Feeds highlights (video)

I noticed that I had a enormous backlog in my feedreader (feedly) starting from around September (pre IconUK). Allthough the amount of blogposts in the Yellow Bubble is declining (fast) I just did not have the time to keep up with it untill now.

I thought it would be a great idea to consume the feeds in a different matter so the idea came up to take a weekly ‘snapshot’ and mention some of this weeks most interesting posts. The result is a short video which is easy to consume. Probably a demo or two of the highlights would have made things much more clear, but hey I am not Niklas Heidloff nor do I reside in some form of organ of an open source community.

I apologize for the bad quality since I used the internal microphone of my PC and there are constructions taking place in the street I live. At least I am rid off the many unread blog/news items 🙂

Q: How to use an XPage as XML source (RSS)

I noticed that you can specify an RSS playlist for a movie in the JW Player. The playlist should be similar according like this example file.

In my Bildr application I am still relying on a the combination of a view/$$viewtemplate form/webqueryopen agent combination which seems like a deprecated approach in XPages Domino development.

Since I haven’t used an XPage before as an RSS feed I am wondering what would be the easiest approach/implementation?

  • my XPage should be able to take a document UNID as identifier
  • my XPage should perform a search and return a collection with an X number of documents from the same author (channel)

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I will also update the RSS feed in Bildr with the solution…

Below an impression how far I have come:

(probably the app will be uploaded on OpenNTF in case I manage to qualify for the IP scan =))
