OPML Export

This one's pretty simple. Our data is our data, and I don't want it trapped in Feedly. Up until now this wasn't a problem, since we could sync with google reader and export from there, but now that Google Reader is shutting down we need a formal, user friendly options to export our feed data in multiple formats.

        "We just added OPML export to feedly" in July - and then we removed the link to it from Feedly 17.3, October 2013.

        Feedly 17.3 has removed the OPML export link from the Organize page (now renamed Personalize - a very poor name for this page), although it is still available (for now...?) via the #opml link.

        Incidentally it seems to me poor design for there to be the separate pages Personalize and Index; they are mostly just the view and edit versions of the same data.

        with all of these complaints, why isn't this fixed yet?!

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        1) Cut and paste the content of the OPML file generated by Feedly into Notepad
        2) Name the file: feedly.opml
        3) Save as type: All files
        4) Encoding: UTF-8

        Worked on Digg Reader.

        i tried this, exactly as written below
        1) Cut and paste the content of the OPML file generated by Feedly into Notepad
        2) Name the file: feedly.opml
        3) Save as type: All files
        4) Encoding: UTF-8

        it's not working when i tried to import it to hootsuite rss apps

        Yes, this isn't working when you want to import the OPML back into Feedly.

        1) Cut and paste the content of the OPML file generated by Feedly into Notepad
        2) Name the file: feedly.opml
        3) Save as type: All files
        4) Encoding: UTF-8

        After saving by this method, the resulting feedly.opml file was successfully imported into InoReader.

        This is excellent, thanks for providing it.

        I like to try out different services, and your openness really biased me back towards Feedly :)

      • Margs LMargs L commented  · 

        Yes, I also do not know how to convert this to an xml file that is required for other readers to read.

      • boratborat commented  · 

        what's everyone's problem? Successfully exported/imported into InoReader. #wtf

      • mattmaisonmattmaison commented  · 

        Thank you for adding this! It says a lot about feedly wanting to accommodate users instead of trapping them.

      • Michael WoffendenMichael Woffenden commented  · 

        Does anyone have a cookbook on precise steps to take to "fix" Feedly's exported OPML?

      • Michael WoffendenMichael Woffenden commented  · 

        Tried to import from the Feedly OPML to FeedDemon 4.5. Got the error "This file is either not a valid OPML file, or it's an OPML file that doesn't contain a list of feeds." Feedly team, any plans on fixing this file?

      • Guy St-OngeGuy St-Onge commented  · 

        Accented characters seems to cause problem as I cannot export/reimport a copy-pasted file from one Feedly account to another.

        Hi, thanks for the effort, but I'm afraid that it's not working right, just copying and pasting on notepad and then saving the file as "feedly.opml".

        I can't make anything with that!!!

        Sorry. :·(

      • Chris WaltersChris Walters commented  · 

        If you're like me and really really want an OPML file that works, but (also like me) you don't have a clue about how to fix this one, here's how I did it. It's too long to paste here so I put it on Pastebin at pastebin.com/m8iui9r4

      • Carsten OberscheidCarsten Oberscheid commented  · 

        The OPML export is buggy. In XML, characters & and < need to be escaped as &amp; and &lt; when they occurr in element or attribute content. There are some more (>, ", ') to escape in certain contexts as well.
        Feedly doesn't do this, so the OPML export breaks for feeds with & etc in their names. The resulting XML isn't wellformed and can't be imported anywhere.

        It doesn't work. When I click on it, it takes me to a page and shows html code.
