Front-end RSS Feeds (2020 Edition)

RSS Feeds Back in 2011, Paul Irish posted his personal list of frontend RSS feeds for front-end web developers. It was a great list, but after some time it needed some refreshing.

In 2014 I published my own list of categorized feeds for front-end developers. I cleaned up Paul’s feed list quite a bit and added some new feeds, while splitting the feed up into manageable categories.

Over the past few months I’ve been working on improving on that previous list, drawing on numerous resources, including Šime Vidas’ huge list of feeds.

I’ve now divided the feeds into the following new categories:

  1. The Giants
  2. Multi-author Blogs
  3. Top Front-end Bloggers
  4. More Front-end Bloggers
  5. Hackernoon Tags
  6. Browsers, Engines, etc.
  7. Libraries, Frameworks, etc.
  8. Company & Startup Blogs
  9. Developer & Designer News
  10. Q&A Sites & Forums
  11. YouTube Channels

I’ve excluded some feeds from this list for one or more of the following reasons:

  • The blog/site hasn’t been updated in a long time
  • Posts are very infrequent (e.g. 2 per year or fewer)
  • Too many personal posts and other things that have nothing to do with web development, with no way to filter
  • Too many list posts, sponsored content, etc.
  • Paywalls (e.g. I’ve excluded most Medium feeds)

You can find the full list on GitHub, which includes all the feeds in OPML format. The OPML file can be imported into your feed reader of choice.

I use the paid version of NewsBlur for my feeds, but there are free apps you can use. I find most free readers are limited, so I’ve gone with a paid product.

This is always going to be a work in progress. If you’d like to offer a suggestion for a feed to add to the list, feel free to open an issue on the GitHub repo. Please ensure the feed you recommend is updated fairly regularly. Any recommended feeds should be relevant to front-end developers.

Markdown in use! Use `backticks` for inline code snippets and triple backticks at start and end for code blocks. You can also indent a code block four spaces. And no need to escape HTML, just type it correctly but make sure it's inside code delimeters (backticks or triple backticks).
