RSS action daemon
I hang out at an IRC channel where this guy agonyzer started talking about wanting a rss feed reader that could do configurable actions on feed items. But then he claimed to suck at programming…
So i made RSS Daemon. It uses a standard .cfg file to specify RSS feeds or pipes that provide rss feeds, what element in the feed item to look for, what to look for in that item, and what to do if you find what you look for.
The RSS daemon will reload it’s configuration if you change the config file.
The config file is as easy as rssdaemon_example.cfg – just read it and rename it to rssdaemon.cfg . There are comments in the file.
Oh, yes – rssdaemon.py –dump-only will give you the first element of every configured feed with the name of each element. VERY useful.
If there are any problems, patches, feature requests or questions – please email me at ola-rssdaemon [at] ormset.no
