The main reason I developed this was that I wanted to view images inline. While LJ's feed aggregator does this, it has a "score" tracker, which limits the number of feeds you can track.
Also, I periodically run it at my server (via crontab) and set the output file as a publicly accessible one. This way, I access the latest feeds wherever I am.
The present version (0.6.1) is production-quality and features a pretty efficient hand-written parser. More details here.
If you decide to use it, do send me feature requests and bug reports at <hyperfeeder at amitng dot net>.
For the impatient:
- Debian users: Add one of the following to sources.list .
- Other distributions: Download and run install script
