imm is written and configured in Haskell.

Online feed reader
For the sake of I-want-the-mutt-of-feed-readers zealots, it is possible to turn any mail reader into a feed reader, by having imm send an e-mail with unread elements to an arbitrary address. You can then browse your feeds through your favourite mail reader, and leverage any mail-related tool on your feeds. Bonus points if your mail reader is online as you can now access your feeds from anywhere in the internet.
imm is able to store a local copy of unread elements, to read them later while offline for example. External links won’t work offline though.
