DEV Community

Publishing from RSS or Atom

Front Matter

Our feed reader converts some elements from the RSS or Atom feeds to tags for the editor's front matter:

  • <title>: title, the title of the post
  • <category>: tags, only the first four <category> elements can be used in a post on DEV Community per each item in the feed.
  • <link>: canonical_url, only used if the "Mark the RSS source as canonical URL by default" option is enabled in the RSS Settings.

Post Content

The post content is prioritized in this order: <content>, <summary>, or <description>.

The HTML will be converted to Markdown as the body of the DEV Community post.

If you're using Medium RSS feed all its tweet links, YouTube, and Gist iframes will be converted to Liquid tags.
