Moved rss2hp.xsl

Update (a few mintues later): I’ll put some test links. This is using orchard’s xslt and hyperscope install and my xsl to do the transform. My Blog’s Feed in Hyperscope NY Times in Hyperscope NYTimes Music (my favorite) in hyperscope Discovery Top Stories in Hyperscope Reuter’s News in Hyperscope Rss Spec’s rss feed in hyperscope […]

neat: orchard’s xsltproc works &

todo: clean up rss2hp.xsl

I think this needs some additional cleaning and enhancement before being eligible for consideration as a contest entry. Need to hurry on this, it’s already been a day and the last contest was over in two.

idea: todo: wikipedia to hyperscope

Wikipedia has a regular document structure. In fact, one of the benefits of wikis is that it allows users to focus more and content, and less on style. Therefore many wikis have a regular emergent document structure that can be more or less predictably parsed… anyone up for an expert interface to wikipedia???

done: verify rss version 2 to opml xslt

rss2hp.xsl transformed this feed into a hyperscope document. Pretty nifty. It seems to work alright. My webhosting doesn’t have xsltproc. I quickly tried to use php to do the transform, but I don’t have sablotron, evidently. I think I’m moving hosting providers relatively soon, anyway, and was even hesitant to put this up over there. […]

done: rss2hp.xsl

Rss Version 2 Transformed Into Hyperscope rss2hp.xsl is an xslt stylesheet that attempts to transfrom rss 2 into opml suitable for hyperscope. This is a bit rough, and I haven’t actually verified that it works, although it seems to transform into decent OPML. Verify that this works with hyperscope!

todo: idea: rewrite dbview using kid, cherrypy, and sqlobject/sqlalchemy

Dan Connolly wrote a quick thing called which attempts to talk to a database and expose it to the web. It’s ok, but it’s got html mixed in with the source code, and I’m not sure how nice it is, really. I should try running it before doing anything, I suppose.

web style software

Linked Data Every piece of data has a URI. The way you access an object is by dereferencing it’s URI. The result is a kind of ORM over the web. I don’t really like that phrase, “ORM over the web”, so if you have a better suggestion, please tell me. ElementTree and Python I’ve been […]

todo: idea: hyperscope + microformats

See Hyperscope. Think microformats, and XOXO powered in addition to OPML-based. Also envision tiddly-wiki, instant in place editing ala mimulus and deductive interfaces… maps, calendars, outlines on demand. Compare arbitrary lists you find on the web. Join hyperscope mailing list. Use orchard’s xslt to make a xoxo2opml if not already done. hyperscope discussion of […]

idea: s5 editor/organizer

S5 is a great way to create presentations using standard xhtml, css, and javascript. The problem is editing and creating those things. It’d be nice to have a tool to help edit. I think a wysiwg tool might be very apropriate here. It’s purely structural elements. Slides should be draggable and droppable. An easy implementation […]
