  • I read all journal entries from my terminal using my journal reader script []. It connects to use.perl through its SOAP interface, then outputs the entries according to a template. It shouldn't be too hard to translate that into a template to do an RSS feed.
    • Thanks, I'll give that a try. It just bugs me that the site doesn't provide it by default...

      I know, I know. "patches welcome" :-)


  • You can turn most list pages on use Perl into feeds using the content_format query parameter, including a feed of the generic journal search []. That gives you a feed with everyone’s posts, and each item links through to the specific post in question, though there’s no fulltext. Despite the last point, I find it helps enough to make reading along tolerable.

  • I've been wanting this feature as well, and I know of numerous other people who do too. However the site admins don't have a desire to support it.
    • More than likely, it's simply because the feature isn't applicable to slashdot, which is what the codebase is aimed at. I certainly wouldn't call the oversight malicious in any way...
