imm

imm is a tool to execute arbitrary actions for each new element from RSS/Atom feeds (e.g. sending a mail, or writing a file).

imm is written and configured in Haskell.

Technical documentation is available at hackage.

To get started, please consult documentation of Imm.Boot module.

Example use cases

Online feed reader

For the sake of I-want-the-mutt-of-feed-readers zealots, it is possible to turn any mail reader into a feed reader, by having imm send an e-mail with unread elements to an arbitrary address. You can then browse your feeds through your favourite mail reader, and leverage any mail-related tool on your feeds. Bonus points if your mail reader is online as you can now access your feeds from any computer connected to the Internet.

Check out Imm.Hooks.SendMail module.

Offline read-it-later

imm is able to store a local copy of unread elements, to read them later while offline for example. External links won't work offline though.

Check out Imm.Hooks.WriteFile module.

Example usage

  • Subscribe to a feed:

    imm subscribe http://your.feed.org
    
  • Import feeds from an OPML file:

    cat feeds.opml | imm import
    
  • List subscribed feeds:

    imm show
    
  • Unsubscribe from a feed:

    imm unsubscribe http://your.feed.org
    
  • Check for new elements without executing any action:

    imm check
    
  • Execute configured actions for each new element from subscribed feeds:

    imm run
    
You can’t perform that action at this time.
