Louis Kessler’s Behold Blog » Blog Entry           prev Prev   Next next

Saturday, June 19, 2004 - Sat, 19 Jun 2004

Spent a couple of days looking into how to convert my blog into a feed. There are two types of formats: RSS and Atom. RSS is the original format and is supported by Yahoo, whereas Atom is the newer more powerful format, supported by Google. I could get a content management tool, like Blogger, to maintain my blog and produce my feed. But I really like my current setup and don’t want the hassles of switching. The alternative is to find a “scraper” tool, to convert my Html into XML in either RSS or Atom format. Well, all the scraper tools are either online tools or written in some scripting language (like PHP) which requires your own server to run on. The format is not too difficult. I could write my own one, but that would just deflect me away from my real goal of getting Behold out.
