README.md

feediverse will read RSS/Atom feeds and send the messages as Mastodon posts. It's meant to add a little bit of spice to your timeline from other places. Please use it responsibly.

Install

pip install feediverse

Run

The first time you run feediverse you'll need to tell it your Mastodon instance and get an access token which it will save in a configuration file. If you don't specify a config file it will use ~/.feediverse:

feediverse

Once feediverse is configured you can add it to your crontab:

*/15 * * * * /usr/local/bin/feediverse    

Run feediverse --help to show the command line options.

Post Format

You can customize the post format by opening the configuration file (default is ~/.feediverse) and updating the template property of your feed. The default format is:

{title} {url}

If you want you can use {summary} in your template, and add boilerplate text like so:

Bookmark: {title} {url} {summary}

{hashtags} will look for tags in the feed entry and turn them into a space separated list of hashtags. For some feeds (e.g. youtube-rss) you should use {link} instead of {url}.

{content} is the whole content of the feed entry (with html-tags stripped). Please be aware that this might easily exceed Mastodon's limit of 512 characters.

Multiple Feeds

Since feeds is a list you can add additional feeds to watch if you want.

...
feeds:
  - url: https://example.com/feed/
    template: "dot com: {title} {url}"
  - url: https://example.org/feed/
    template: "dot org: {title} {url}"
