yarr (yet another rss reader) is a web-based feed aggregator which can be used both as a desktop application and a personal self-hosted server.
It is written in Go with the frontend in Vue.js. The storage is backed by SQLite.
The latest prebuilt binaries for Linux/MacOS/Windows are available here.
yarr-*-macos64.zip, unzip it, place
To open the app follow the instructions provided here or run the command below:
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/yarr.app
yarr-*-windows32.zip, unzip it, open
The Linux version doesn't come with the desktop environment integration. For easy access on DE it is recommended to create a desktop menu entry by by following the steps below:
unzip -x yarr*.zip sudo mv yarr /usr/local/bin/yarr sudo nano /usr/local/share/applications/yarr.desktop
and pasting the content:
[Desktop Entry] Name=yarr Exec=/usr/local/bin/yarr -open Icon=rss Type=Application Categories=Internet;
For self-hosting, see
yarr -h for auth, tls & server configuration flags.
Go >= 1.16 and
gcc. Get the source code:
git clone https://github.com/nkanaev/yarr.git
Then run one of the corresponding commands:
# create an executable for the host os make build_macos # -> _output/macos/yarr.app make build_linux # -> _output/linux/yarr make build_windows # -> _output/windows/yarr.exe # ... or start a dev server locally make serve # starts a server at http://localhost:7070 # ... or build a docker image docker build -t yarr .
Feather for icons.
