    Hi. You can try using the AutoTools JSON Read action with the type set to XML. Then read the various fields available in an RSS feed :)

    AutoTools won't write it. It will read from the RSS URL directly :)

    Hmm... No :p If you want to read an RSS feed, you don't need to write it. Just read it with AutoTools :)
