Trigger

Description:Emit new items from an RSS feed
Version:1.2.3
Key:rss-new-item-in-feed

RSS Overview

With the RSS API you have the power to create powerful tools and applications.
RSS is a great way to reliably subscribe to, track and build around your
favorite content sources. Here are some examples of things you can create
using the RSS API:

  • A personal news website to syndicate articles from multiple sources.
  • A custom feed reader to deliver timely notifications of updates and news.
  • A live editorial dashboard to track news, trends and public sentiment.
  • An automated “report bot” to aggregate and report on news topics.
  • A competitor tracking tool to stay on top of industry news.
  • A custom RSS-based search engine or RSS-supported deep learning engine.
  • A live events feed to notify users and followers of new developments.
