Generate RSS Feeds From Gab Profiles

By stephenvk

Hey guys, this is just a quick update to let you know about a new PHP script I wrote to generate an RSS feed for a Gab profile. To use it just replace my username in that link with that of the account you want to subscribe to, and it will fetch the account’s ID and redirect you to its RSS feed (e.g. https://stephenvk.xyz/gab2rss/?id=1078658). This way you don’t have to manually figure out the ID, and it doesn’t have to make an extra API request every other time to get it for you. Unfortunately it will not work with tags and groups, because those require an authentication token to access, I don’t really want to use mine, and they haven’t issued API tokens for a while now due to security concerns. But yeah other than that it does pretty much what you’d expect a Gab to RSS bridge to do, maybe I’ll adapt it for use in RSS-Bridge. And last but not least, here’s the source code.
