ABOUT QPLANET:
--------------

Some time ago, Hispalinux[1], the Spain's biggest open source users associaton, has the need of a new planet software.
They has been using a python programed planet, but it had a few bugs, lacks of uft8 support, and the visual aspect was
a few ugly.

I got down to work to make something similar but based in the KISS technology (Keep It Simple Stupid), although...
if you makes a time machine... do it with some elegance and use a DeLorean: plain php5[4], simplepie[5] to parse the RSS
and spyc[6] to have a nice yaml[7] configuration.

I'm very happy with the code, because it's not pretty or ugly, not efficient or heavy, it's the direct fluid from my
brain to the text editor, and has been a mystical experience. ;-)

This software can be used to create a lot of planets, not only the Hispalinux's one. Associations, business, cities...
all you want.

The code its at public disposal here[8].

Of course, if you need adaptations or consultant on this software... nobody better than the author :-)
