Something we often see is that rather than wanting to push everything from an RSS feed to a user, you might just want to send the user the latest n number of articles. With our old Push and Feeds services this was quite simple, but we’ve deprecated these in favour of the new, easier to use Broadcast service and it’s not quite so simple now. So here’s how to replicate this behaviour.
- Using the Webhooks & HTTP service set up a Get Request from the URL of your RSS feed:
- Trigger the Get request and look in your logs for your “Make and HTTP Request” task. Under Data heading for this task you’ll find the XML feed for the RSS feed.
- Using the XML feed from the Get request we can use data outputs to populate a card set as shown here:
Which will output something that looks like this to the user.
To make this easy to replicate here’s a working flow you can install and edit.
