Medium Export

An example of how easy it can be to generate a site based on an RSS feed. In this instance focussed on Medium's RSS Feeds

Quick start

You can get your own version of this site by just clicking the button below, and then providing a suitable Medium RSS feed URL.

Deploy to Netlify

What will clicking that button do?

Fair question. After clicking the button, Netlify will ask for your permission to clone this repo into your own GitHub account, and then create a new site for you in Netlify linked to that repo. It will also ask for a feed to ingest at build time (see below if for some to pinch if you need to).

Then it will build and deploy a new site for you, complete with hosting and continuous deployment all configured.

The whole thing should take less than a minute!

Medium RSS Linkspiration:
