FeedSync

Written by Alcides Fonseca at 1193700381

Since I moved from Flock to Google Reader I felt the need for a desktop solution to read my feeds. I’ve tried pyRfeed but since then there was no real evolution in the project. I know I could read GoogleReader’s reading list ATOM but if I use it in some desktop feed reader, it doesn’t sync with Google Reader so I can read it n my mobile.



Last week I was thinking of making my own feedreader web.based that supports syncing with another desktop feedreader. Just like IMAP works for email, this new protocol would work for Feeds. It would allow client readers to mark as read/unread, to flag (or star) items and even manage subscribing feeds. If it works, maybe I will have success making popular feed readers adopt it.
