Announcing Feed Monsters…

Published On: 2016-01-18By:

Did you use to use Yahoo! Pipes to manipulate RSS Feeds? Personal I did and I REALLY missed it when it was turned off by Yahoo. So like any good IT person I sat down (eventually) and did something about it. What I ended up building turned into what I’ve called “Feed Monsters“.  Feed Monsters is a web based service that lets you change values within RSS feeds, resort the values within the RSS feeds and filter the RSS feeds.

After you get signed up you create your monster and give it an RSS feed to chew on.  Then you add parts to your monster and those parts each make a different change to the RSS feed that you’ve given it.  As the service is being launched it supports 10 different parts that you can add to your monster.

Data Change Parts

  • Add Category from Publish Date
  • Add Prefix to Title
  • Add Suffix To Title
  • Clip Content
  • Post URL
  • Publish Date
  • Replace field {x} with field {y}
  • Title

Filter Parts

  • Top {n} Posts

Sorting Parts

  • Random Resorting

There’s plenty of more parts which we’ll be adding to the system in order to make RSS feeds even more changeable in the near future.

Registration for the service is free, and lets you try the service out for 10 days without having to pay anything. After that it’s only $20 a year (paid for paypal) to continue using the service.  Hopefully you find the service as valuable to use as I do.  Check out the Feed Monsters website for the full details about the service.
