Installation

$ pip install feeddiasp

Usage example

from feeddiasp import FeedDiasp, FBParser, RSSParser

#Sync posts from a facebook site
fb = FBParser(user='spiegelonline', auth_token='...')
bot = FeedDiasp(parser=fb, pod='https://diasp.eu', username='zwirbel', password='Blume123', db='posts.txt')
bot.publish()

#Sync posts from a RSS feed

bot = FeedDiasp(parser=rss, pod='https://diasp.eu', username='zwirbel', password='Blume123', db='posts.txt')
