A small yet powerful RSS Feed Reader working with Node.js and Angular
Latest commit 8d7c3ce Jan 7, 2014 @geekuillaume Merge pull request #9 from sdavara/master
Fixed link address in feeds, now it will open up feed in new tab with it...



Now that Google Reader is over, why not use an open source Feed Reader ! Freader provides you with a simple page with all your feeds and the last item in them. You cannot read articles inside the application for now but it's on the TODO list !

You can see it in action in a little Heroku app here! Account creation takes about 10 seconds. Try it!


  • All your feeds in a clear (and flat) UI
  • All written with Node.js and Angular.js
  • User management (creation, removing)
  • Feed caching (one hour by default)



  • Clone this repo
  • Install dependencies with 'npm install'
  • Start your MongoDB server with mongod (modify the address if you need to in the config file)
  • Start the server with npm start
  • You can now create a user and start adding feeds by connecting to localhost:3000 (you can change the port inside the config file)



  • Add organization on feeds with tabs / categories
  • Get back the favicon from the feed
  • Clean and remove CSS in Bootstrap / Flat UI to keep only what's used
  • Show the article directly in the application
  • Improve the design and UX in general
  • Implement 'Forgot Password?' feature
  • Keep track of the current state of articles : to reed / reeded
  • Add a view with every articles of every feeds
