I’ve known about Yahoo Pipes for many months, but finally found a good reason to use it today. I created a combined RSS feed from the presentations and critiques RSS feeds of the notk12onlineconference.org website, and then created a javascript badge (again using Yahoo Pipes) which I embedded on the left side of the K-12 Online Conference homepage. The current badge feed looks like this:

Similar to the way I include my current blog posts on my wesfryer.com homepage using RSS-to-JavaScript.com, Yahoo Pipes converts RSS feeds so they can be displayed as HTML on webpages. This is a VERY basic utilization of Yahoo Pipes, which can be used in much more complex ways. I like the display and formatting of the Yahoo Pipes badge output and may use it in the future on my main homepage.

One Response to Combining RSS feeds with Yahoo Pipes

    Thank you for sharing this. I had tried using yahoo pipes to modify a geo-tagged rss feed for use in creating a map of pictures, but I was unsuccessful. This looks like something I can handle though….and it’s very useful. I appreciate your post.
