Doesn’t installing such things as FreshRSS onto localhost defeat the whole purpose? I mean, why even have a complex piece of PHP software with its database dependencies and the need for a running webserver instance for something that can be done in a standalone RSS client with nice desktop integration and no multi-user overhead?

I understand running it on a server somewhere and being able to access it from anywhere you please without losing track of what’s read and what isn’t; I do it the same way myself. But for localhost — why even bother?
