@jakemor I've manually added the sources. Everything else is automated

@tonixx got that, I meant how are you pulling new articles from each of your sources? RSS feeds?

Hi everyone! I built Techstra because I found myself checking the same websites everyday for both news and inspiration. What distinguished Techstra from other news aggregators is that it combines all posts into one simple feed. iOS client coming soon :D. Would love to hear feedback and requests for new features.

@jakemor Nice... how will this compete against other similar sites/news aggregators? Is there a way to customise the feed (e.g. nothing on GitHub would be relevant for me)

@bentossell not yet, but coming soon! I'll try to work on that today.
