About this viewer:
The script running behind this is written in Rebol, a cool internet messaging language. You can peek at the main part of the code and if you are still interested in the whole source I will certainly give it to you. Please note that this stuff is still in beta.
Moved to new server with new domain forever.p3k.org.
Updated Rebol to version 2.5.5. End of Rebol's "DNS zombies" in the process list. Finally.
Added a very nice quote from Abbe Normal on top right of this document.
If you want a more compact view of the RSS box you can get it now using the corresponding checkbox. If it is enabled the descriptions of each item will not be displayed given that the item title is defined (otherwise there would not be much to see). Additionally, the channel image (if defined) will not be displayed. Thanks email@example.com for the suggestions!
Added icons for enclosure and source; added XML button checkbox to enable output of the quasi-standard orange button linking to the XML source (idea by firstname.lastname@example.org).
It's now possible to refine the style of the whole box using the newly implemented css classes .rssBoxTitle, .rssBoxContent, rssBoxItemTitle and rssBoxItemContent (idea by email@example.com).
Added a form input for limiting the item display. The number determines how many items will be shown in the box (seven is the default value). Good for often updated channels.
Detected a strange bug that prevented the viewer on jamby.net loading http://p3k.org/rss.xml while http://www.p3k.org/rss.xml was no problem at all. Upgrading the Rebol installation to the current version solved the problem, however the cause remains unclear...
Fixed a small bug that corrupted channel URLs containing a query (as reported by firstname.lastname@example.org).
Configured server redirect from piefke.helma.at/rss.
Thanks to Adam Curry, the viewer is now mirrored at http://publish.curry.com/rss.
Added link to source code; added example links for all supported formats.
Fixed a little bug reported by email@example.com that caused diacritic characters to be displayed as entity codes.
Option for limiting RSS items display. done.
Support for text input. done.
- User-friendly error detection.
- Support for PICS rating and day resp. hour skipping (no option since this is not a customizable harvester).
I will discontinue developing this viewer with Rebol, soon (but it will be available here as is). I am already testing a new prototype using Helma Object Publisher. I intend to implement future ideas (like user and FTP management) in there.
For questions and comments feel free to mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, p3k organisation!
