Suitable code for displaying an RSS feed as a list on a post?

Here you go https://axiomatic-breeze-1.glitch.me/

Thanks @digitalgyoza! It looks like something with the token.

In stuff.py for the ‘token’ variable up top, copy the value you put in os.environ.get() and replace it with ‘TOKEN’. It should look like this:

token = os.environ.get('TOKEN')

Now paste that value into the .env file (the one with the key next to it). It should be formatted as follows (no spaces and all):

TOKEN="abcd-1234-efgh-5678"

Then refresh the app and try it again to see what happens. The post should update with the list!

Oh gosh, I’m so silly… I placed the actual token in both fields! Got it to work finally. Thanks once again!

I have noticed that if I write some standard text as an intro before the feed links, and then the RSS feed updates itself, it removes the manually added text. how could I overcome this?

Awesome! No problem at all.

Funny you mention the intro text - that is the one thing I want to implement next with this. I will spin something up and let you know where to add it into the Glitch app. Shouldn’t be too complicated.

So I found a way to add introductory text to the post. I added it to the original app here so go ahead and remix it. The text will be added in stuff.py like the other values.

For you @digitalgyoza, just paste what you have into the ‘intro’ variable like so:

intro = '![](https://i.snap.as/b4xSz26.jpg)\nVarious articles, websites and other interesting snippets that have caught my eye for future reading...'

Hope that helps! Let me know if it works.
