tiddlywebplugins.imrss 0.9.3

Allows you to import rss/atom feeds into tiddlers on your TiddlyWeb through a twanager command imrss. Also provides imrsswithtags which provides a mechanism to tag non-tagged rss feeds.

A TiddlyWeb plugin that allows you to import rss feeds to bags through a twanager command
To use just add "tiddlywebplugins.imrss" to your twanager_plugins

Each item in an rss feed is mapped to a tiddler by the following rules

title:
guid / id attribute (preferred)
OR url with ":","/" and "." replaced with "_" character
text:
The text by default is saved as a link <html><p><b><a href="{{rss link}}">{{rss title}}</a>
{{rss description}} </p></html>
geo.long and geo.lat:
if geo data is present, the longitude and latitude will be matched to these feeds (works with <georss:point> and <georss:where>)
modifier:
the author of the rss item
modified:
the date field is used if present if not then the current date on time of command is taken

You can also create customisations by providing a handler. For example:

1) add to tiddlywebconfig
"imrss":{"module": "my_module"}
2) create a module my_module.py, inside which paste
def generic_handler(url,tiddler,feed_entry,feed=False,host=""):
tiddler.text = "foo"
return tiddler
3) run twanager imrss http://rssurl foo

The result will be tiddlers in foo from the rss feed, all with "foo" as the text. Obviously this example is rubbish but hopefully it gives you a starting point to explore further customisations.
