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.
- 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.
