Template description

What is it

This workflow aims to build a simple bot that will send a message to a telegram channel every time there is a new saved item to the Reader.

This workflow can be easily modify to support other way of sending the notification, thanks to existing n8n nodes.

Warning: This is only for folks who already have access to the Reader, it won't work if you don't

Also, this workflow use a file to store the last update time in order to not sync everything everytime.


The config node :

  • It contains the telegram channel id
  • It also contains the file used as storage

To get the header auth, you have to :

  1. Go to the reader
  2. Open the devtools, Option + ⌘ + J (on macOS), or Shift + CTRL + J (on Windows/Linux)
  3. Go to network and find a profile_details/ request, click on it
  4. Go to Request Headers
  5. Copy the value for "Cookie"
  6. In n8n, set the name of the Header auth account to Cookie and the value with the one you copied before
