I just added a small feature to our RSS to JS demo, the site that demonstrates a bone-simple (even humans can do this with their bare hands) way to take a known RSS feed and have it displayed inside any web page.
Here is what the new form looks like:
So here is how it works. Take any old RSS feed just laying around and paste it into the form. Select the display options that we offer to show/hide channel details, items details, posting date, number of entries...
Then you have two things to play with. The first is a preview of how the feed will appear in your own pages and the other is a page that will generate the HTML code you need to copy/paste to your own pages to bring it on home.
Now that is simple. It might take Stephen only a mouse and half a cup of coffee to work it through ;-)blogged July 31, 2003 10:29 AM :: category [ rss ]
