Web 2.0 Rss Reader

00:00 Comments (0) Back to journal

After playing around with the Javascript xmlHttpRequest object and some backend ASP ServerXMLObject requests, I have ended up with a very ropey version of an RSS reader that runs entirely from a single page with no re-loads. Its no NetNewsWire, but its a start...

Feel free to view the Javascript used and thanks to Sitepoint for their excellent tutorials and especially their makeRequest.js file which makes all of this possible.

You can view the results here. Unfortunately, it doesnt degrade well in Internet Explorer (scrollbars) and I couldnt really be bothered to fix it at this time, perhaps I will do some more work on it soon. Note that the local feed link will not work, this was something I used to test my scripts.
