Back in 2008, Paul Irish posted a modest list of RSS feeds for front-end developers to follow. Since that original post, he’s updated the list multiple times, and his list is now on GitHub growing to over 200 feeds.
It looks like the list hasn’t been updated in 6 months or more. Not a really big deal, but I noticed when I imported the OPML into my feed reader, there were a number of broken feeds, empty feeds, and feeds not updated in quite some time.
For a while now I’ve wanted to put together my own list of front-end feeds, so here it is.
Some of the things I’ve focused on for this list are:
- Not too many overly technical feeds that most of us don’t benefit much from (standards bodies, browser makers, etc.)
- I’ve included CSS/HTML/JS category feeds for many design blogs that don’t post a lot of code. These won’t always be the most high quality feeds, but I think they have some value.
- I’ve ensured that, as of this writing, almost all the feeds included are updated fairly regularly, or else they have been updated in the past 6 months.
If you have any suggestions for stuff to add, even if it’s your own blog/website, feel free to submit a pull request or open an issue on GitHub and I’ll see what I can do. I’m only accepting feeds that are based on front-end development.
So to sum up, in no way am I trying to make a “better” list than Paul’s. His is still great, and I’m sure many will continue to use it. I just thought the community needed a more intermediate-ish list of resources for our daily/weekly reading.
For reference, you can find Paul’s feed list here.
