In my ways to make Reading Lists post I forgot to add a few resources
…most of the resources I mentioned are web-based, but here are some desktop OPML editors:
- omni outliner (mac only)
Since these are desktop OPML editors you need to host the OPML at a URL, and also host the outline at an OPML.
Using Reading Lists
More importantly, News River (by OPML editor crew) is another tool that can use Reading Lists.
What about OPML2PDF…this takes the first 10 feeds from your Reading List (max. 50 posts per feed) and coverts it into PDF…you can also read feeds like a PDF RSS Reader…cool idea to read a print of the latest from your Reading List on the train.
There is also Taskable…although I haven’t been able to get this to work (it always says “loading”)
Also see my post on newsmastering services not being able to use Reading Lists yet.
My current Reading List
See my Reading List on the sidebar of my blog or see it at Bitty Browser.
Read it in Optimal
I need to make a new TagCloud, it’s not accepting my OPML URL for some reason.
I need to make a Link List (Blogroll) mirror of my Reading List…this means the items in my OPML URL will be the blog homepages instead of the blog feeds
…then I can import this into Rollyo…hang on I forgot Rollyo doesn’t use OPML.
I’ve mentioned before it would be good if Rollyo could use OPML, so when ever my OPML URL changes it will automatically reflect in Rollyo, sames goes with TagCloud.
I don’t want to change a hundred things everytime my Reading List changes, the beauty is that it can happen automatically…we need a push for services to not only accept OPML files or OPML URL, but to actually subscribe to the dynamic OPML URL.
I guess I don’t have to make a Link List (Blogroll), I could just use the Reading List in ScoopGo…again one day these services will be savvy to OPML…I want to search via an OPML URL.
NOTE: ScoopGo searches in feed content, not HTML content, so it may be incomplete since not all feeds are full-text…the other thing is ScoopGo only accepts 30 feeds.
