RSS Fulltext Proxy ๐Ÿ“ƒ

Can "proxy"/mirror any RSS Feed to fetch full-text Content. Allows integration into any feed reader, without plugins or further configuration required.

Deployment

Using Docker (recommended)

  1. Download and modify the docker-compose.yml file to your liking.
  2. Run docker-compose up -d

Manually

  1. Clone the repository: git clone https://github.com/Kombustor/rss-fulltext-proxy.git
  2. Change working path: cd rss-fulltext-proxy
  3. Install dependencies: npm install
  4. Compile: npm run build
  5. Run: node dist/server.js

Note: You have to set the environment variables described in Configuration yourself, and you have to start a local redis server.

Configuration

The application is easily configurable with environment variables.

Name Type Default Description
PORT number 3000 The port the webserver listens on.
REDIS_URL string redis://127.0.0.1 The redis connection URL for caching.
CACHE_EXPIRY_SECONDS number 900 The number of seconds for cache entries to expire.

Usage

We have to define two query parameters:

Identifier Description
feed The original feed URL to proxy.
selectors URL-encoded string[] of CSS-selectors.

Example:

  • Feed URL: http://rss.sueddeutsche.de/rss/Topthemen
  • Query Selectors of relevant HTML elements: ["figure.asset-image", "section.body > p, section.body > h3"]
  • URL-encoded selectors using this website: %5B%22figure.asset-image%22%2C%20%22section.body%20%3E%20p%2C%20section.body%20%3E%20h3%22%5D
  • The URL we are adding to our feed reader is: http://host:post/?feed=http://rss.sueddeutsche.de/rss/Topthemen&selectors=%5B%22figure.asset-image%22%2C%20%22section.body%20%3E%20p%2C%20section.body%20%3E%20h3%22%5D
  • We are getting full-text RSS content for this feed. ๐Ÿ”ฅ
