Filter dailies from RSS feed using Yahoo pipes

Written June 5, 2007. Tagged RSS.

Among others, I subscribe to the RSS feeds for Filip's blog and my network.

Filip has his RSS feed set up to include daily summaries of his activity. But I already get that data through my network feed. I just want his regular blog posts.

So I created a Yahoo pipe that filters them out. It was insanely simple.

I generalized this into another pipe that takes any feed URL as input. So to create your own ("disagreeable"

?) feeds, that pipe is probably the easiest way. Or just clone the first pipe and modify it.
