How to check Feedly (and other readers) for broken feeds

In: development|software

10 Jul 2013

When I migrated from Google Reader to Feedly I noticed that a handful of my feeds stopped working. Since I have about 300 feeds, I didn’t want to click through each one to see which ones aren’t working any more. I built a script to do it instead. In the process, I found a lot of old feeds whose sites have since been closed down. It was nice to do some house cleaning. I built the script specifically for Feedly, but it will probably work for any other feed reader that allows exports to OPML.

To use the tool, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Feedly account.
  2. Go to http://cloud.feedly.com/#opml and copy the code from the page.
  3. Go to http://tools.otherchin.com/opml, paste to the text box, and submit.
  4. Profit!
