I'm a programmer and I've made my own RSS / Atom feeds before for projects with hosting so I know the coding side.

But I don't have a server or hosting for my own long-term domain and I don't intend to get one.

I'm wondering if there is a free online webapp that lets users build RSS feeds that they then host / publish.

I know there are some which automatically create a feed from any changing web page, but I want something that allows me to build the logic, either by writing arbitrary code in some programming language, or by providing sufficiently sophisticated tools.

I intend to create feed posts from information I put together from consuming web APIs, scraping pages, etc.

Hi close-voters. On the other SE sites I'm active on it's encouraged to leave some constructive criticism when voting down or to close. If it's also encouraged here I'm interested in learning how to use the site better but currently can't see a fault in my question. – hippietrail Nov 21 '12 at 4:32
You could also use windowsazure.com free hosting at the moment. - The other option: make a Google Doc Spreadsheet -> File -> Publish -> RSS option appears. - The last option is make a facebook page and use the RSS option of the page. – David d C e Freitas Dec 4 '13 at 1:16

Try Yahoo Pipes. It has tools for fetching data from web APIs and scraping pages, processing the data in many ways, and it can output RSS feeds.

In fact I knew about this tool but didn't know it could make feeds. I did get a feed working but the tool is so hard to learn that my feed currently has just a single word in it! I couldn't work out how to add other important fields like the link. If anyone's interested I made a feed for the latest version of jQuery: Pipes page, RSS feed – hippietrail Nov 21 '12 at 4:36

You could build it on Google App Engine if you are ok with creating some software yourself.
