The Module Reference describes each module and details what type of data each can process and emit. The list below describes the data types in greater detail.
Data sources (like the Fetch Feed or Yahoo! Search modules) output items. Items are lists of structured data. For an RSS feed, this data will include title, description, link, and pubDate. For Google Base, data may include a list of items containing category, location, description, and expiration date.
Items are the basic building blocks of Pipes.
Note: This data type was called rss in earlier versions of Yahoo! Pipes.
Location data can provide these fields:
How many of these fields are available to you depends on the accuracy of the location you provide. The quality field is an indication of the accuracy of the location provided. A specific street address will often have a quality in the 80s or higher. Providing just a city name, like "London", returns a quality of about 40, and providing just a country name, like "Portugal", yields a quality of only 10.
The datetime datatype represents a date and time and includes these fields:
The values above represent the date and time "8/29/2007 4:28PM EDT". The utime displays the number of seconds elapsed since January 1, 1970. This is useful for computing time differences.
day_of_week ranges from 1 (Monday) to 7 (Sunday).
