Sometimes you just have to stop whining...

[ #11485 ]

Sometimes you just have to stop whining, and write some code. I was spending far too much time and energy telling everyone that I didn't understand any of this RDF and RSS stuff, so I spent the weekend stealing other people's code and writing an RSS plugin for CGI::Wiki (see it in action on my grubstreet clone). Of course I still don't know what I'm doing, since XML::RSS is doing all the actual work, but at least I'm doing it.

My to-do list now has a home in cyberspace, appropriately enough on a wiki. The thing I will probably spend most of my next few spare evenings on is carrying on with the ChefMoz stuff that I'm doing in collaboration with danbri.

  • I checked out your ToDo list implenented as a wiki and that's just what I needed. We also run Twiki within our org, but I wanted something personal and private and fast and the UseMod [usemod.com] wiki code looks like the ticket. I grabbed 0xff's CSS file too, because I'm lame-o.

      Excellent! I highly recommend UseMod as a quick and simple way to get a wiki running. Oh, and I love the formatting conventions; powerful yet simple. I was satisfied with it for ages, until I wanted to hack on it; I find the code very ha

      • might poke dngor about usemod. poe.perl.org runs on a very hacked version of usemod that is much easier to use. and did i mention that its template driven? :)

        i do believe its in poe's cvs repository on sf.net if you're interested.
