Description Daniel Weisser 2015-02-11 09:59:04 UTC
It would be nice to synchronise the list of feeds and the read/unread news status with Feedly.

An API is available. See https://developer.feedly.com/
Comment 1 Edouard Duliège 2015-04-30 07:59:51 UTC
I agree, it would also be nice to have this feature with The Old Reader. and API is also available : https://github.com/theoldreader/api

Just adding my voice, Feedly is a hugely popular tool - especially since Google Reader closed down.  It would be really great to integrate rather than have to bring in all the feeds I already have there.

Yes. I would really like feedly support too!

Is there any update on this feature?

Alas as with all of this features on the wishlist, this won't be implemented until someone interested and with enough skills and knowledge can step up and take a look at it. But it's been 6+ years since it was reported, so...

And this will be a complicated one, because it will mean not only dealing with the Feedly API and KDEPIM/Akonadi thingies, but setting the path so Akregator can have synchronization with other third-party services, and I guess it would mean a huge deal in how Akregator code is structured right now.

In top of all of that, there's the fact that RSS popularity has decayed. One can hope that the incoming feature on Chrome about 'reviving' RSS can give it a second chance, but also it seems KDEPIM devs are focused on KMail, the new Kalendar thing and that stuff - maybe someone at some GSoC could take this one, or we can keep it upvoting this bug report and making noise about it so there's more chance of it to be discovered by someone who can do this.

I'd love to take this up (as a student, GSoC or not), if the current architecture of Akregator makes it possible. I'm quite comfortable working in C/C++, I love RSS and I love KDE; it's a shame I can't use an RSS reader with a K in it (my rss server is miniflux).
I will fiddle around the code when I get the free time, although it'd definitely help more if a developer could point me in the right direction regarding this.

And I do believe that adding support for Google Reader API / Fever API would be a better first step than specific services like feedly, because many clients/servers implement Google Reader API.
