Who remembers & used “Yahoo Pipes”?
Yahoo Pipes was a power web application used by the developers and programmers to manipulate, aggregate and mashup content from all over the web, create the web apps and publish them. Unfortunately it was discontinued in 2015.
I used it myself and loved it. Not sure why Yahoo discontinued it… but Yahoo Pipes was the “be all” & “end all” for me. Luckily I was able to replace it with other bits and pieces of other applications.
Good News is …. Yahoo Pipes now has been replicated and replaced by Pipes.digital and users don’t need programming experience to get good results.
Pipes offers a visual programming interface much like Yahoo Pipes. You can enter data by pointing a block to an URL and an RSS (or Atom) feed. The feed then moves through the user’s pipe, block by block, and each block can manipulate it.
A simple example is combining many RSS feeds into one and filtering that combined data stream for a keyword.
- Pipes lets users to pipe information from different sources.
- Users can then set up rules to modify the content.
- Users can filter the data.
