About Leed (Light Feed)

Generality :


Leed (contraction of Light Feed) is a minimalistic RSS feed aggregator which allows quick and non-intrusive reading of feeds.

All the tasks are done silently with a scheduled task (Cron), thus the user is not faced with the slow down due to the retrieveing and processing of the feeds.

Leed is compatible with all monitors' resolution, desktop computers, tablets and smartphones and accessible from all the browsers.

The script is also compatible with OPML import/export, which makes easier the migration from aggregators respecting the OPML standard.
