Anyway, the conclusion remains: Microsub is nice and all, but a decent RSS reader is better, as long as you can somehow easily share from it to your own site. (Several solutions exist.)
@janboddez Totally agree. I love my Inoreader because of some UX and UI decisions in it. Great keyboard shortcuts, visual representation of feeds and more. Most microsub readers lack this important part of reader-apps. It's too much of a technical solution instead of a human solution. I have inoreader connected to Zapier to share to my own site through Micropub.
@frank I've been playing around with the Aperture Microsub server for a few days now, and now Monocle. Tried self-hosting and am almost there. Turns out you need: Monocle, which seems to require an XRay (the API variant) instance, an Aperture instance with ImageMagick support, Redis, a MySQL database, a running Camo-compatible image proxy, and Watchtower, which requires a second MySQL database, a custom system service and Beanstalkd, and ... No, that would be all.
@frank Also installed the (equally self-hosted) Miniflux RSS aggregator and reader: one docker-compose.yml file and that's about it.
@janboddez Ha, you see! This whole Indieweb DIY Own Your Data is só ready for primetime big audiences! ;-)
@frank It may be, if you resort to services hosted elsewhere, like Bridgy, webmention.io, and all at p3k.io. 😃
