Yahoo Pipes Madness – Episode 1

yahoopipemadnessIn last few weeks i studied some RSS, GoogleReader and FriendFeed protocols and built yahoo Pipes “for fun and profit”. Here the list and the description, take it with some assumptions:

Every pipe you want to “use into a pipe” (by dropping it from left-menu) has as input a feed or a webpage, you can’t use it “in the middle” of an item feed analysis redirecting stream of item into it. This behaviour limits construction of “pipes as module”, then CLONE IT or TAKE IT AS INSPIRATION for your pipe.

List of my “public” pipes (consider this as freezed, if I’ll update it I’ll clone a 0.2 version and so on ..):

  • CJFPM – Rss4FriendFeed – 0.1 : prepare an Rss feed to be more “appetible” from FriendFeed: remove “[feedly]” from title, build a better item.comment to post it as a plain comment on FF.
  • CJFPM – GoogleReader Badge to RSS – 0.1 : retrieves a Google Reader Badge OPML file, re-maps the item names and then downloads items for each feed. Use “CJFPM – Feed Attribution on Title” to add at every item attribution “from” incoming feed.
  • CJFPM – Feed-Buster – 0.1 : construct appropriate feeds and return feed elements using Feed-Buster that is “MediaInjection which injects media enclosure links into feed posts based on media present in the item description and content” and have a lot of other cool features (see Docs on Feed-Buster website).

If you have improvements / suggestions / requests: comment there or send me a direct message on FriendFeed!!
