I was really used to open Google Reader for RSS-Feeds from my gmail account, suddenly the link is gone. If you google for 'google reader', it shows the link and the Reader itself says in a popup "not available after 30/07/2013" if I read correctly.

What now?

I recently installed Google Reader on my mobile and would miss it. The funny thing is, I never liked Googler Reader on my older phone because it had an Android News app (not sure where it was from).

In my new mobile I don't have a proper news App, so I'm using Google Reader.

I've been is shock since the announcement. I use RSS more that any other "web service" save HTTP{S}. Still not sure who I'll goto, largely it'll depend on who Newsrob and Newsbeauter support. I may have to roll my own central repository and sync to it

Yeah, I've been burned by this cloud-shit, and have decided I have to run my own service (I have my own server with fixed IP running 24/7). There is Tiny Tiny RSS, but I don't want to run mysql/postgresql+php just for RSS sync. I'll probably end up running a cron script with rsstool to fetch the xmls periodically. Something like this:
Code:
rsstool --rss localhost/slashdot.xml rss.slashdot.org/slashdot/slashdot > /var/www/localhost/htdocs/slashdot_temp.xml
mv /var/www/localhost/htdocs/slashdot_temp.xml /var/www/localhost/htdocs/slashdot.xml

then subscribe to my-server/slashdot.xml using a RSS client (quiterss isn't bad) and put its config directory in dropbox/whatever. A bit cumbersome, and I'll lose android-linux sync, but I won't subscribe to another RSS sync website :/

Mozilla AddOns for the rescue :D

Brief looks very good. It uses the URLs in a special bookmarks folder, so if you synchonize your bookmarks, you also have the same feeds everywhere.

if people cared, google would not can the service. All the whining is from such a small minority it makes no business sense for google to even acknowledge those annoying noises.

If Google could make advertising money out of it they would continue. I am not sure if people caring would be enough, otherwise (for instance) Microsoft would not have stopped the MSN Live chat client and replaced it with Skype.

Nobody is whining, just stated the fact and looking for alternatives. I am quite happy with the Mozilla Addon now. :)

Do the tags get imported?

Not the ones I added at work. It created a second bookmarks folder with the same name, I just copied the bookmarks in 'Subscribed Feeds' into the new 'Subscribed Feeds' folder and it started loading the feeds for them.
I need to check on Monday, if my computer at work creates yet another new folder :)

Does it require me to install Mozilla?

I just emerged net-news/liferea and it seems very good. It's quite fast since it's a desktop (GTK) app.

Imported all my feeds from Google Reader without problems. Currently using about 70MB of RAM. Looks like a keeper.

Today I decided to install selfoss-2.4 on my lighttpd webserver. It rocks. Small, few dependencies (just php+sqlite, no mysql/postgres needed), fast and beautiful. IMO way better looking than ttrss and much simpler to set up.

No ebuild for it, but following this and adding this to the lighttpd configuration was enough. I just removed my google reader bookmark :D
