Welcome to Feeds¶
Feeds provides DIY Atom feeds in times of social media and paywall.
Once upon a time every website offered an RSS feed to keep readers updated about new articles/blog posts via the users’ feed readers. These times are long gone. The once iconic orange RSS icon has been replaced by “social share” buttons.
Feeds aims to bring back the good old reading times. It creates Atom feeds for websites that don’t offer them (anymore). It allows you to read new articles of your favorite websites in your feed reader (e.g. TinyTinyRSS) even if this is not officially supported by the website.
Furthermore it can also enhance existing feeds by inlining the actual content into the feed entry so it can be read without leaving the feed reader.
Feeds is based on Scrapy, a framework for extracting data from websites and it has support for a few websites already, see Supported Websites. It’s easy to add support for new websites. Just take a look at the existing spiders and feel free to open a pull request!
