Yahoo! pipes is closing up

I rely quite a bit on Yahoo! pipes: that tool is useful to aggregate feeds and spit only the interesting entries.

Therefore their announcement that they were closing up took me by surprise.

I just coded a replacement. Don't expect bells and whistles. It is a trimmed-down version. Should I say bare-bones?

Let me introduce PyCeed. It provides:
  • A web server that serves configuration pages and aggregated feeds
  • and nothing else :-)

That server is meant to be self-hosted. I intend to do just that, with an actual feed reader in front of it.

Stay tuned!

Happy hacking.
