Feedjack 0.9.18

Multisite Feed Agregator (Planet)

Latest Version: 16.8.1


Following is a fork of feedjack from 2005. It includes fixes to support new Django releases,
nothing more. If someone is interested maintaining the fork with bugfixed and new features,
let me know (or in case better django product arises).

Feedjack is a feed aggregator writen in Python using the Django web development

Like the Planet feed aggregator:

* It downloads feeds and aggregate their contents in a single site
* The new aggregated site has a feed of its own (atom and rss)
* It uses Mark Pilgrim’s excelent FeedParser
* The subscribers list can be exported as OPML and FOAF

But FeedJack also has some advantages:

* It handles historical data, you can read old posts
* It parses a lot more info, including post categories
* It generates pages with posts of a certain category
* It generates pages with posts from a certain subscriber
* It generates pages with posts of a certain category from a certain
* A cloud tag/folksonomy (hype 2.0 compliant) for every page and every
* It uses Django templates
* The administration is done via web (using Django's kickass autogenerated
and magical admin site), and can handle multiple planets
* Extensive use of django’s internal cache engine. Most of the time you
will have no database hits when serving pages.

Feedjack 0.9.14
* Lots of fixes/improvements in
- better unicode handling on logging, this will prevent feeds not updating
when using the --verbose flag
- Multithreaded feed fetching, needs the threadpool module, available in
By default 10 threads will be used, can be modified with the -w option
If the threadpool module is not available, the old (SLOW) single
threaded method will be used.
- Improved logging. Since multiple feeds can be processed in parallel now,
all log entries go in a single line, with the feed id as a prefix.
- Stats in the logging, how many new posts, updated posts, unmodified posts
and errors were found per feed and globally, and feed status (ok,
unchanged, can't parse feed, http error, some exception)
- Reporting slow feeds, if a feed takes longer than 10 seconds to process, it
will appear in the logs with the tag "(SLOW FEED!)"
