hook.io-feedsub Build Status

Will "subscribe" to a web RSS/Atom/JSON feed and emit any new items it reads from it. The events are in the form of

*::name::item

Where name is the name of the feed. So if you are using the example config.json that looks like this

{
  "feeds": [
    {
      "name": "cnn",
      "url": "http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_latest.rss",
      "interval": 10,
      "emitOnStart": false
    }
  ]
}

Programatically, this is how you would listen for new feed items..

hook.on('*::cnn:item', function(item) {
  console.log('New Story!:', item.title);
});

hook.on('*::item', function(feed) {
  console.log('New Story from: ', feed.name);
  console.log(feed.item);
});

It uses feedsub to read feeds. Take a look at its constructor API for all the options that can be passed to it.
