 Key to Miniflux's streamlined approach is its use of Go (Golang), a programming language known for its efficiency. It functions exclusively with Postgresql and doesn't incorporate any object-relational mapping (ORM) or complicated frameworks. This makes it an optimal choice for those who prefer a minimalistic approach without sacrificing functionality.

 What sets Miniflux apart is its reliance on modern vanilla Javascript (ES6 and Fetch API). This ensures that it only uses the most current technologies, enhancing speed and performance. In addition, it compiles into a single binary file without dependencies which further supports its minimalist ethos.

Furthermore, the number of features in Miniflux is intentionally kept limited to maintain its simplicity. However, each feature is carefully selected for optimal performance and usability. All in all, Miniflux strikes the perfect balance between minimalism and performance.
