Data Source

RSS is a widely used standard to distribute updates and content over the internet.


This module uses the Python library feedparser which might need to be to be installed before using this module.

When using Ubuntu GNU/Linux or any other Debian GNU/Linux based distribution you can install the package by invoking «apt-get install python-feedparser» as the root user.

Automatic appending

the <guid> property of an <item> in rss becomes following:

:ID: <id>

At beginning, if an outputfile exists this memacs module looks for existing id’s. Only new items are then appended.

Example Invocation

rss from URL -u "" -o "/home/user/orgmode/memacs/rss_foo.org_archive"

rss from file -f "/path/to/file.rss" -o "/home/user/orgmode/memacs/rss_foo.org_archive"

example with twitter (replace <USERNAME> with twitter-name): -u "<USERNAME>" -o "/home/user/orgmode/memacs/twitter-<USERNAME>.org_archive"
