On Hacker News I have always wanted a way to stay up-to-date with people who make really insightful comments.

There's a lot of great stuff out there—but it's hard to keep up with it all. This is actually a perfect use-case for RSS: high-quality content that's not updated very frequently.

Unfortunately, Hacker News doesn't support RSS for comments out of the box.

So, with some help from the official Hacker News Search API and Yahoo! Pipes, I strung together an RSS feed that pulls in the latest comments from any user.

Replace USERNAME in the URL above with any valid Hacker News username, and you will receive an RSS feed of their 50 most recent comments.

Want these in your inbox instead? Try this IFTTT recipe. Want all comment feeds merged into one? Try this Yahoo! Pipes recipe.
