CocoaDev Recent Changes Feed
is my favourite
discussion board when it comes to programming, and Cocoa in
particular. Too bad it doesn't have an RSS-feed for the recent
changes page (which I reload manually once every ten minutes or
so when I'm bored).
Not so anymore! Thanks to my boredom I have now gotten around to
fixing the problem. I have a hacked a small script that takes
page and turns it into a news feed. Available in RSS 1.0 or Atom 0.3
it should suit most tastes.
If you want the fulltext version of the feed, which includes the whole page as the description of
the item, you can add
to the URL.
Suggestions, citicism, praise
There seems to be some trouble with NetNewsWire, and I have no idea why. If
anyone has a clue, post it one the suggestions page (link above).
The NetNewsWire problem seems to have been fixed by adding the time stamp to the
title of the item.
I've implemented a few cache-tricks on the feed now, it will reply with
HTTP 304 Not Modified if the feed has not been updated for readers that support
this. Hopefully it will do some good. Haven't had any complaints yet, but I
get quite a few hits, and wasting bandwith is just stupid. The hits on this feed
swamps my statistics, by two orders of magnitude.
