PourOver for App.net is now available

Hello Daring Fireball readers! If you don’t yet have an App.net account,¬†use this link to create a free account which will follow @DaringFireball.¬†


By popular demand, the App.net team has been working on a new syndication tool called PourOver.


Why would I want to use PourOver?

PourOver makes it dead simple to publish an RSS feed to an App.net account.

Once you authorize¬†PourOver, simply paste in your RSS URL, preview what your posts will look like, then click “Save Feed.” That’s all there is to it.


PourOver Features:

  • PuSH support: if your RSS feed has Pubsubhubbub support, PourOver will update your feed in realtime.
  • Link entity support: PourOver will publish your feed using App.net link entities.
  • Flow control: PourOver has built-in flow control. The default setting is one post every minute.
  • Open source: Feel free to see how PourOver works, submit a pull request, or run it on your own. The source to PourOver is available on Github.

If you know someone who hasn’t had a chance to setup an App.net account for their blog, you should let them know about PourOver. They can be up and running in moments.
