 Are there any ready to use compounds to do such a job?

For Find Files there's no ready made compound, but it's fairly simple to use.

You simply specify a folder and a file mask, for example:

     

By default you'll have the full list of the *.txt files in the folder.

But if you set Line Count to 1 then via Start Line Index you can control which filename you get from the list:

    

With this single filename you can drive a Text File module to get the content of the selected file:

Regarding the RSS.

In one of the next releases we will provide a HTTP Request module. Using that you'll be able to fetch an RSS feed manually or periodically.

The downloaded RSS itself is an XML content which can be handled via the XML Text module. We'll provide some examples how to access RSS data from that.

Note that you'll only able to handle the plain text content.
RSS files often contains HTML content as well. You'll have the HTML text itself, but you won't be able to display it directly since Aximmetry do not have a built-in HTML viewer.

I have Folder with number of text files that change dynamically so the number and the content of txt files is always changing.

How I can use this type of source in Aximmetry to create news ticker?

Please install the new 2019.6.1. version.
Text File module is now capable of loading multiple files merged together.
Combined with the Find Files module you can achieve your request.

As I mentioned earlier Aximmetry do not have a built-in HTML viewer.
So unfortunately you cannot display the html correctly.

Thank you

I think this is now working but I have a problem, which is when I update same TXT files content the Crawl show only first content and not updating to new one.

I have tried to click on clear or restart in Text_Crawl module but it didn't update also i have clicked on refresh on Find Files module but it didnt update.

I am using Crawl_TextFile.xcomp with  Find Files module text as input

We've found a possible reason, you probably placed your text files somewhere outside the Projects folder.

We'll fix this issue in the next release.

Until then a possible workaround for you is to place the texts under one of your project folders.
