Popular Questions Feed? October 31, 2009 6:24 PM   Subscribe

Is there an RSS version of http://ask.metafilter.com/home/popularfavorites?

I think this is the right place to ask. I checked the FAQ and there's a Posts and Comments but nothing Question or AskMe specific.

No, but there's a feed for Popular Favorites across all sites.

Looks like that corresponds to a best in the last 7 days? I suppose I can strip out the non ask.metafilter items.

Yeah, seven days. The Popular Favorites feed is the top 20 posts across sites in the last week.

I guess then for posterity, I'll note that I used:

xmlstarlet ed -d "//*/item/link[not(starts-with(text(),'http://ask'))]/.."

to delete all the non questions from the feed.
