    Hello developers

    We are a small danish company who love RSS Owl. Still we have one request. Is it possible to filter RSS, make many RSS into one folder AND THEN afterwards automatically export them as one smart RSS feed to fx Flipboard or Hootsuite?

    Can you share a folder with content automatically with other services?

    The filter options in Owl is great!

    Best regards

    Soren and Kaare,

    As far as I know there is no way to export a filter's content from RSSOwl. The filter content is generated by RSSOwl by querying its internal feed database from rules defined as the filter.
    With some coding it should be easy to add a new INewsAction (those actions you can select in the filter configuration dialog) to e.g. run an external command from RSSOwl with the news matching the filter. See for how to hack on RSSOwl. The org.rssowl.core.internal.newsaction package contains some actions, they are configured and defined in org.rssowl.core/plugin.xml

    EDIT: It should be possible to use the "Open News in Browser" News Action to do what you want if you configure a different application as 'browser' in RSSOwl's preferences.
