Making Yahoo Pipes work for you
I have been working with Yahoo Pipes some more to get my sorting criteria more defined. Usually two things happen, 1 you get too many results or 2, you get too little or not enough of what you expected. It is time to thing like the search engines or define your searches using pipes to get the results.
Pipes has this nice feature called debugger that is in the bottom right of your pipes screen. It lets you select different modules in your pipe to see what the output is at that module. Start at the first module and see your output. Here you should lots of results. Keep adding modules and defining ‘joins’ and ‘uniques’ until you get the expected output.
Don’t stop, keep experimenting.
Keep checking the debugger at each module as you work through designing and refining your pipe.
