    Stack Overflow RSS

    Install

    npm install stack-overflow-rss
    

    Use

    var stackOverflowRss = require('stack-overflow-rss');
     
    // get the latest javascript questions
    var consumer = stackOverflowRss({ tag: 'javascript'});
    consumer.on('update', function(questions) {
      console.dir(questions);
    });
    consumer.update();
     
    // poll the most voted json and node.js questions feed
    var anotherConsumer = stackOverflowRss({ tags: ['json', 'node.js'], sort: 'votes'});
    anotherConsumer.on('new', function(newQuestions) {
      console.dir(newQuestions);
    });
     

    Requiring 'stack-overflow-rss' returns a function used to consume question feeds. The following options are allowed:

    • tag or tags - The question tags.
    • sort - Default is 'newest'. Can also be 'unanswered', 'active', 'votes' or 'faq'.
    • pollInterval - Default is 1000 * 60 * 2 (2 minutes).
    • lazy - Defer polling until the first subscription to 'new'. Default is true. You can use consumer.update()to trigger a single update.

    Upon registering, an EventEmitter is returned. The events to mind are:

    • 'update' - triggered every time the questions are fetched.
    • 'new'- triggered only when new questions exist. At leat two updates must be done to trigger this event.
