Adding cursor-based pagination to my RSS reader, to get rid of some (very) minor annoyances. (Note that Microsub’s paging— a bit different, still. Yay.)


My feed reader’s “timeline” moves really slow, so I’m not at all interested in anything “infinite scrolling” or optimized for “real-time” updates. It’s to do with marking new items as read, which using traditional pagination will “bump up” remaining items from, e.g., page 2 to page 1, meaning the (previously generated) link to page 2 may now lead to an empty page and those items might stay overlooked for a little while.
