Manage and serve podcast RSS feeds locally
Pod Local Sync
This utility allows you to manage a podcast RSS feed locally and spin up a small server to sync it with podcast applications like macOS' Podcast.app.
I wrote this since in macOS Catalina (10.15), it is no longer possible to manually add local files to the app.
Python 3.8 is required.
pip install podlocalsync
podlocalsync works in the current directory and will automatically pick up
To start, you need an image for the feed in the current directory:
$ podlocalsync init Feed title: My Feed Using image myimage.png.
This will create
feed.toml, which stores the information about the feed.
Next, you can add episodes.
podlocalsync will look for
files. The publication date is also filled in from the file time.
$ podlocalsync add Episode audio: [episode-1.m4a]:  episode-1.m4a  episode-2.mp3  episode-3.m4a > Episode title: My Episode about Cats Episode publication date: [Fri, 31 Jul 2020 06:26:31 +0000]
If you've added an episode, it will be excluded from the next
Finally, you can serve the feed locally. This will create or overwrite
feed.rss and spin up a server:
$ podlocalsync serve http://localhost:8000/feed.rss ^C Keyboard interrupt received, exiting.
You can subscribe to this URL in a podcasting application, although the server isn't intended to be run for a long time, and certainly don't expose it to the internet.
If you want to subscribe from e.g. an iPhone, use your computer's IP address as the hostname (and make sure the firewall allows connections):
$ podlocalsync serve --host 192.168.1.136 http://192.168.1.136:8000/feed.rss
