Hm, ok now...
Maby "Fetch" requires a rssxml source?

Has anyone found something useful to do with it yet? :D

Turning a feed into a flickr picture stream is fun, but .... so what? It'll be great when you can program your own modules that do stuff – compare and re-rank content from multiple streams, etc...

But there you need something (like an api-key or so).
Maby its for soap or things like that.

Hi

Once you have saved you pipe, go to My Pipes, select the new pipe, then click Run Pipe.

This will give you the first list of results, at the bottom of this list is the little, tiny, logo to save as a RSS feed.

Good idea but b...dy hard to work out how to use it

Hope this helps

No, wo don´t want the Pipe-Feed, peculiar the xml version from a google-query.

Philipp, the fetch module's tooltip says it will fetch a feed from the URL you input, so that won't work to parse results out of a Google Search Results page and put it into a feed.

I haven't played around with it enough yet to see if there's a way to do it, but at a glance it looks like it can only do operations on feeds and not actual webpages.

You can use Dapper (http://www.dappit.com) to create RSS feeds (and much more) from pages, such as search results, to be used as source in Yahoo Pipes.

One of the big differences between Google search and Yahoo search is that Yahoo search is available as an API. You'll notice that on every Yahoo search results page there is a feed that you can subscribe to. Google doesn't like giving away free searches.

Sam, there are a number of Google APIs. See:

Tight ass shit my ninja! I don't see what the problem is though. I started with Daniel's News Aggregator and added several queries like msdn.microsoft.com and groups.google.com and had no problems at all. I started here: http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/fELaGmGz2xGtBTC3qe5lkA/

So does this let you combine multiple RSS feeds? I can't get the page to load but that's the impression I get from the original post. I've been looking for a way to combine the RSS feeds of all my blogs for a while.

Yep, you can combine RSS feeds, filter feeds to only get certain content you're looking for, and a lot more. It's not necessarily as flexible as I had hoped, but it's pretty good.

For example, I wanted to learn about all of the new Firefox releases. Mozilla's dev blog has a feed, and they categorize their posts (i.e. "Releases") but you can't get a feed just for a specific category on Mozilla's page. So I created a feed that filtered to match only the Releases category and give me just those posts and got what I want.
