This directory contains a little tiny script for updating the "buzz feed" which pulls from three sources:

  1. A local file for events (./events.json)
  2. tumblr for posts
  3. twitter search of #webfwd for tweets

update_feed.js is a little tiny node.js script that does all of the work. view source for more details


  1. install node.js
  2. use cron to run update_feed.js > latest.json at some intervals
  3. if you have a site update system, make sure you run update_feed.js immediately after updating your site code
  4. fiddle your web server to ensure there are properly short lived cache headers on latest.json

all done!
