Developing OPML Editor Tools – Part 7

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:

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!

  1. Hey Andy,

    I just wanted to say how much I’m enjoying your OPML Editor series. The big problem I’m having is that my macros do not seem to process.

    I’m at part 3 of the series and I can’t get the macros to be processed. The page renderer ignores both the use of {} and which I have seen stated as the preferred method for marking macros.

    No matter which I try the whole thing is being rendered as plain text with no evaluation.

    I have even tried verbs like { ()} or .

    I was hoping you may have seen this problem and overcome it.
