Download the latest version from the releases directory in the repository or build yourself with
$ scala podagg.jar feed.config
feed.config is a configuration file formatted like the example in this repo.
… and in addition
sources.txt (from the config) is a newline-seperated list of podcast feed .rss urls like below:
… make certain your sources.txt file does not end with an empty line and has no extra whitespace.
An example of a simple script that could be run with cron to automate feed updates is below:
#!/bin/bash update="scala /path/to/Podagg.jar /path/to/feed.config" # Update the feed and record a log of successes or failures # based on exit status (0 and 1 for success and failure) if $update; then echo "rss update at: $(date)" >>"/path/to/autoruns.log" 2>&1 else echo "ERROR! at $(date)" >>"/path/to/autoruns.log" 2>&1 fi
