Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


Magpie 2.0 - BSD license!

via Martin, the news comes that Magpie 2.0, the leading (AFAIK) PHP RSS parser, is coming.

That's excellent news about the license. Python hackers have had a great BSD-ish feed parser for ages; originally it was GPL, but Mark moved it over to the Python license at some point, making it much more embeddable, and now pretty much everyone uses it for anything feed-related in Python. It'll be nice to be able to use Magpie in PeopleAggregator, etc.
