Feed speed record Wed, Jan 10, 2007

Record time indeed. I gave myself a 10 minute break during work to set up an RSS feed for my site. I didn’t really think I could get it done, but in fact I did! How’s that for some <a href="http://www.djangoproject.com/">Django</a> power?!?

The feed is now located at http://www.thesergents.net/feeds/latest/. I tested it in Google’s reader and it works just fine. Just tested it under Safari as well - looks good. If you’re curious I followed these simple setup directions (http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/syndication/) almost exactly. The only tricky thing I had to do was define a get_absolute_url method for my Page class. If only everything were that easy.

I’ll try to get some of those fancy little xml logos up and put the link meta junk in the header so feed readers will automatically pick it up. Maybe a post lunch project.
