As part of my goal of automation here, I wrote a small script to extract blog post links from RSS feeds. using Python. I did this to extract the title and link of blog posts from a particular date range in my RSS feed. In theory, it should be pretty easy but I’ve come to find that time was not my friend. What tripped me up was how some functions in python handle time objects.
I recently wrote a small a python script to parse blog feeds and then tweet them out via Twitter. It randomly takes the first 5 RSS entries of a feed and them tweets one out. You’ll need to get an API key from Twitter and the credentials, but it’s a neat way to keep your readers updated of the various feeds you read or write. Just replace the ‘XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX’ with the various keys you get from Twitter.
