Part 7 – Conclusion
This series has provided an introduction to developing Tools for the OPML Editor. However, the topics covered in this series have not even scratched the surface of the capabilities within the OPML Editor. Dave Winer has compiled a list of resources on the OPML Editor HowTo web site, but here are some additional pointers and guidance for learning the OPML Editor development environment:
- Frontier.userland.com – Frontier is the kernal application behind the OPML Editor. The user guide provides a good overview of the capabilities of Frontier.
- Docserver.userland.com – An overview of all keywords and commands available for the OPML editor programming language, UserTalk.
- Matt Neuberg’s Things Having To Do with Userland Frontier – Matt Neuberg is probably the leading expert on Frontier outside of UserLand Software and Dave Winer. This page provides links to tutorials on scripting and building web sites, as well as a full text version of his Frontier book. A review of these resources would benefit any OPML Editor developer.
- Radio UserLand Resource Directory – Although somewhat dated, this directory contains some good pointers to other information on the Frontier development environment, which supports the Radio UserLand application from UserLand Software.
I hope this series will “whet your appetite” to explore the power and possibilities of the OPML Editor. Feel free to leave comments on these weblog posts if you have questions or problems, or consult the About page for contact information. Good luck!
