Is there an RSS feed for the forum?

I had an idea for an interesting project and was just wondering whether or not the forum has an RSS feed with a list of most recent posts. Any ideas?

No RSS unfortunately, and no sign it’ll ever be added ( I think it’s considered a dead format by many ). There is, however, a JSON feed which should be trivial to implement.

I agree with @gadgetoid RSS is still widely used but its dying.

You could try and include the following in a JSON reader.

http://forums.pimoroni.com/latest.json?max_posts=1

Whats this project your planning ? :)

@tigerfrost Some sort of physical computing project that notifies the user upon a new Pimoroni forums post.

EDIT: Oh wow! This forum system is practically built upon JSON, in that you can append “.json” to most things and collect raw data.

For example:
