New RSS Junk

Website115 words1 minutes to read

After two days of using the Fase4 RDF Parser, I decided to move to the Magpie RSS Parser. This one is much easier to use and implement, and it handles both the simpler RSS 0.9x/2.0 (Really Simple Syndication) format, as well as the RDF-based RSS 1.0 (RDF Site Summary) format.

I also messed around with Onyx RSS, ProjectNeo™, and the Aggreg8 parsers. Magpie RSS Parser is just plain better.

I’ve also added an RSS/RDF Feed section, so that you can checkout/get other feeds from other sites. And if you’re one of the few people who targeted my RSS feed already, I’ve changed the URL from “skyzyx.xml” to “index.xml”. It just made more sense that way.
