Hi,

Here is a link to an OPML export of the sources defined in your feedly:
http://www.google.com/reader/subscrip...

Please note that these sources are automatically backed up both in Feedly and Google Reader. The information local to your machine is just a cache so even if your windows goes bad, you can simply login to feedly from another machine and access your feedly without any problem.

Have a good week and please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you,
Edwin

And now that Google Reader is going away, will you have another option for data portability?

In addition to exporting feeds, another two important question:

How to export tagged items from Feedly?

I think a fundamental improvement would be to also let tagged items be shared as new RSS feeds, by the way

I'd like to see an export of feed links in the format of bookmarks as an HTML file.

Yes, this is a dealbreaker for me. I am a social media trainer trying to advise several people about which RSS reader to adopt. As much as I love Feedly, I can't really advise people to adopt it without being sure that they will be able to get their feeds out if they ever decide to leave.

The silence is deafening. Are Feedly peeps REALLY listening and here to help?

Too many days, zero replies. How much more time shall we give Feedly to respond w/ a solution -- or at least an acknowledgement? What reader will you use if not Feedly? Recommendations welcomed.

After testing Feedly (quick, but apparently a dead-end street), NewsBlur (slow!), TheOldReader (even slower!), I finally found NetVibes to be a suitable replacement for Google Reader.

They have an FAQ to adapt the dashboard view if you're coming from Google. You can easily import your exported feeds from Reader, and they also allow you to download your feed subscriptions if you ever decide to leave their service.

I suggest that everybody leaves Feedly as is until they allow exporting, we can't support bad behavior.

I've made a new topic for this question post-reader, in case new comments on this "Answered" question aren't popping up on their radar:

Malcom,

Feedly didn't mark that question as a duplicate; it was poor wording on my part.

Possibly even more usefully, I found a post about this on Feedly's Uservoice.com site, with 875 votes at the moment:

I just read this on a review of the various rss readers:

"Feedly says that if you sign into its service (available for web browsers and mobile devices) with your Google Reader account before July 1, your feeds will automatically transfer to Feedly’s own upcoming RSS service. The change will all occur on the back end, so your front end experience should be seamless."

I guess that means they're working on a dedicated service of their own - "upcoming RSS service".

In the meantime, do not delete your google reader feeds as that action will delete them from feedly.

Feedly's "own upcoming RSS service" should provide an option to export user data in an interoperable format (such as OPML), just like Google Reader has (thanks to which option we are now able to explore Feedly, or any other RSS reader).

"should provide" as in "it is good practice to", not as in "it will probably".

Again, and thanks to Michael above, NetVibes! (Yes, it works, and it's easy to use.)

The question is most important. At the moment if you want to leave Feedly you can still rely on Google Reader. But once GR is gone for good? We'll be in Feedly hands.
And Feedly added some 3 million users after Google announced the closure of the Reader service
So if one day the people back at Feedly become a little greedy and want to raise some nice money, they could remove an essential feature and ask you to pay for it. So or pay or you lose your subscriptions. Imagine the unthinkable: they remove the option to search your own feeds - the shortcut gg.
What? they've already removed it?
Bye bye Feedly, hallo Netvibes.

Because links to RSS are included in html itself, I was able to export my data by importing jquery into console, use selector on all div's with link and print it to console. And I get all the links. It's not OMPL though..

go to 'Organize' (http://cloud.feedly.com/#contents%2Fedit), then 'Import OPML' or 'Export OPML'.
