How to Get Joystiq’s Full Text RSS Feed

December 19th, 2013 by Tommy Gun

Joystiq recently switched their RSS feed to a truncated version, which means you only see the first couple sentences, and then you need to click to see the rest. This is super annoying and takes way longer if you just want to skim through the articles. It kind of defeats the whole purpose of an RSS feed, in fact. There are services you can use to get the full text version of any feed, but they either cost money, or they’re limited to 5-10 items at a time, which means you’ll miss a lot of posts. Plus, they don’t refresh right away.

I found a Yahoo Pipe someone created to fix Joystiq’s feed, but it was outdated. I’ve updated it for Dec 2013, which you can view here, and even modify if you need to:

This is the RSS link, or you can go to the above page for more links. So far it works perfectly, and updates at the same rate as the real Joystiq feed (I have them running side-by-side as a test).
