Integrate External Rss Feed for Hugo Blog


We are thinking of using Hugo to build a number of static sites. For the most part, the content on the Hugo sites will be authored in Hugo, but we’d like to integrate content from an external RSS feed for Blog content. I didn’t see anything that specifically talks to this use case. Writing a script that generates the markdown for Hugo and triggers a build sounds like a viable solution, but feels a little hacky. Any other options?

Search the docs for “Data Driven Content.” You can’t create pages with that functionality, but you can pretty easily feed in external content. If you did want to go writing your script I think a few have done so. Maybe search Github for “Contentful Hugo,” and also look at what DatoCMS has done to get API-based content into Hugo. Hope that helps with some directions to start looking.
