Improving Feed Formats Support

Friday, June 30th, 2006

From the suggestions of a few users, and my own desire to improve the functionality of FeedBlendr, I’m hoping to increase the number of feed formats/variants/dialects supported in the near future. At the moment, the way that FeedBlendr works means that it only supports (or rather only outputs) pretty bare-bones feeds. This means it almost always works, but it also precludes it from doing really cool things like creating belnded podcasts or vlog feeds amongst other things.

I’m going to be working from Niall Kennedy’s list of feed specs, and hope to ensure support for these formats (and possibly more if I can figure out a reliable way to open up the elements I pass through):

If there are any other specific formats that you’d like to see FeedBlendr support, please use the comments to let me know!

FeedBlendr… Not Relocating Anywhere

Change of plans!

Thanks to a new policy at DreamHost, there’s no immediate need to relocate, so FeedBlendr will be staying right where it is for now.

I’m hoping to get a bit of a chance to do some refactoring and what-not in the near future though, which will make blendr a little more flexible, and a little more standards compliant :-)
