Transcript

  • 1. Yahoo! Pipes
    (the 7.5 minute overview for Corporate Librarians / Information Professionals)
    Alexander Feng
  • 2. What is Yahoo! Pipes?
    “Pipes is a powerful composition tool to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the web.” (pipes.yahoo.com)
    …Or to put it another way that helps us:
    Combines internet data from multiple sources and feeds it into one:RSS feed, web page, map, slide show, list, Sharepoint page, email newsletter, phone, Twitter, Facebook …
  • 3. How It Helps
    Combines multiple RSS streams into one feed
    Enables custom filtering of RSS content
    On-the-fly translation of content
    Enables reformatting & publishing to other platforms / intranet (Sharepoint, email)
    Enables RSS for non-RSS sites
    Integrates with a web page easily (embed tags)
  • 4. Three “Easy” Use Cases
  • 5. Sample Use #1 (very easy)
    Combine multiple RSS feeds into one
  • 6. Combine this content(and sort by date)
  • 7. End result:
    http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=72bd80d1d4cec7efa106b3ab93daaef5
    (this is an RSS feed; it also can go on a webpage (embed) or in an email, to phone)
  • 8. Sample Use #2 & #3 (easy)
    - Add RSS feeds that need filtering
    - Foreign language sources
  • 9. Add this feed(but only add the P&G stuff)
    Solution: Filter by “Procter” for this feed only

  • 10. Add this French blog(but I want to read it in English)
    http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=821f7a4419dd4d1c36be4f49105ade65
  • 11. Just the tip of the iceberg…
    • Create your own feed for web pages without RSS feeds
    • 12. Modify embedded links in RSS
    • 13. Say, to redirect a link to Factiva instead of Lexis-Nexis
    • 14. Merge with Geolocation and display on a map
    • 15. Say, all the P&G news mapped by location
    • 16. Pull from CSV or XML files
    • 17. XBRL possibilities…
    • 18. Using helper applications
    • 19. Create an integrated, branded RSS email newsletter
    • 20. Archive your custom feeds for future reference
  • Potential Gotchas
    Requires IE7 or Firefox
    Entirely hosted by Yahoo!
    Only for items which are online
    (no items requiring authentication & proxy*)
    Tied to one username
    For advanced items, may need web know-how
    *doable, but difficult
