README.md

mastorss dumps RSS feeds into a mastodon account. Supports RSS 2.0 but not RSS 0.92. Does not support Atom at the moment.

<item>s in feeds must have <link>, <title> and <description>.

The documentation is far from complete, sorry.

Usage

Put watchwords.json into ~/.config/mastorss/. Launch with profile name. The first occurence of every watchword in an RSS item will be turned into a hashtag. For profile-specific watchwords see the example in watchwords.json. In the first run only the newest entry is tooted.

The profile can’t be named “global”.

Example config file

${HOME}/.config/mastorss/config-example.json

{
    "example": {
        "instance": "botsin.space",
        "feedurl": "https:\/\/example.com\/feed.rss",
        "access_token": "123abc",
        "max_size": 400,
        "titles_only": false,
        "skip":
        [
            "If the entry starts with this, skip it",
            "Skip me too!"
        ],
        "fixes":
        [
            "delete this",
            "<p>[Rr]ead more(\.{3}|…)</p>"
        ],
        "append": "#bot"
