I’ve become accustomed to using RSS as an efficient way of keeping up with changes on web sites, but some sites simply don’t offer RSS (for whatever reason). So I was delighted to find Feedity, a free service which claims to be able to create RSS for any web page.
You visit the Feedity site, enter the web address of the site you want to create a feed for and it generates a feed that you can incorporate into an RSS reader. And if you want to, Feedity also provides for a quick and simple way to build a data mashup “pipeline” using Yahoo Pipes.
Overall, it works well – few minor hitches with some web pages but worth trying nonetheless.
However, you obviously shouldn’t use this in a mission critical environment – there are no guarantees re timeliness, uptime or the like.
