feed-collect: Watch RSS/Atom feeds (and do with them whatever you like).
RSS and Atom are common technologies for publishing news updates and watching then on the client side. Client programs do a variety of things with them: Display feed items for a human user to read, send them into IRC, convert them to e-mail messages, aggregate them into larger feeds ("planet"s) and so on.
This package tries to provide a generic API for handling a stream of news items, not tied to any specific use case.
Using the library you can launch a thread which collects news items, and
handles them using a custom action you provide. Expected usage in many cases
is to push items (or specific parts of them) into a
Chan, and have your
application's event loop thread do the actual logic.
Some related packages which make specific uses of feeds are
rss2irc. These 2 packages have inspired some ideas here.
