Subject: ANN: lambdaFeed 0.2.0 "Lambdas for all!"
Date: Tuesday 9th May 2006 03:43:57 UTC (over 12 years ago)
This is to announce a new Haskell application: lambdaFeed is an RSS 2.0 feed generator. It reads news items - in a non-XML, human-friendly format - distributed over multiple channels and renders them into the RSS 2.0 XML format understood by most news aggregators as well as into HTML for inclusion into web pages. This is a very early version of the tool; hence, many desirable features are missing. However, the internal representation of RSS 2.0 feeds is already rather feature-full, including enclosure, as needed for podcats. A major shortcoming right now is that the generated HTML is quite simple, and in particular, a nice style-sheet is missing. Source is available in darcs. Check it out at http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~chak/haskell/lambdaFeed/ Manuel PS: The code is very hackable. Plain H98 throughout.
