Feedreader


Add an RSS/Atom feed reader that polls feeds every hour and sends new entries into the event bus.

To use RSS feeds in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
feedreader:
  urls:
    - https://home-assistant.io/atom.xml
    - https://github.com/blog.atom

Configuration variables:

  • urls (Required): List of URLS for your feeds.

Feedreader events can be used out of the box to trigger automation actions, e.g.:

automation:
  - alias: Trigger action when new element(s) in RSS feed
    trigger:
      platform: event
      event_type: feedreader
    action:
      service: script.turn_on
      entity_id: script.my_action

For more advanced use cases, a custom component registering to the feedreader event type could be used instead:

EVENT_FEEDREADER = "feedreader"
hass.bus.listen(EVENT_FEEDREADER, event_listener)

To get started developing custom components, please refer to the developers documentation
