What was the issue(s)?
Streemian RSS services went down recently and @techslut asked me to help her find an alternative. We found out this repo which was last commited to half a year ago and the RSS service wasn't functional at all, it returned an internal server error at all times.
Describe briefly how you fixed the issue(s).
I fixed async related bugs and some typos in variable names which made those errors. For example see
tag.jschanges in which I changed typos like
Most of the asynchronous code in
tag.js wasn't working at all, logically. So I used
promisifyin order to modernize some of the steem api methods to promises.
I also updated the steem api package and used the new steem api node instead of steemd node. Since it became unavailable on January 6th. So no "connection closed" errors come up from a websocket steem node.
I also deployed it to heroku in: https://techslut-rss.herokuapp.com
So its functional and usable for everyone.
The new landing page - dedicated to @techslut
All Rss feeds are now operational and not returning server error.
In order to see the URLs for the feeds you should look in the README file here and use the techslut-rss.herokuapp.com URL instead of the steemrss one.
