Trigger

Description:Emit new items from an RSS feed
Version:1.2.6
Key:rss-new-item-in-feed

RSS Overview

The RSS app allows users to automatically fetch and parse updates from web feeds. This functionality is pivotal for staying abreast of content changes or updates from websites, blogs, and news outlets that offer RSS feeds. With Pipedream, you can harness the RSS API to trigger workflows that enable a broad range of automations, like content aggregation, monitoring for specific keywords, notifications, and data synchronization across platforms.

Trigger Code

Version:0.5.3
Key:browserless-take-screenshot

Browserless Overview

The Browserless API on Pipedream allows you to automate browser actions without the overhead of managing your own browser infrastructure. This service provides a way to run Chrome browser sessions programmatically, making it ideal for web scraping, automated testing, and screenshot capture. Leveraging this on Pipedream, you can create serverless workflows that interact with web pages, extract data, and perform actions as a human would, all in a scalable and efficient manner.
