I wish Newsblur would use the Patreon API to simulate a Patreon RSS feed.

It would be wonderful if I could make a "Patreon feed" appear as if it was an RSS feed in newsblur.

There *technically* is an API https://github.com/oxguy3/patreon-api but.... it's not great.

For this feature, the process would be:

Enter credentials (I'd prefer oauth) -> create folder with list of content creators and unique feeds, with a "hey, this is a patreon reward, you probably shouldn't share it" advisory on rewards.

::sigh:: Oh well.

Implementing custom APIs is a lot of work. And they tend to be very finicky and break often. That's to say nothing of rate limits. This is unlikely, since they could easily add RSS feeds.
