XML-RSS-JavaScript

[ #15021 ]

Inkdroid was asking about some code i had written to output RSS feeds as JavaScript. We talked about it a bit and decided it was a worthwhile thing to fix up and release to CPAN.

...and here it is!

It's highly style-able, and we've include a couple examples with the distribution. I must say though, that IE6/Win does some funky stuff to lists. :/

It's been fun having working together on the code, through CVS. I don't get to do that, generally. I hope to get the chance to work this way again in the near future.

  • Another trick is to use XML CSS [interglacial.com]! Not quite as friendly tho. Altho if I were fancy, I'd go learn XSL and do it up better.
    • Neat. The particular itch we were trying to scratch was to allow people with only knowledge of HTML/CSS to easily incorporate syndicated content into their website.

      The styles packaged with the distro were mostly pulled from listomatic [maxdesign.com.au]), and are a demo'd here [inkdroid.org].
