for example if I need to find the rss feed of lwn.net I can search `feed:lwn.net` to get the result https://lwn.net/headlines/rss, you can also use duckduckgo but it includes irrelevant results for some reason, it should also work in searx.
> I usually use a feed reader to gather news, but some news sites use newsletters instead of distributing feeds. As a user, is there any advantage to receive news using newsletters over feeds?
I know the Email isn't everyone's favourite RSS reader but it works really well for me. I wasn't happy with any of the existing services so I started my own.
https://feedmail.org is a low-cost RSS-to-Email service with nice clean templates. I'm happy to answer any questions.
I am currently using Liferea, and have a lot of RSS feeds, but I don't care about the majority of the posts but would still like to receive them. So I am looking for an RSS reader that could potentially filter posts and apply rules to them according to content and metadata, similar to many email clients.
What clients support this? (preferably desktop, open source, and for linux. But self hosted is also an option)
This link argues no. I would argue yes, because of a technical solution and a phenomenon I've observed.
The technical problem:
> It’s not enough to interleave their posts into a “river” or “stream” paradigm, where only the most recent N items are shown in one big, combined, reverse-chronological list (much like a Twitter timeline), because many of them would get buried in the noise of higher-volume feeds and people’s tweets.
One of the really nice things about RSS is what it *doesn't* do. It *doesn't* order your content by obscure algorithms aiming to vacuum you further and further into an advertising-driven time suck, as Twitter now does.
That *doesn't mean*, however, that your only option is to present behavior chronologically.
The technical solution:
I have [my RSS reader](https://maya.land/userscripts/miniflux/round-robin-sort/) do a [round-robin ordering](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Round-robin_scheduling) for each page displayed, so the higher-volume feeds pool at the bottom. This effect is more noted with a larger page size. For me, this works well enough. I don't see why marking "read all" is a bad thing, and I do it decently regularly.
Navigating directly to [lifehacker.com](https://lifehacker.com) or whatever other high-volume site feels like gambling. All the colorful previews are engaging, and it all seems to grab me more than my staid feed reader's presentation. It's tempting to roll the dice and see if there's something new. It makes me less *[this](https://xkcd.com/477/)* to consume everything in my feed reader is what I guess I'm saying. That's valuable to me.

I don't know if this will be useful to anyone, but... I find that [Miniflux](https://miniflux.app/) is maybe a little *too* "minimalist" and "opinionated" for my taste? Anyway, I've got a few [Tampermonkey](https://tampermonkey.net) userscripts for it now and this is the first one I've cleaned up.
The other puts sort buttons on the feed page for absolute number of unread entries descending, and unread:read ratio descending. If anyone wants that one I'll clean it up and put it up too.
