Using Yahoo Pipes to strip images from RSS feed

by on Jun.17, 2011, under Geeky

I’ve been subscribed to the It Made My Day RSS feed for ages, but fairly recently they started adding pointless cutesy image macros as well as the text – I don’t want to see those in the feed as they’re generally hard to read and a waste of bandwidth.

So, Yahoo Pipes to the rescue – I created a simple pipe which fetches the IMMD feed, uses regexes to strip out the images, then subscribed to the result of that pipe.

Job done – if you’re interested, the pipe feed URL to subscribe to is http://pipes.yahoo.com/bigpresh/immdnoimages.
