How to Get the RSS Feed of a Revue Newsletter

To get the RSS feed of a newsletter hosted at Revue, enter the URL of the newsletter’s sign up and archive page into your feed reader. This returns a partial feed with an entry for each issue.

If the reader doesn’t recognize the feed, add ?format=rss to the newsletter’s URL. For example, the URL of my newsletter is http://newsletter.paoloamoroso.com and I can get the RSS by rewriting it as http://newsletter.paoloamoroso.com?format=rss

Another trick is to append ?format=text to the URL of an issue to get the ASCII text with some HTML formatting. An example is this URL of one of my issues http://newsletter.paoloamoroso.com/issues/freeing-up-storage-on-android-deleting-youtube-s-watch-history-and-more-252454 that returns the text via http://newsletter.paoloamoroso.com/issues/freeing-up-storage-on-android-deleting-youtube-s-watch-history-and-more-252454?format=text

The usual way of receiving a newsletter is via email. The archive page gives access to back issues, which you can browse as web pages. Receiving issues via RSS is another option of consuming a newsletter for advanced users and geeks, or a building block for tools and workflows.

Revue is the newsletter publishing platform I use for my newsletter Practicing Google. I wasn’t aware of these tricks, which Revue mentioned in the June 9, 2020 issue of their newsletter The Week In Newsletters.
