NOTE: For some reason, the IFTTT is not currently working for the RSS. Any help would be appreciated. I love the idea if I can get it to work consistently.

Push Feeds from Devtome Recent Changes to SMS (or email or Evernote or Dropbox, etc.)

I've been trying to follow new articles published on Devtome and have found myself repeatedly refreshing the page to see if anything has been posted. At the same time, I received an email update from If This Then That that lets you set up actions between different apps. And I thought, hmm, no more F5 bombs on the Devtome recent page.

For example, if you want a Facebook post of every Digg you make, set up the “recipe” and it's done instantly. Set up a Craiglist alert and have it delivered to your Endnote or Dropbox or have it create a shortlink with bit.ly.

Create the RSS feed:

  1. Insert it into the box at Page2RSS.

Make your alert:

  1. Create an IFTTT.
  2. Create a new recipe.
  3. Click the blue “this” in the word “ifthisthenthat”. i.imgur.com_jiulyl1.jpg
  4. Select the "Feed" option. It's the orange RSS button, fourth row down, second column.
  5. Choose “New feed item” to create an all-inclusive alert or choose “New feed item matches” to use a keyword alert for your RSS feed.
  • You should now see something like this:

I chose to receive an SMS every time a new article is pushed to Devtome. To connect your own recipe, just follow the steps. For SMS:

  1. Scroll down to the SMS button.
  2. In the pop up, put in your number. You'll receive a pin. Enter it in the pop up.
  3. Now you'll be asked to customize the texts you'll receive by entering “ingredients” to your recipe. I just went with some basics. You can edit the black text to customize what your SMS looks like when it's delivered. The ingredients don't need edited. Just add or delete them with the amount of detail you like.

  1. Select “create action,” give it a description and you're ready to roll.

Since it's already been created, you can just search for “Devtome Recent,” but just enjoy making your own combos. Feel free to update this Devtome entry is there are any errors.
