Channel hooks

Channel hooks Channel hooks are a powerful feature of Awasu that transform it from being just another feed reader into something much more profound.

Like plugins, they are small programs or scripts that get run by Awasu but while plugins are used to generate feeds, hooks are run when certain things happen e.g. when a channel is updated or new items are received. In other words, they hook into the flow of information within a channel.

Why is this so important? Browsers such as Internet Explorer or Firefox and every other feed reader available today are passive tools; they simply display the data as it arrives without understanding anything about what they are showing. Channel hooks let you monitor the information, analyze it and then respond to it.
