superfeedr-blather

superfeedr-blather implements a Superfeedr PubSub XMPP client in Ruby using the Blather gem.

Starting up a connection and echoing new notifications is as easy as this:

setup YOUR_SUPERFEEDR_USERNAME, YOUR_SUPERFEEDR_PASSWORD

pubsub_event do |e|
  e.items.each do |i|
    puts "New post from #{i.entry.title}:"
    puts i.entry.content
  end
end

About

You get some patches for Blather and some classes that wrap the stuff you want from Superfeedr (entries, authors etc.).

Under-the-hood, Blather uses EventMachine and Nokogiri so it's fast and convenient. If you want to daemonize your client, daemon-kit comes ready with a blather template.

You might want to compare Superfeedr's own superfeedr-ruby which is based on a different XMPP lib, Skates.

Tips

Take a look in /examples for examples of handling notifications, (un)subscribing, and fetching the list of subscriptions.

When you're playing around, subscribe to Superfeedr's dummy.xml feed and use the button on www.superfeedr.com/users/kapoq/feeds/xmpp_console to generate a new notification on demand (“show console” displays the button).
