Magpie Unit tests

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

Since people were waving tasks around several months ago and I finally got tired of atom feeds showing up incorrectly in Gregarius, I decided to port some of Feedparser tests to Magpie. I created a rudimentary ajax-ified unit testing harness for Magpie. You can download it to your webserver with subversion svn co Then, [...]

Dreamhost Quirks

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

Dreamhost is doing some strange things with my php scripts. Why are you stealing my newlines? For some strange reason newlines at the end of files seem to be eaten. Take a look at these two php files. < ?phpecho "This string has no newline at the end";?> and < ?phpecho "This first string has a newline at the end\n";?> If you wget these two files (file1, file2) you will see that [...]

Web based interfaces

Friday, September 16th, 2005

Roundcube is a very impressive open source web based email reader. It seems to be just like a desktop application and has all the advantages of being web-based. You can access it from anywhere using almost any browser on any OS. The Ajaxified interface feels light and dynamic. Try out the demo. It is quite [...]

Gregarius Crystal Theme

Friday, September 9th, 2005

I added a few nice icons from the Crystal theme for KDE to the default Gregarius theme. This KDE theme has been distributed under the LGPL so I think I am legally allowed to release this theme under the same license. To use the theme, download it and then unzip it into your theme directory [...]

Gregarius is a nifty web based feed reader. Web-based feed readers are much better than desktop programs because you can read your feeds from anywhere. This one is particularly nice because it is full of features, has a nice clean, AJAXified interface and can be themed to look quite beautiful. I have been using Safari [...]
