How to automatically publish your DevDojo posts to DEV.to?

Introduction

In case that you are posting content on DevDojo or if you are using the DevBlog feature on the DevDojo site, you might want to cross-post your content on other platforms like DEV.to.

Having to do this manually would be a time consuming and intimidating job.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to push your DevDojo posts to DEV.to automatically!

Prerequisits

Before you get started, you would need to have the following:

DEV configuration

The DEV.to platform allows you to Publishing to DEV Community from an RSS feed. You get a personal RSS feed for your DevDojo account without having to do any configuration.

Each user can access their RSS feed by visiting devdojo.com/feed/USER_NAME. For example, my RSS feed URL is:

https://devdojo.com/feed/bobbyiliev
