It looks like Elfeed is way more handy than it was, thanks to elfeed-org to handle OPML files.

As far as I know, outside of Elfeed there does not exist an extensible, text-file configured, power-user web feed client that can handle a reasonable number of feeds. The existing clients I’ve tried are missing some important capability that limits its usefulness to me.

Note that Spacemacs uses the key combination g r to update the live feed, not G as mentioned in Chris’ tutorial. #emacs
