Unattended OPML export

Postby JanW » 04 Aug 2013, 11:28

Hello,

Is there a way to export my OPML file unattended? I don't backup my TT-RSS because I export my OPML file once a week by hand, but I would like to automate that process. I would like a solution where I can just curl or wget the file from another location, maybe with a secret token in the URL.

Is there such a feature, an url to call, or something alike, a cron job on the tt-rss server?

It would probably be easy to write one. Here's one way to approach it: look to see what URL you're at when you download an OPML file, make a copy of the php file that is responsible. Edit the file and strip out everything except for the bit that calls the code that generates the OPML file -- you might need to hack in some stuff that figures out that you're logged in and who you are, so it knows how to call the opml-generating stuff for you. Done. Then just call that page using wget from cron. And it's easy to test: just try to visit the page with a web-browser until all it does is return your opml file.

Just in case, OPML publish url has been a feature for a few years now.
