Is there an RSS feed like https://serverfault.com/feeds/user/2561 but for answers only, for a specified user?

  • You could probably do something with IFTTT. Use the feed channel with the "New feed item matches" trigger. (I'd search by "Answer by {your display name}". Then use whatever channel matches the best way to get it on to your blog. (There are channels for WordPress, Blogger, Medium, Tumblr, and Weebly.) – ale Nov 30 '16 at 15:22

Currently, no.

But, if you really want to stalk somebody, don't you want to know everything that they do?

    It would be for myself, put the feed on my blog. – Kyle Brandt Aug 13 '09 at 13:00

There is now. I have created an application called Stack2RSS that converts API requests into RSS feeds.

A feed that fetches all of a user's answers looks something like this:

http://stack2rss.quickmediasolutions.com/2.2/users/{id}/answers?site={site}

Example that fetches all of the answers posted by user #1 (Jeff Atwood) on SuperUser:

http://stack2rss.quickmediasolutions.com/2.2/users/1/answers?site=superuser

  • +1 that's an awesome app! Is there a reason why these RSS feeds can't seem to work in the chatroom feeds? – Mathieu Guindon Jan 28 '14 at 0:49

    Application has now been moved to stack2rss.quickmediasolutions.com. Links updated (once they come through moderation). – Tim Perry Nov 30 '16 at 14:46

Parse their answer-source:

https://meta.stackoverflow.com/api/useranswers.html?userid=130154&page=1&pagesize=10&sort=recent

That will show you their most recent 10. Change pagesize to increase count.

-3

Next best thing/workaround is to bookmark the user's recent tab and refresh every now and then. Now you'll not only be able to see their movements on answering questions, but when they comment and if they edit a post as well.
