    hubot-rss-alerts

    Hubot watches an RSS feed, announces when there are any new items

    Installation

    Install the script using npm:

    npm install --save hubot-rss-alerts
    

    Enable it by adding to your external-scripts.json file.

    [
      ...
      "hubot-rss-alerts",
      ...
    ]
    

    Configuration

    There are two required settings:

    • HUBOT_ALERTS_RSS_FEED - should contain the URL of the feed you want Hubot to monitor
    • HUBOT_ALERTS_RSS_ANNOUNCE_ROOM - should contain the room name where Hubot will announce new feed items

    There are some other optional settings you may want to change:

    • HUBOT_ALERTS_RSS_INTERVAL - how often (in seconds) to check the RSS feed - default: 300 (5 minutes)
    • HUBOT_ALERTS_RSS_PREPEND - text to prepend to alert messages - default: "RSS Alert"
    • HUBOT_ALERTS_RSS_BROKEN_TZ_ADJUSTMENT - if a feed's timezone is broken set this to adjust it - default: 0
    • HUBOT_ALERTS_RSS_SKIP_FIRST - skip any items when first checking the feed - default: true (set to false for debugging)

    Notes, Plans, etc.

    Currently only handles one RSS feed -- I might work on fixing that next.
