listparser v0.4 - "07/18,29"Posted 18 July 2009 in listparser
I just released listparser v0.4. It now supports categories and tags, and in two ways:
categoryattribute of the
While the OPML specification uses the
category attribute, I also wanted to support nested
<outline> elements because that's how Google Reader indicates what tags (what they call "labels") are associated with a feed. Thus, the following two samples are equivalently categorized:
<outline text="Alice" category="/friend" type="rss" /> <outline text="friend"> <outline text="Alice" type="rss" /> </outline>
I've chosen to handle categories and tags in different ways in listparser: categories are inherently hierarchical. Tags are not. Thus, if a feed is nested one level deep (as is the case with Google Reader OPML exports), listparser will give it both a tag and a category. If it's nested more than one level deep (as can be the case with Liferea OPML exports), then only categories will be assigned.
Try it out!
