rssCloud developments

Friday, July 24, 2009 by Dave Winer.

Yesterday I posted the Implementor's Guide. It walks a coder through the components of rssCloud -- the authoring tool, cloud, and aggregator. Permalink to this paragraph

I also released the source code for my implementation of the cloud. My aggregator, River2, was updated to support the cloud. I have not released my authoring tool yet. Permalink to this paragraph

I started a FriendFeed group to facilitate communication among implementors. Permalink to this paragraph

A feed that will help you test, if you're developing an aggregator. It updates every 15 minutes, notifies the cloud server, which in turn will notify any registered subscribers.  Permalink to this paragraph

My personal "LifeLiner" feed is also available for testing. I wouldn't recommend subscribing in a feed reader like NetNewsWire or Google Reader. It's designed for the loosely coupled 140-character network. For which there aren't any readers. Yet! (Gotta start somewhere..) Permalink to this paragraph

Meetup in NYC next Thurs. Permalink to this paragraph

Anil Dash has written an excellent white paper on recent developments in the realtime or "pushbutton" web, including of course rssCloud. Permalink to this paragraph
