Knitter net

Thursday, June 15th, 2006

I’ve been doing a bit of development on this site lately. A little bit of knitting, but certainly more developing. I finished writing a script today that lets me track my favourite blog posts with the click of a button. Based on the recency and frequency of posts I deem awesome, the script produces a custom feed of my favourite blogs. While doing this, I learned:

  • How to deal with date and time functions in PHP
  • How to generate an RSS feed
  • How to make bookmarklets
  • I have too much time on my hands.

Just FYI, I only recently implemented this and barely any times have been recorded, so don’t be offended if you have a zero next to your blog.

  3. [...] I set up a little code snippet on my server that lets me mark blog posts that I find interesting and publish a feed of my favourite blogs. I’ve been wanting to integrate this with an RSS aggregator so I could preferentially check out the blogs that are most likely to post something I’m interested in, but I couldn’t find a way to do that without writing my own aggregator. Most online readers (and I wanted an online reader so I could maintain the read/unread status of posts across the four different computers I use) will let you import OPML but won’t let you include dynamic information (like ratings and such). So I had no idea what to do until I found reBlog. [...]
