Convert your RSS Feeds to OPML.


I needed a tool to convert all my RSS Feeds from RSSBandit to NewsGator format. I couldn't find anything pre-built, so I wrote this really really really simple conversion program.

This is a very small tool that will convert your RSSBandit news feeds to OPML format. OPML is used by more RSS Readers like SharpReader and NewsGator.


  • Export your feeds from RSSBandit.
  • At the cmd prompt, type:
    RSSConvert "<input path>" "<output path>"
  • Import them to the new program.


RSSConvert "c:\rss\feeds.xml" "c:\rss\feeds.opml"

C# source included. This tool uses the .NET Framework.

I started programming for fun when I was about 10 on an Franklin Ace 1000.

I still do it just for fun but it has gotten me a few jobs over the years. More then I can say for my Microsoft Certifications. Smile | :)

The way I learned was by example, now its time to give back to the next generation of coders.

I didn't exen see that option in the export function. oh well Smile | :)

Maybe a better idea would be in the UI have it as a menuItem under the File->Export menu?
