  • We can now subscribe to Bluesky feeds in FeedLand --#
    • In the Subscribe sub-menu, choose To one feed.#
    • Enter the URL of a Bluesky profile page. For example, here's a link to Neil Gaiman's profile. #
    • Click OK.#
  • When this feature came out yesterday it didn't work with FeedLand because we were looking for full URLs pointing to a feed in their feed discovery link and they provided a relative URL.#
  • The fix was in the feedHunter package, it now looks for relative URLs and makes them full before trying to find the feed. #
  • I think I understand why they used a relative URL, they're getting ready to federate and it's probably simpler for them to just specify a relative URL.#
  • On the other hand, I think this is going to be a problem -- in the world of feeds, software usually expects full URLs. #
  • PS: This is what a Bluesky feed looks like in FeedLand on Day 1.#

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! :-)
