If you’re like me, you probably like to ensure that your software is up-to-date on your system at all times. I’m a heavy user of the Microsoft Azure PowerShell automation module, which is actively developed on a GitHub source code repository. I need to make sure that I am promptly notified about updates to this GitHub project.
GitHub doesn’t seem to offer a method of subscribing to e-mail updates for project releases, so I had to turn to another solution.
The nice thing about GitHub is that it does at least offer a RSS feed of releases. There is a free service available called BlogTrottr, which will take a RSS Feed as input, and send you e-mail updates when a new item is detected in the feed. For example, if you want to follow a blog, you might plug in the blog’s RSS URL and it will automatically send you an e-mail when there’s a new feed item.
