Question: rss aggregator as email digest

Sat, 12 Nov 2005 14:40:57 -0800

I'm looking for a way to aggregate my rss feeds into a daily digest that is sent to me via email. Is there such a beast?

Bloglet.

Actually, Feedblitz might be better, especially if you use FeedBurner (and if you don't it's really easy and free to setup).

It looks like these offer services for blog authors - what I want is something that forwards news items to my inbox, kind of like Rmail but in digest form. Unless I'm misunderstanding how these sites work.

Oh, I see... I misunderstood your question. So you want to be able to subscribe to certain feeds and instead of using a feed reader, have a daily summary e-mailed to you (and correct me if I'm wrong). I've heard of something like this. Let me check around in my bookmarks.

There is actually a python script called rss2email, but so far I haven't gotten it to work.

After rooting around a bit, FeedBlitz actually does everything that you need. See here for an explanation. But basically, you can input all the feeds you want and set it to send you one e-mail a day. A daily digest, as you put it.

Oh wow - that's perfect. Thanks panoptican.

no daily digest here, but I've been using rss popper to integrate my feeds into outlook, so they're read just like my email.
