It's even worse than it appears..

  • Here's a link that opens in Drummer. It contains the package.json, a template file and the JS code that reads an RSS feed and produces an HTML rendering of the items in the feed after running the description text through sanitize-html with the p's removed. Once written it made it easy for me to try out a lot of different combinations for the options, but I settled on the simplest.#
  • It uses the reallySimple package to read the feed, and is thus a good demonstration of how easy that is.#
  • I usually would have done the work to put it into a GitHub repo, but this is a lot easier for me, because this is how I work on my code.#
  • If people can read the code in the outliner (you can!), that will make it possible for me to share a lot more code. :-)#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
