Introducing Miniflux

I've been a fan of Miniflux since I publicaly ditched TinyTinyRSS for it, 6 years ago. (read all about it!)

Miniflux is part of a class of apps I'm hoping to add more of - standalone apps which leverage an external database backend (like MySQL or postgreSQL). In this class we already have Seafile and Mattermost, and I hope to add NextCloud in the near future. (and hopefully eventually Radarr and Sonarr!)

Using a "real" database (as opposed to sqlite) makes backup / migration a little tricker, but I've implemented automatic daily backups for the database component (they'll go to /storage/elfstorage/backups/<app>/), alongside whatever backup / export option the app natively provides.

See more on the app page, or perform a 24h trial / subscription at the store!

Dashboards no longer broken

The SSL certs for the old app-naming convention (https://<user>.<app> were about to expire, and it's been about 2 months since we migrated to the new convention (https://<user>-<app>, so I removed the deprecated ingressroutes.

Unfortunately, at the same time, I removed the ingressroutes pointing to users' dashboards, so https://<user> was returning 404s for half the day! ๐Ÿคฆ. This was fixed with an out-of-schedule hotfix during the day.


As always, thanks for building with us - feel free to share suggestions, ideas, and whatever you ate for breakfast today! ๐Ÿณ

  1. I changed this metric to count subscribers as reported by Wordpress, rather than provisioned users (72 currently), because (a) I have some un-provisioning scripts to fix, and (b) I think subscribers is a more accurate measure of current growth. 

  2. Just in time for the Aug 2023 elf-disclosure report this weekend!
