There's this web serial that is completed named Worm which a few of my online friends have recommended to me. It's finished and located here:

How can I set up a rss feed where a chapter a day is pushed ?

* I'm doing this because I always read up what shows up in my rss feeds, this way I condition myself to actually finish this eventually.


I've been thinking about something similar before. The problem is that you can't go back in time and get the necessary entities from the original feed, so getting the actual content into the feed could be a bit tricky.

However, if you are satisfied with something simple that you give a list of links and it gives you a feed that pushes a new link from your list every day, that should be pretty easy. I don't know of any software that does this but it shouldn't take more than a weekend to create one.


You could just crawl the site with a python/ruby/whatever script and make a daemon post updates to some rss feed every day.

There's modules/libraries ready-made for that.


the rss file format is super simple xml:

so you could:

1: run a quick scrape for links on that page and stick them in a plaintext file.
2: write a script which removes one link from the head or tail of that file (depending on the ordering you used) and inserts a block for it into an rss file.
3: make a cron job to auto-run that script once a week.

…and you're done!


I see no problem with that except for the fact that the rss feed won't contain all the entries.
