Hello, new non-dev here, looking for some guidence


I’ve been looking around and I am simply stunned at how many projects are going and the level of quality. I had no idea this was here until a couple of weeks ago.

I run a small hobby website that aggragates a specific news area. The site is free and makes no money and it will stay that way. Everything I use is free software and works well, but I’m running into some limitations and it is also eating up a lot of time.

I’m trying to find something that will let me pull in a lot of different news sources… currently just using RSS. I want to be able to use News API’s and plain URL’s as well. But, I also want to be able to filter the results by keyword and hopefully categorize the results as well.

I’m using wordpress and the MyCurate plugin (Awesome, amazing plugin)

Does anyone know of other Free plugins (rules out many RSS importers) or even a totally different system that might work…

I have seen a couple projects like News-Please and NewsGate but I’ve only ever used a windows platform. Additionally, I admit, I don’t really understand what is ok for use and what is not ok. I am still reading and trying to understand exactly how GitHub and everything else all works together.

If I am totally out of line, let me know, I don’t mean to be rude or selfish. If this is ok to ask, I’d appreciate any pointers.



I thought this was posted into the general Welcome forum. Maybe an Op could move it or should I post there as well.

so sorry
