RDF Fetcher

[ #4328 ]
I really have not done much on this app except add more entries in the default .conf for more sites. I need to get working on this again so I can get it out there.

This is what I have gotten done so far:

fetch sites based on minutes of the hour (runs every 5 minutes from cron).

downloads the file to a temp file, and it download is successful copies it over to the spool directory to the correct filename.

will override the schedule and fetch on the next pass any names in the override directory.

debian .deb file of the app.

What I need to work on:

admin tool to add/remove/active/deactive sites

man/documentation

.tar.gz of app

make the debian .deb lintian clean.

website that has the .deb/.tar.gz and basic info on it.

that is it. hopefully I can knock the list down soon so I can get the beta out there.

  • A lot of people talk about RDF when they mean RSS. RDF is the resource description framework, and is a system for tagging meaning to URIs. RSS is a technology built using some of the ideas, for syndicating headlines.

    Anyway, if it's RSS you're downloading, you might be interested in my rssmirror [axkit.org] script, which does all the stuff you've suggested and more.
