This project evolved from a CouchApp that stored PubSubHubbub notifications in CouchDB into a Node.js app that actively fetches feeds and stores them in Couch. Original concept by @tylergillies (Tyler Gillies)
Architecture: a 'parent' node process (couchpubtato.js) monitors a database on a CouchDB for any documents that have both a "feed" and "db" attribute. Anytime it sees a matching document it will spawn a worker that will fetch the url contained within the "feed" attribute and save each item into the local CouchDB specified in the "db" field.
To try out:
# install latest node + npm # start couchdb # clone this repo npm install request npm install jsdom git submodule init git submodule update ruby create_test_data.rb http://admin:password@localhost:5894 node couchpubtato.js http://localhost:5984/feeds
Then look in the 'articles' database on Couch :)
