Pictures / Stage Progress

Plan of Action

  • Think about feeds to get
  • Find XML parser
  • attempt twitter auth
  • find framework
  • create databases
  • login user
  • add feeds
  • delete feeds
  • display feeds

Libraries used

What Was Difficult

  • To get page updated as async calls were made, needed system to receive info
  • Attempted Socket.io, but did not meet expectations
  • created own server-client messaging system
  • changing rank order of feeds
  • parsing XML data feeds
  • querying database
  • mobile friendly
  • Twitter Auth
  • Sorting feeds chronologically

What I Liked

  • Parsing XML data
  • Using Mustache was great!

Oustanding Issues

  • Add "to read" functionality
  • Add limit to number from feed to view
  • retain feed sort in session storage

Future Ideas

  • share feed publically
  • inject user comments into feed
  • etc...
