10. Unconventional Feeds > 10.4. Amazon.com Wishlist to RSS

Amazon.com Wishlist to RSS

Being perfection herself, my wife loves books, and as a loving and dutiful husband, her Amazon wishlist is required reading for Christmas, birthdays, and all other occasions. But keeping track of the wishlist is a pain if I have to trudge over to Amazon every time. Far better to have my feed reader do it for me, with the help of a little script. Figure 10-1 shows my wishlist to give you an idea of what one looks like.

This feed uses the Amazon Web Services API to do its evil work. This can be either REST- or SOAP-based, so you can choose your own preferred poison. For fun, I’ll do this using the REST interface, and then using XML::Simple to parse the XML. My idea of fun might not be the same as yours, of course.
