Collect my recent toots in an Org file so that I can refile them

| emacs, mastodon, org

I want to use my microblog posts on Mastodon as building blocks for longer posts on my blog. Getting them into an Org file makes it easier to link to them or refile them to other parts of my Org files so that I can build up my notes.

(use-package pandoc)
(defun my-mastodon-org-feed-formatter (entry)
  (concat "* " (pandoc-convert-stdio
                (dom-text (dom-by-tag
                             (insert "<item>"
                                     (plist-get entry :item-full-text)
                             (xml-parse-region (point-min) (point-max)))
                "html" "org")
          "\n\n[" (format-time-string (cdr org-time-stamp-formats)
                                      (date-to-time (plist-get entry :pubDate)))
"]\n" (plist-get entry :link)))
(setq org-feed-alist '(("Mastodon" ""
                        "~/sync/orgzly/" "Toots"
                        :formatter my-mastodon-org-feed-formatter)))
(defun my-org-feed-sort (pos entries)
    (goto-char pos)
    (when (looking-at org-complex-heading-regexp)
      (org-sort-entries nil ?T))))
(advice-add #'org-feed-add-items :after #'my-org-feed-sort)

Now I can use org-feed-update-all (C-c C-x g) to pull things into my file.

This is part of my Emacs configuration.
