The rss2irc package

[Tags:bsd3, program]

rss2irc is an IRC bot that polls an RSS or Atom feed and announces updates to an IRC channel, with options for customizing output and behavior. It aims to be an easy-to-use, reliable, well-behaved bot.

Usage: rss2irc FEEDURL [BOTNAME@IRCSERVER/#CHANNEL] [OPTS]

For example, to announce Hackage uploads (like hackagebot):

 $ rss2irc http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/recent.rss mybot@irc.freenode.org/#haskell

1.0 (2013215)

New: * more robust item detection and duplicate announcement protection, with simpler options * easier irc address syntax, drop -p/--port option * can poll urls with semicolon parameter separator (eg darcsweb's) * can poll https feeds * can poll from stdin (-) * can poll a file containing multiple copies of a feed (eg for testing) * can announce item urls containing percent * --cache-control option sets a HTTP Cache-Control header * --use-actions announces with CTCP ACTIONs (like the /me command)
