gof is a command-line utility to post RSS/Atom feeds to the fediverse. It has first-class support for Pleroma, and thus should support Mastodon, too...

gof is for "go feediverse", "go fediverse", "go fedi", or really whatever you want. gof is a port of feediverse written in Go.

gof supports multiple feeds and multiple accounts.


Before you can start using gof, you'll need to configure it. An example configuration can be found here. You can also just copy the example:

$ cd $REPO
$ cp config.yaml.example config.yaml
$ vim config.yaml # don't forget to edit it!

You'll need an access token as well. The configuration will be saved in $REPO/gof.yaml:

$ go build
$ ./gof

Once gof is configured, you might want to add it to your crontab:

*/30 * * * * cd /path/to/$REPO; gof

#post format

You can specify how the message looks. The variables you have to work with are URL, Title, and Summary. You don't have to use all variables.

TODO: Summary isn't implemented yet.

An example template:

template: '{{.Title}}: {{.URL}}'

If you want the message to include line breaks, use YAML's multiline syntax:

template: |-



Additional documentation can be found in gof's wiki.
