Share Your Love

In this post, you are going to be learning about another repository RSS Reader On GoLang(YARR).

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.

usage:

The latest prebuilt binaries for Linux/macOS/Windows are available here.

macos:

Download yarr-*-macos64.zip, unzip it, place yarr.app in /Applications folder.

The binaries are not signed, because the author doesn’t want to buy a certificate. Apple hates cheapskate developers, therefore the OS will refuse to run the application. To bypass these measures, you can run the command:

xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/yarr.app

windows:

Download yarr-*-windows32.zip, unzip it, place wherever you’d like to (C:\Program Files or Recycle Bin). Create a shortcut manually if you’d like to.

Microsoft doesn’t like cheapskate developers too, but might only gently warn you about that, which you can safely ignore.

linux:

The Linux version doesn’t come with desktop environment integration. For easy access on DE it is recommended to create a desktop menu entry 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.

build

Install Go >= 1.16 and gcc. Get the source code:

git clone --recurse-submodules 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 .
