A node.js application that reads from the WordPress firehose (see http://en.wordpress.com/firehose/ for details) and shows a running list of new entries on WordPress sites on a web page.
It uses node.js with socket.io to display and update the list as updates come available.
This application comes mostly from a desire to understand these tools and the cool way that @edsu has used them to make Wikistream (see https://github.com/edsu/wikistream). It looks a lot just like Wikistream because I read and copied liberally from Wikistream as I wrote it. To a lesser extent, I also wanted to get a feel for the flow of data into a service like WordPress.
To install, set up node w/npm:
Grab external node libraries w/npm:
Then start the app:
Finally, open your browser to:

- Ed Summers (@edsu)
Wholly inspired by and copied from Ed Summers' Wikistream, as mentioned above.
