Get Last RSS Post


Simple script to get the latest post link from a RSS feed (usually, the second occurence of the <title> tag).

It provides a quick way to copy/paste the title and URL for social media. It can be useful to run after deploying a static website.

If toot is installed, it can post the output as a status. A prompt will ask for it.

This is mainly for personal use. CTRL-C/CTRL-V FTW!

If I had to choose a license, it would be MIT.
