Dependencies

This library is using my forked version (which enabled https urls) of node-easyrss (which uses libxmljs) to parse ATOM/RSS feeds.

In addition to that you need to have libxml2-dev and scons in your system.

You can install these packages on Debian-based system with command:

aptitude install scons libxml2-dev

Examples

var rss = require('rssee').create({'interval':300, 'ignore_first_run': true}),
    sys = require('sys');

rss.on('article', function(a) {
	console.log('new article received: ' + sys.inspect(a));
});

rss.start('http://localhost:8080/rss.xml');
