RSS filtering is the new black

by

As many of our users know (and use), one of Dapper’s main strengths is the ability to get relevant content feeds by providing search terms to virtually any service on the web. But sometimes, that’s not enough, and for these situations, we’re introducing a new transformer called “Filtered RSS feed“. This is your usual RSS feed transformer, with a twist: you can define (case sensitive) keyword based filters to the title and the description of the RSS stories. Here are a couple of cool examples:

Traffic jam RSS feeds: Traffic jam RSS for 94102 , Same RSS feed, giving only reports for Hwy-101

Public companies recommendations from Reuters: All analysts recommendations, Same RSS feed, giving only “Buy” recommendations

We hope you’ll find it useful. If you’re a developer and want to extend it, feel free to give it a try. On that note, one of our users (thanks, pascal vanheckea) found Dapper useful enough to create a cool Dapper instruction video.

You know you’ve made it when your users are video-taping 🙂
