Coded on top of the 4.x branch of Ruby on Rails, Feedbin is a powerful Ruby application that can be used to parse, update, and allow users to view data syndicated via RSS feeds.
Feedbin can be a good alternative to Feedly if you plan to move your subscriptions from one service to another, but it can also be installed locally in case you value your privacy more.
This small feature allows developers to customize the system and deploy it only for themselves on a private server, or build another RSS reading service using Feedbin's codebase and manage it yourself.
All the great feed management features that were originally found in Google Reader are also found in Feedbin, and its user-friendly interface will allow anyone to use it without requiring complex tutorials or instructions.
In case you don't want to host Feedbin yourself (anymore), you can go anytime on feedbin.com and subscribe to an account.
