How to configure RSS Bot without a client

If you've always wanted to know how Scalar works behind the scenes, here's a demo where I configure RSS bot via Scalar, using matrix-client-core. We are abusing the test client here to set everything up for us.

Now matrix-client-core has been set up with urllib-request-adapter so you can see what's happening. When using requests itself, you can skip the debug bit.

Big thanks to TravisR for assistance and doing the research on Scalar.

$ /bin/sh testclient.sh -i -d
