Yahoo Pipes + Solr’s API = RSS feeds for repository submitters

Posted on February 2, 2008


Quick post: Part of the reason for trying to get as many open APIs onto the services I put in place for the repository is so that I don’t have to customise things for every department or use; the interested parties can do it for themselves.

As a little proof, I have set up a Pipe that takes repository search results, based on an author’s name, and creates an RSS feed from it:

You should be able to clone this pipe, play with it, or simply use it for it’s intended purpose.
