Feedrolls in XOXO from OPML via XSLT and URL-line Magic
I haven't really gotten around to making that blogroll I was promising. But, for the hell of it, I tried cleaning up an OPML export from my aggregator to remove my private feeds and for-pay feeds—which, incidentally and unfortunately were some of my most interesting feeds.
But, that said, here's my feedroll. It's the result of some more URL-line magic:
- Take one OPML file: feedroll.opml
- Grab this XSLT: opml-to-hblogroll.xsl
- Run them both through the W3C XSLT Service to get this: feedroll.xhtml
- Got some OPML on the web? Paste your URL here and hit return: Note: Doesn't like OPML that's invalid XML.
But, for what it's worth, view source on that feedroll. I came up with a tentative "hBlogroll" microformat for it, based on XOXO and some OPML semantics. I haven't written the code for it yet, but I imagine that this should be pretty easily parsed.
It's being served with Content-Type: application/xml and an <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> heading.
If you make doctype header that should persuade firefox and safari to show it as html.
@Kevin: D'oh. It's the little things I always forget. That, and the big things. Thanks for the reminder!
