Default [Q] HTC Sense 6?

I have a Nexus 5 32 GB and I was wondering if it is possible to put HTC Sense 6 on the Nexus 5. I really like Blinkfeed and I cannot find any applications that mimic the functionality of blinkfeed. Does anybody know of a ROM I can flash or any applications that mimic the functionality of blinkfeed.

If you don't mind me asking, why not? I thought Android was open source and could do anything with it!

HTC Sense is NOT open source. It's proprietary.

android is open source, sense is not. sense is owned and controlled by htc, and needs htc's framework to run it. since sense isnt open source, you have no access to its code. porting it is very time consuming, and is always partially and imperfect(if you can get it to run at all). its so time consuming and difficult, that for 99.9999% of people its not worth wasting their time trying to port it.

I've not seen any yet to be honest. Just keep an eye on the "android apps and games" forum on xda as most cool new apps end up there.
