FreshRSS is a free, self-hosted RSS aggregator. It is quite lightweight, fast (it can manage +100k articles without complaining) and powerful (e.g. shortcuts, filters, responsive design, multi-views, multi-themes, multi-users, statistics, provides a Google Reader API, etc.)
It is able to import feeds from OPML files and / or JSON files generated by Google Reader via Takeout.
To conclude, it is still a project in active development, so feel free to give a hand to help and have a look to the demo: http://demo.freshrss.org/
Ones I've Tried
Only for Mac and IOS, but really good! It's open source and free. It can sync with Newsblur, Feedbin, and others. Using the Mac app also allows me to select multiple stories.
Obsidian has an RSS plugin and has recently been updated. The update makes it much, much more usable! I can make a list for the RSS stories I wanted to save on that day.
I gave this one a go on a whim and honestly I really like it! Open source BUT IS NOT FREE. I've been using the trial and I enjoy it! I think it also has a training feature like Newsblur does?
- Nice interface
- Open source
- Can sync with NNW
- Has a web app (and a PWA I think)
- Gives an email for signing up for newsletter and converting them into RSS.
- The feed seems to go much further back than Newsblur
- Can't tag individual stories like with Newsblur
- Can't select all, but I may be able to do that through an app
- Open source
- Tags, and can tag individual stories.
- Notes I think?
- Web app
- It has kind of an ugly UI, but honestly it's ugly in a charming sort of way?
- Some feeds only show like one story when there are a lot more in the feed.
- Can't select all
- Problems with syncing with NetNewsWire

Self-hosted and open source, but Docker really, really doesn't like me for some reason and just was not working.
Besides, I don't know if I want a self-hosted feed reader, since it seems much more convenient to have one online.
One of the most popular but not open source. Has a web app.
