moonmoon Build Status

Moonmoon is a web based aggregator similar to planetplanet. It can be used to blend articles from different blogs with same interests into a single page.

Moonmoon is simple: it only aggregates feeds and spits them out in one single page. It does not archive articles, it does not do comments nor votes.


You will need a web hosting with at least PHP 5.6 (PHP 7 is also supported).

If you are installing moonmoon on a Linux private server (VPS, dedicated host), please note that you will need to install the package php-xml.


Installation steps (shared hosting or virtual / dedicated server) can be found in the wiki.

Docker images are also available in moonmoon/docker-images. Theses images are probably not production-ready but should work for manual testing.

Moonmoon is free software and is released under the BSD license. Third-party code differently licensed is included in this project, in which case mention is always made of the applicable license.
