The Background

RSS is a great way to distribute news (or really any article) in a distributed manner for reading by news aggregators. This helps automate pulling of content so that you don't need to go to a bunch of separate sites each day to see what's new (normally this is called web syndication).


Unfortunately, with the rise of social media, there's a bunch of sites which no longer feel the need to provide syndication feeds (or want you to ingest it only by signing up for their platform). This makes it difficult to keep up-to-date with those sites.


We try to solve this problem by giving syndication feeds (in the form of RSS feeds) to sites that could easily have feeds. You can find a list below of sites, each one might have multiple feeds, click the links below to find out more.

NHL provides updates on the NHL (and also runs each individual team's site). They used to provide their news as an RSS feed, but no longer seem to.
Patreon offers a subscription service for content creators and offers a way to post updates to them. The updates are only available by registering and subscribing over email or by visiting the website.
The Players' Tribune
The Players' Tribune provides a platform for athletes to write articles in their own words.
Pottermore offers news, features and other digital content to expand the Harry Potter universe.
The Wikipedia community provides articles on various current events, news, etc. that are nice to check daily.


This is done by downloading the content using requests and parsing it (usually with BeautifulSoup, but Wikipedia is parsed using mwparserfromhell). The content is then turned into an RSS feed using feedgenerator. Content is dynamically generated (each time you load an RSS feed it pulls the current content and recreates the feed).
