Merry Christmas everyone!
Time for another release, possibly the last one of this year. Enjoy!

The new widget that can display a feed from any public source. It pairs nicely with the new RSS integration mentioned below.

RSS integration

This integration connects to any publicly available RSS feed. Both Atom and RSS formats are supported.

HTTP integration

Adds ability to create an HTTP request that can be triggered by the action widget. Request is configurable with method (GET, POST, PUT), headers, body, username and password.

Thank you

HomeHabit 23.0
Available starting December 24, 2021

Hi,

Doesn’t work if the rss url not finish by “rss.xml”. Many flux do not have “rss.xml” extension.

https://www.ouest-france.fr/rss.xml?insee=22223
http://rss.allocine.fr/ac/actualites/

@djpostka Thanks for reporting, will check on those feeds. URL format shouldn’t matter as long as response is properly formatted, but maybe there is a bug somewhere.

it’s strange, i couldn’t get any feed (atom or rss) to work.
I have the error “error Retrying in x seconds”

@djpostka This will be fixed in the next release. First two feeds had issues with the date format.
The last feed (http://rss.allocine.fr/ac/actualites/) actually worked for me as is. However, it had empty channel title, so maybe it was hard to find it in the list of items.
One thing to note, that if all feeds are combined in the same integration config, integration will error out even if only one feed is failing.

Hello and happy new years!

Thanks for this news update 24.0, however, the RSS feeds still not working for me :frowning:

Do you have a working flow that I can try with this one? Thank you

@djpostka Can you try http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/rss.xml?
Also, what is specifically not working, is there integration error or something else?

Hello,

It’s a connection problem, no one rss flux working… Test on my phone and my tablet.

@djpostka Can you disable and then enable RSS integration again, and upload debug logs from Support screen right after it fails to connect?

It’s ok, log upload

Thanks for uploading. Will be fixed in the next patch release.

great, what’s the problem then?

Locale issue - I think when device set to non-English language, it fails date processing for RSS feeds.

Hello,
I want to use HTTP requests, but how do I use them? In the action widget I don’t see anything to make an HTTP request.
Please help me :slight_smile:
Thanks in advance!

@rednas Requests need to be configured within HTTP integration before they can be used in widgets. Did you already setup HTTP integration with one or more requests?
