Import Feeds

Post by Kant » Sat Mar 29, 2003 9:27 pm

Is there anyway to import feeds?

I want to enter 50 feeds, but I am lazy to enter them one by one.

What format do you have the feed URL's in? If they are in OPML, there is a plugin that will import them for you. Open the Plugins tab in the Control Center, click on ImportOpml and specify where the OPML file lives. There is a known issue where the path must not contain spaces so you may need to make a copy of your OPML file somewhere and import from there.

If you just have a list of URL's, here's a quick hack. Make sure Awasu is not running and write a script to generate a bunch of files in your user's Channels directory (e.g. C:\Program Files\Awasu\Users\YOUR-NAME\Channels) that look like this:

[Config]
RssChannelUrl=...

The files can be called anything you like - Awasu generates them based on the URL - but they must have a .RSS extension.

They are in XML file.

Is there anyway to convert from XML to OPML format?

OPML is XML :-) Where did you get the file from? If it's from another RSS reader, there's a good chance it is OPML already.

Set up a file that looks like below and that will be enough for Awasu to import from:

<body>
<outline xmlUrl="..."> <!-- one of these for each channel -->
<outline xmlUrl="...">
<outline xmlUrl="...">
</body>
