This is neat!! Well done, I'll definitely try it :D

Though I think the enthusiasm made you forget to link the project :D

I have a question: how do you fetch the data since the API is not public yet? RSS? Scraping?

Scraping.

Great side benefit to this -- you can look like you're to non-programmers working when you're really just reading dev.to :)

No, in fact I would have done it in Go.
PHP for a CLI, it's not serious (except for learning purpose)!

This is awesome ❀️

Maybe add the repo url and/or installation instructions πŸ˜‰
Does it work on all platforms? macOS, Linux, Windows

Not sure if it already does this, but maybe add a login option (API key) so it can get your personalised feed (tags/people you follow, + tag weight is different for everyone).

API for devto is not yet available. So for that we may have to wait.

Not yet but surely can make it. Though you guys won't be able to see images.
