Full-text RSS bookmarklet

This site offers a nifty utility for dealing with those annoying sites which offer only partial text content in their RSS and Atom feeds.

Given an RSS or Atom feed’s URL, the CGI will iterate through the posts in the feed, scrape the full text of each post from its HTML page, and re-generate a new RSS feed containing the full text.

The one thing it’s missing is a one-click bookmarklet version. So here it is:

Full-text RSS Bookmarklet

Drag that to your bookmarks menu, and next time you’re looking at a partial-text feed, click the bookmark to transform the viewed page into the full-text version. Enjoy!

    I recently created a similar service (along with a bookmarklet for it). If anyone’s interested, click my name to try it out. It’s a free software (open source) project so code is also available.

    so how could I change the code of the RSS feeds from my site in order to show full articles?

    Could you please help me?

    hi nixanbal — it’s really quite complicated and dependent on the weblog software you use! I’m sorry, I can’t suggest anything useful…
