Still working on my RSS Filter
by Frank Spychalski filed under Computer, projects

I started working on my RSS filter again. It’s a rewrite of my php test as a small Ruby on Rails app using Bob Aman‘s FeedTools. All the time I was wondering if this is really worth spending my time. To me the idea of filtering feeds seems obvious, but it felt strange that there were no other tools around to provide the same service.

Yesterday I found Feedrinse, so perhaps my idea isn’t strange after all. They provide only very simple features: filter by author, filter by keyword and filter by tag. Not much, but it shows there is a market :-)
