I'll ask our resident tweaker David Wood if he could develop a perl script that parses the news headline file when we update it and create a converted XML formatted file.

Our news headline file is "included" into the index page dynamically and contains the following HTML:

To convert it to XML, like the link you gave me at Slashdot, should be straighforward.


I'll PM David and ask for his input in this thread.

I think this is possible. I made a mini news reading script and web clipping for the palm pilot a couple of years ago. It displayed a simple list of headlines and one story at a time when you clicked on it. This would be a similar concept. If I can find my old code ill adapt it to generate xml. I'd rather it be a seperate little app than adding even more if-then-else logic to news publisher :)

flynn 03-03-03 12:21 PM

sweet! looking forward to this...

DaveW 03-04-03 04:36 PM

flynn, you are our beta tester. Try this


flynn 03-05-03 01:58 PM

works great! thanks!

but i have some bad news... i did some more digging and found an existing feed on syndic8.com...


i'll use your feed instead though : )

ragejg 03-05-03 02:13 PM

I want an RSS feed!! I have to settle for overclocked cafe news for now (on AvantGo)... but I just got this done, and now my Handspring Treo 90 is even MORE useful... I use Fireviewer converter to convert the nvnews front page every 2 days or so, but it'd be great if you guys had an avantGo extended RSS...

...or some other way to put nvnews stuff on my PDA... Wish I could put the forums on my 64mb SD card daily... I don't store much on it YET.


flynn 03-14-03 05:34 PM

oops, you have your first break:

The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.


Whitespace is not allowed at this location. Error processing resource 'http://www.nvnews.net/cgi-bin/rss.cgi'. Line 19, Position 23

<title>DX9, Longhorn & More</title>

Chars like & need to be escaped. You can solve this by surrounding title's with CDATA sections...

flynn 05-07-03 02:33 PM

thx for the fix : )

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 07:59 PM.
