Merged RSS Feed for German Readers
A new joint feed featuring all entries of my site, English and German, is now available through Yahoo Pipes. Since both parts of my site differ in several regards, including separate feeds, English-speaking German readers tended to subscribe to two feeds which isn’t convenient. Now there’s the option to follow a single feed instead.
However, this is just a quick first announcement after Yahoo had fixed an encoding issue. The order of the feed items is not correct yet; then, I need to figure out a more intelligent way to point readers to the new feed. I decided against linking the feed the classical way via
link because user options would be doubled. That would have turned feed choice unnecessarily “complex” (also the reason why there are no comments feeds either—keep it simple). I didn’t want to use a regular hyperlink to that feed either, at least not now. I’m working on both. Good web design is a process; this is how we roll.
Update (November 30, 2013)
I’ve mirrored the joint feed at meiert.com/feed. Please subscribe to this one. The reason for the mirror and the suggestion is that if Yahoo were to shut the Pipes service down, our connection was lost. By subscribing to the feed on this site, you are sure to always get all the information.
Update (October 31, 2016)
I’m Jens, and I’m an engineering lead and author. I’ve worked as a technical lead for companies like Google, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly and Frontend Dogma. I love trying things, not only in web development, but also in other areas like philosophy. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.
If you have a question or suggestion about what I write, please leave a comment (if available) or a message. Thank you!
