When I first looked at TiddlyWiki I thought that this would be really cool to use for blogging.
So recently I’ve started to fiddle with creating macros/plugins for TiddlyWiki and I came up with the idea of an RSS reader macro. What it does is pulls in blogs via RSS, and creates a tiddler for each blog, and then tags the tiddler to link it to a specific blog feed (e.g. ‘craigCookBlog’).
The macro I’ve created can either accept two direct parameters (RSSFeedURL, tagName), or if you pass in none it will look to a specific tiddler (RSSFeedList) which contains a comma separated list of RSS feeds and their tagNames.
At the moment it only works if the TiddyWiki is stored locally, I’m working on a solution for when it is stored remotely (i.e. on a server). I’m also working on a better way of adding RSS feeds to the list, but for the moment you get the principle.
