Hi Ben... Just real quick... great job on Sendy! Wanted to see if theres been any updates in regards to the RSS to Email piece?
Yea... both of these features are musts for me, and I'm already a customer. Sendy is top notch!
RSS to Email would be a killer feature, I would be using it right now, is there an estimate on when that will be ready?
Any progress on this? I've been using Feedburner just for RSS to email. It would be great to get that into Sendy as well. Maybe added to the API for starters?
Any update on this?
Hi, any news on this?
Hi @ben, any news about? Thanks!
@ben is this possible by now?
Chiming in on RSS campaigns with another vote.
Great software @ben :)
+1 on RSS-to-Email.
How is this going?
+1 would love to see this
Hey @ben , I purchased sendy 6 months ago without realizing that it was lacking this feature (which is the only feature I really need). in September 2012 you stated it's "on the roadmap". Since then a number of users have asked about this. What's the status here? Is that still "on the roadmap"? Is it gonna take another 2 years?
Can we get an answer to this? If it's not a feature that will be released soon, we will write the code ourselves.
Please! This is a must for me too….
In case it is needed +1 Here.
Hey @ben, its been sometime that people are asking for this feature. Is this comming out anytime soon? Is there an alternate method we could use until this is out?
Hi, has there been any progress with RSS to email?
I have just finished writing a software solution for publishing RSS feeds as Sendy campaigns for some personal projects I am working on. I would be happy to implement this for anyone who is interested, but I would have to charge a support/consulting fee to get you up and running as it requires some tech know-how to set things up. If there is enough demand (and the Sendy folks don't come up with their own solution), I might consider polishing it up for a wider audience.
Perhaps you could add this solution to Github? Or maybe sell it to @ben so he doesn't need to create it himself and we don't have to be waiting for it... Please, spread the solution!
At the moment, I don't have the time to put into thoroughly documenting the software. It is not a point-and-click solution like Sendy, but a command line program (written in Python) that is run from cron. Secondly, it uses a templating engine (Jinja2) that programmers like, but again, isn't for non-technical users. Explaining its usage will require some solid docs, and I really don't know how much energy I want to put into those documents when the majority of Sendy users are likely to be non-technical. Hence I have not put it up on Github.
On the other hand, it would be possible to make a nice web UI for the software, but I don't see much point expending the energy if Sendy has their own implementation in the pipeline. I have doubts that the Sendy folks would be interested in purchasing my solution as it isn't written in PHP.
Hi dtougas, I am really interested on your solution. Are you using the new API for creating and sending the campaigns? Did you make any change on the code?
What I would really like is to know if Sendy has this on the pipeline or not.
Hi @ben, No updates on this yet?
+1 Also putting in my vote for pulling rss content into automatically generated email campaigns... the one thing that's preventing me from importing some of my mailchimp lists.
+1 My vote also for the
+1 ditto :-)
+1 My vote also
+1 This is a must have feature for me and required for migrating off of mailchimp.
Hey @doleague, I didn't see your reply until just now... if you are still interested in this let me know. Send me a direct message.
Hey Ben, how about creating some features voting option where everyone would vote for important features and you guys could develop them and sell them as add-on's. You can know how many interested to buy and then device if its worth spending time on those features or not.
Any update on integrating RSS to Email into Sendy? It looks like there is a lot of demand for this.
At this juncture has anyone else been able to find a workaround or hack for this feature?
Any update to this Ben?
If this feature gets added then I will move off mailchimp for sure. This is the one thing keeping me from switching :(\
I'm guessing that Ben may have planned that for a major update/version but has not decided which one it will be!
+1 so I can move away from Mailchimp altogether. Update on this feature please?
I definitely need this feature. Any word on when this will happen? It's pretty much the biggest puzzle piece (if not the last) for moving me from Mailchimp.
Thanks for an outstanding program!
For all who are interested, I just released my Sendy RSS newsletter generation code on GitHub: https://github.com/peakdata/sendyrsspub
Looks interesting, though not so easy for those of us who are not developers..
Making things easy for non-techies is a lot of effort. I am not about to invest a ton of time in making something super user friendly just to have the Sendy developers release their own solution overnight.
THANK YOU! @dtougas
