Create a rss feed file for any website ?

Post by derba » Mon May 28, 2012 3:59 pm

Hi,

Would it be possible with Helium to create a rss file that I could open from my computer (C:\rss_files\website.rss) for websites that doesn't have rss feeds ?

For instance : keeping only the titles and their urls for your blog (I know there is already a rss feed!) :
http://heliumscraper.com/wordpress/

Then I would open the rss file from my computer and it would alone go to your website url and check the current titles available and displays them in my browser (Firefox for example).

I have tried to do it in Helium but I don't know exactly how I can do that with xml/rss !
Here my example Helium file :

Thanks in advance ;)

Hi,

Here is a video that shows how to use the custom export feature. Then you could use a custom export action to export to an RSS file. You could set your project to run, say, once a day so your file stays updated.

Is this what you're trying to do?
