RSS and New Google Sites - Can this be used

I am researching RSS to be able to and daily scripture audio and video feeds.  I can provide the link and change it daily, but if I can figure out RSS AND if New Google Sites allows it now, then it would really simplify the process.

Was there a gadget in the Old Google Sites that would incorporate this?  And is this being considered for New Google Sites?

Thank You,
Phil

Gadgets are not a feature in new Sites but you could make your own code in a Google Apps Script Web App to read an RSS feed and display what you want.

If you mean the reverse, new Sites providing an RSS feed to other services to use, this is not available and never will be at a guess.

Thank you.  I meant the first where it reads an RSS feed and display content I want.  I will check Google Apps Script Web App.

Here's a sample apps script on how to parse an RSS feed. This example then inserts it into a Google Sheet so you'll want to alter the script to display HTML  via the HTML Service instead.

Thank you.  How are the scripts embedded, loaded, etc. into New Google Sites?

Here are a couple of steps that may help:
  1. Make your code in a simple Web App in Google Apps Script (https://developers.google.com/apps-script/guides/web) and publish.
  2. Embed in your new Google Site (https://horizon.steegle.com/google-sites/iframes)
If you've never scripted before you may want to get a developer (we can develop the script for you for a fee).
