Sometimes I want to stay up-to-date with a website which does not have a good RSS feed, like KiTTY's. Of course I could use services like feed43. Or I just write my own solution.

rssparser.lisp on Bitbucket

Example:

% ./rssparser.lisp add "KiTTY" "http://www.9bis.net/kitty/?action=news&zone=en" ".news" "h1" ""
Success!
   
% ./rssparser.lisp list
1 feed is set up:
   
ID: 23  Title:        KiTTY
        URL:          http://www.9bis.net/kitty/?action=news&zone=en
        Last success: -

% ./rssparser.lisp parse
       
By default, the KiTTY website feed will be stored as feeds/feed23.xml then.

Enjoy.
