Automate your newsletter with RSS!


You can now hook up an RSS feed to your newsletter to automate the process of adding new content to your newsletter.

This is a great way to keep your newsletter fresh and up to date, and the first of many steps forward in making Buttondown the best way to run a newsletter alongside an existing publication. (Write once, publish everywhere!)

This was a pretty big and gnarly feature to build out, and there's more to go. But it's a good start — a dozen newsletters have been quietly humming away using this infrastructure for the past month and I'm excited to see what people do with it now that it's open to the public.

You can start by getting your feed hooked up or, if you'd prefer, just read more about the various knobs and whistles in the documentation.
