Full Bot Build: RSS Feed Reader

Full Bot Build: RSS Feed Reader Bot

In this session, we’ll walk through creating a bot from start to finish that can read an RSS feed from wired.com, parse the RSS feed using some commands from the XML Package and Loops Package, and create an HTML page from a template in the referenced GitHub link below.

While creating this exact bot build may not be something you have an immediate need for – think about other use cases when your bot may need to parse XML (possibly to read bot settings files, or pass data between bot/sub-task) or create an HTML (building an html based email, creating an html page breaking down the bot run results, or a bot that creates a dashboard based on the logs of other bots).

Packages Used

Step Package, XML Package, Loop Package, Log To File Package, REST Web Services Package, Datetime Package, Step Package
