How to export your data

  1. Log in to your account on https://overcast.fm
  2. Click "Account"

    • OPML: A list of your subscribed podcasts in XML format.
    • All data: OPML with playlists and episode data added.

IndieWeb Examples

  • Jonathan LaCour created a Python script that can log in to Overcast’s website, download the All Data OPML file and parse it to retrieve recently played episodes then, it uses an API for Known to create a listen post.
  • Eddie Hinkle created a Node.js script based on Jonathan LaCour’s that effectively does the same steps but creates a listen post using some experimental Micropub properties. Once the script is cleaned up, it will be linked here.
    • Eddie runs his script once a day at 1am that looks over the OPML file for listens from the last 24 hours.
    • Also Eddie has been thinking of using the OPML file to create follow posts on his site by looking for new Podcast subscriptions within the OPML file.
