RSS to CSV Converter

This is a simple script to convert RSS feeds into CSV format, suitable for importing into Excel.

Notes:

  • Excel does not properly handle UTF-8 CSV files, so you may see some corruption if the RSS feed contains international characters
  • Fields output are: title, link, description, pubDate, guid
  • Only RSS feeds are supported - not Atom; if interested in Atom support, let me know
  • Original blog post: RSS to CSV Converter
  • Source code available on Github: https://github.com/bcantoni/rss-to-csv
