RSS Journal feed

[ #3366 ]

I'm a total addict of reading the journals here at use.perl. But coming to the site, and opening 20 windows to read the latest journal entries does get a bit boring (not to mention hard on the system). What I'd love to be able to do is to subscribe to 1 RSS channel that would list all of the recent journal entries. But even though I'm a pretty smart guy, I can't figure out how to do that. What's worse, I think the existing feed might work, except that I don't know how to add people to my friends list.

Any suggestions?

  • While viewing the person's journal who you want to add to your friends list, click on the little guy wearing sunglasses. You'll be prompted if you're sure, then you're done.
    • I wonder if that's really the way forward. Imagine, if you will, begin able to access use.perl with something like:

      nntp://use.perl.org/journals.Matts
      nntp://use.perl.org/stories

      With each journal entry/story being the head article in a thread of comments. It should just be a simple matter of programming...
      • I recall hearing a long time ago there was an effort to make use.perl accessible via NNTP. Wonder if that ever happened?

        It's reasonably easy to do (just hack NNML a bit, and you're done), I did it for O'Reilly's WebBoard, and it works damn well.
        • There's nothing for it yet. Patches welcome! Although, please discuss it with me first so we can sync up on how best to do it. :-) The short answer, though, is that it'd be neat, but I can't spend time on it, and neither can my coworkers, at this time.
  • There are two RSS feeds.

    http://use.perl.org/journal.pl?op=top&content_type=rss [perl.org]

    http://use.perl.org/search.pl?op=journals&content_type=rss [perl.org]

    The journal.pl one gives the most recent journal users. The search.pl one gives the most recent journals themselves.

    The search.pl one is also broken right now (wrong URLs), though it has been fixed in CVS, and the corrected code will go live on the next code refresh (next week?).

    Note that removing "&content_type=rss" from each gives you the same thing,
