Take that, Safari RSS

Tinkering with Atom: (where “Atom” means “Atom and RSS in various flavors”) the start of a PHP workalike of the Universal Feed Parser. Nice! (Now I’ll not only keep forgetting who “a work in progress” is, I’ll also forget and get confused about “a work in process”)

Thanks for the enthusiasm. I haven’t had a chance to work on it for a few weeks, but hope to get back to it soon. My main reason for writing this is that I want to get working on some Atom API implementation work, and need a good parser to do that. And then once I was writing that, I thought a universal parser might be a better use of time.

btw, the blog is called ”a work on process”. My name is in all the relevant places in the feeds.

OK, Phil, you’ve completely baffled me with this post’s title.

A fair number of people blame Safari RSS, at least in part, for popularizing the use of ”RSS” as a generic for ”feed” – when they announced it, they said it would support all flavors of RSS including Atom.

Well c’mon, I’m an Atom head, and even I knew that was inevitable…
