yahoopipes.pngPipes is a free online service that lets you remix popular feed types and create data mashups using a visual editor. You can use Pipes to run your own web projects, or publish and share your own web services without ever having to write a line of code.

The Product name is taken from Unix environment. Unix Pipes is used for datatransfer between applications, whereas yahoo pipes is used for datatransfer between webservices.

Yahoo! Pipes allows you to take data from one or more sources, remix the content, then publish to the world.

The Simplicity of the application helps the non technical user to take any sources, user input requests or pre-configured modules and drag+drop them into place and then connect the pipes. However user needs to know the terminology they use & they should be familiar of the pre-defined modules of Yahoo Pipes. Complete list of Pipes module can be found here.

How to Create a Pipe

Each Pipe consists of two or more modules, each of which performs a single, specific task.

Each module has one or more terminals, represented by small circles in the interface. You can wire modules together by clicking on one module’s output terminal and another module’s input terminal. Now the output from the first module will serve as input to the second module.

In addition to data feeds, Pipes also lets you add user input fields into your Pipe. These show up at runtime as form fields that users of your Pipe can fill in.

Once you have built your pipe, you can save it on yahoo server and then call it like you would any other feed. Yahoo Pipes supports RSS, RDF, JSON and Atom formats

The tutorial of Yahoo Pipes is still missing…I guess it will be updated soon..
