interactive-feed (via) Sam Morris maintains this project which gathers interactive, graphic and data visualization stories from various newsrooms around the world and publishes them on Twitter, Mastodon and Bluesky.

It runs automatically using GitHub Actions, and gathers data using a number of different techniques - XML feeds, custom API integrations (for the NYT, Guardian and Washington Post) and in some cases by scraping index pages on news websites using CSS selectors and cheerio.

The data it collects is archived as JSON in the data/ directory of the repository.
