More random code

2006-05-25

Forgot to mention in the other post... As I was waiting for the Summer of Code acceptance to be announce, I wrote a few small scripts to generate a page that looks like a newspaper using content from RSS feeds. It has quickly become my favorite way to read the news. I've posted a tarball of the source and support files for generating such a page. You need to have feedparser installed and of python 2.4.

Edit the feeds list at the top of newspaper.py (or read my feeds) and run ./buildpaper.sh. When it has finished, you should have a shiny new news.html. Just open it in the nearest web browser and enjoy. The titles of all of the articles are linked to their sources and everything is sorted by date, starting with the most recent in the top left, articles following down the page.
