Feedly is Awesome! For those who don't know, Feedly is a cross-platform and cross-browser RSS Reader app. I have used Feedly off and on for years now but due to the closure of Google Reader, Feedly has become a vastly more dominant force in the RSS realm. Feedly has a LOT of great features and tools but there was one thing I wanted to be a little bit easier, the process for adding new feeds (subscriptions) to the application.
I created this Bookmarklet to solve this problem. This bookmarklet works on all browsers and operating systems (except mobile) that Feedly supports and is ridiculously easy to use.
Steps to use the Feedlet:
- Add Feedlet, the Feedly bookmarklet, to you browser.
- Navigate to the RSS feed that you want to add.
- Click on the Feedlet bookmark.
- Click the "+add" button at the top of the page.
Video Demo of the Feedlet
Quick Note: I originally made this bookmarklet in July 2010 so the Feedly interface in the video is not the same as the current interface but the basics of it are the same. I will record a new video if requested but to get this blog post up as soon as possible I elected to use the old one.
