Feeds has a few commands that are described on this page.
List all available spiders:
$ feeds list
Feeds allows to crawl one or more spiders without a configuration file, e.g.:
$ feeds crawl indiehackers.com
A configuration file is supported too. Simply copy the Example configuration and adjust it. Enable the spiders you are interested in and adjust the
output_pathwhere Feeds stores the scraped Atom feeds:
$ cp feeds.cfg.dist feeds.cfg $ $EDITOR feeds.cfg $ feeds --config feeds.cfg crawl
Perform a cache cleanup:
$ feeds --config feeds.cfg cleanup
Point your feed reader to the generated Atom feeds and start reading. Feeds works best when run periodically in a cron job or similar job scheduler.
