As an alternative to using the 'Home' pages of online services such as Google, Yahoo, etc - which force you to redesign your home page every time they take it into their heads to redesign their site, seemingly every few months - this page explores the possibility of a simple, stable, alternative that you can either host on a website or else just keep as a file on your PC. It explores how to use 3rd party RSS to HTML conversion services to recreate one of the most important functionalities of a conventional home page, the news and other feeds.
An example of server-side PHP scripting is: FeedForAll.
Examples of client-side scripts include:
|Bloople - RSS 2 HTML||Seemingly fully compliant result, can be styled, works in all mainstream browsers that were tested|
|FeedRoll||Non-compliant result, can be styled, works in all mainstream browsers that were tested|
|RSS Dog||Inserts advertising elsewhere on your page, so not demonstrated here|
|RSSFeedConverter||Requires registration, so not tested here|
|RSSinclude||Requires registration, so not tested here|
|WebRSS||Requires registration, so not tested here|
This demonstration displays the raw output pretty much as inserted by FeedRoll.
Apologies for this inconvenience.
