RSS to PDF - Email your RSS FEED to your subscribers In a PDF Format using Tabloid

One of my www.devcurry.com visitors Dewel, mailed me asking if the RSS feed of this site could be delivered to his email in a PDF format. I found the request interesting!

On investigating, I came across a tool called Tabloid (http://www.tabbloid.com). Tabloid is a free service from Hewlett Packard which turns your feeds into PDF. You also have the option to schedule the pdf to be delivered to the email addresses you have chosen.

Enter your RSS feed in the textbox given and click on ‘Generate Sample Issue’ now (at the bottom) to view how the PDF will appear.

The PDF generated is pretty good. It was not able to format the code snippet too well, but did well for images as well as Text. The layout generated was similar to a magazine format. Here’s a sample of what got generated.

So go ahead and try it out!
