A backend to aggregate many rss or atom news feeds into one, your own feed.

You now subscribe to feeds not in your graphical feed reader client but in the feedproxy database. Feedproxy then fetches the feeds periodically and stores the news into it's database in the background. You just have to subscribe to a single one feed provided by feedproxy to get the previously stored news in your regular feed reader. It's transparent.

Helps the problem of reading the same news again and again on many computers you use - as those clients work individually, every news is new to them. Feedproxy remembers you've already read one and wont send it to you again.

Also useful when you go on vacation, as the proxy automatically fetches the content into database without the need to run a graphical client.

It's like a Google Reader alternative without the Evil.

Supports Amazon Kindle, can send the referred article contents with images automatically as a book via Kindle-It.
