Game news from Steam YQL table

I’m going to illustrate a use of the previously posted Steam YQL Open Table. We’re going to create an RSS feed that has the content of this page about Braid. Here’s the result: Braid news.


First, we get the appid of Braid, which from the url is 26800. Then, we put the following query in YQL:
use '' as; select * from where appid='26800' which generates a URL that we then put into feed43.

Data extraction

Inside feed43, we’ll use the following simple extraction rule, which pulls out most of the important data:

Item format

Title: {%1}
Link: {%2}
Content: {%5} - {%3}<br/>{%4}<br/>
