I made some updates to add filtering of the river used in the app. The user can enter a one word search term to filter the results of the river. For example, if you wanted to find all items that had “Obama” in the title or body, you can enter “Obama” (no quotes) in the text box and see the items with that term shown. The search is case-insensitive.
After my post from yesterday on the River.js format for feed rivers, I remembered that Dave Winer had done an earlier version of JSON encoding for RSS feeds called Rss.js. I made some slight changes to my Minimal River.js Reader and created a new version. You can check it out on my website or on Github.
I saw Dave Winer post some sample code this morning for reading feed files in the River.js format. I immediately started playing with it, and decided to create a simple app based on his sample. You can check it out on my website, as well as check out the code on Github. Enjoy! I plan to do more with this app, but at least I have a start….
