Integrate the RSS API with the HTTP / Webhook API

Setup the RSS API trigger to run a workflow which integrates with the HTTP / Webhook API. Pipedream's integration platform allows you to integrate RSS and HTTP / Webhook remarkably fast. Free for developers.

Connect RSS

module.exports = defineComponent({
  props: {
    rss: {
      type: "app",
      app: "rss",
    }
  },
  async run({steps, $}) {
    // Retrieve items from a sample feed
    const Parser = require('rss-parser');
    const parser = new Parser();
    
    const stories = []
    
    // Replace with your feed URL
    const url = "https://pipedream.com/community/latest.rss"
    
    const feed = await parser.parseURL(url);
    const { title, items } = feed
    this.title = title
    
    if (!items.length) {
      $end("No new stories")
    }
    
    this.items = items
  },
})

Connect HTTP / Webhook

export default defineComponent({
  props: {
    http: {
      type: "http_request",
      default: {
        method: "GET",
        url: "http://api.open-notify.org/iss-now.json",
      }
    }
  },
  async run({steps, $}) {
    return await this.http.execute()
  },
})

I'm going to build a workflow that will search Twitter every hour for a keyword. It will take the results, format them nicely, and then email it.

Normally I don't like to blog about stuff that isn't generally available to all, but as it will be available sometime soon, I decided to go ahead anyway. And I built something really cool I want to share so that's another reason to talk about this now!
