I'm looking to take an existing RSS feed and duplicate it, (create a new feed that broadcasts content from the original feed). Both feeds, the original and the duplicate, will be on an intranet and blocked from the outside world, so I can't leverage any online services that may exist. Does anyone know of any existing applications that could be leveraged? Thanks!
There are many ways you could script this in just a few lines, but you should be able to do this using a command line utility like wget (builtin on linux, tiny downloadable executable for windows).
You could create a batch file (or just run the command below outright) that gets the original rss feed and outputs it to a file, then use task scheduler (on windows, not sure what on linux/unix/mac) to make it repeat say...every 15 minutes. Then on that machine, either with a web server you could make that file available as an rss file, or you might be able to just share it as a network share and access it from other computers (I doubt it though - can somebody clarify this?)
The syntax would be
where "url" is the location of the original feed on your intranet and "file.rss" is the location where you want the new feed to live.
