10 Days to PulpFiction 1.2: Day 4

pulp_fiction.jpgOn January 20*, we'll be releasing PulpFiction 1.2. On each of the next ten days, I'll be discussing a new feature we've added to my favorite aggregator.

Today's feature is one I've used several times myself: we've added support for local feeds. Local feeds are simply XML files that live on your disk. I've created a few such feeds, and they're created by cron jobs that run every 30 minutes to update them. You can subscribe to them by dragging and dropping the XML files to PulpFiction, and filter them, label them, etc. Creating a bare-bones XML feed is quite simple, and I'll post a few of my cron job scripts in the future.

* According to plans, anyway. 🙂

Quick Recap:
Day 5: Support for "that other aggregator"'s stylesheets.
Day 6: Support for authenticated feeds.
Day 7: "Add to Filter" added to QuickSubscribe sheet.
Day 8: Export selected subscriptions.
Day 9: Preference to disable alternating blue/white background.
Day 10: "Google This," "Fwd: article title," page up/down, "category" is now "^y."
