My Custom CSS for Miniflux

Various bits and bobs, I gradually accumulated over the past couple of years, to make my self hosted Miniflux look just the way I want it. Width and Size Changed the width to 850 pixels wide, because even on my vertical monitor, there was quite a bit of wasted horizontal space. Changed the body to use a slightly smaller size. body { max-width: 850px; !important; font-size: 90%; } Italic Blockquotes Changed blockquotes to be italic, so that they’re better set off against normal body text....

Stuffing variables into a config file for Miniflux

Something I learnt recently as I moved hosts for my Miniflux instance.

P.S. The entire list of variables is here.
