A TiddlyWeb plugin that allows you to import rss feeds to bags through a twanager command To use just add "tiddlywebplugins.imrss" to your twanager_plugins

Each item in an rss feed is mapped to a tiddler by the following rules

title: guid / id attribute (preferred) OR url with ":","/" and "." replaced with "_" character text: The text by default is saved as a link <html><p><b><a href='{{rss link}}'>{{rss title}}</a><br>{{rss description}} </p></html> geo.long and geo.lat: if geo data is present, the longitude and latitude will be matched to these feeds (works with <georss:point> and <georss:where>) modifier: the author of the rss item modified: the date field is used if present if not then the current date on time of command is taken

You can also create customisations by providing a handler. For example:

1) add to tiddlywebconfig "imrss":{"module": "my_module"} 2) create a module my_module.py, inside which paste def generic_handler(url,tiddler,feed_entry,feed=False,host=""): tiddler.text = "foo" return tiddler 3) run twanager imrss http://rssurl foo

The result will be tiddlers in foo from the rss feed, all with "foo" as the text. Obviously this example is rubbish but hopefully it gives you a starting point to explore further customisations.

This package is licensed under the same terms as TiddlyWeb itself.
