’s video. I’m going to watch the rest of the series before I make up my mind on whether or not to change but it has given me another attractive option to consider.
The video is 13 minutes, 43 seconds long so it should be easy to find some time to watch it.
