One of the problems with Yahoo Pipes or IFTTT is that they can turn it off whenever they feel like it - this is what happened to people using IFTTT with twitter recently. To replace these online services, Wired writes of Huginn, "a system for building agents that perform automated tasks for you online. They can read the web, watch for events, and take actions on your behalf. Huginn's Agents create and consume events, propagating events along a directed event flow graph." This is a bit of what gRSShopper does as well, though it looks to me like Huginn is much more fully developed. Huginn is built on Ruby on Rails. #indieweb
