I’m also not surprised Yahoo Pipes is closing down.
Out of all my uses for Yahoo Pipes I think the key ones I have to work out how to move over somewhere else are the feeds that go into my library jobs, Surrey Mix, Hot Poppi apps and also the combined feed of the library blogs.
Most of this information is centred around combining RSS feeds, filtering them and generating an RSS output.
I might be able to do this with one of the IFTTT alternatives I posted about a while ago, or maybe I’ll actually just end up doing some programming myself to resolve it.
I’ve seen a couple of suggestions for a replacement for Yahoo Pipes, but it looks like they involve some programming themselves and fiddly setups. If that’s the case I’d rather stick to the programming tools I already know and resolve it that way.
