The modern, unambitious Copia

The aggregated feeds:





The O'Reilly mess

O'Reilly has been doing all sorts of tinkering with their feeds and such, and the results are largely a mess. I won't do too much wailing about it here, but Jeni touches on some of the problems. It was a pain to extract useful information for reflecting ORA on Copia, so it's captured here:

My new author feed ( only)

Direct link to an HTML listing of all blog posts (including non-broadcast) I had to go sleuthing on to find the $@#%! feed for these old posts. What's up with bog-simple feed discovery?

Feed of all blog posts (including non-broadcast) Found by sleuthing on ... <sigh>

Outdated info


Set-up and import

Download the script.

Download copia.ini.

We use tagsoup to clean up the entries upon import. It should be enough to download the tagsoup jar file to the same location as the script.

The ogbuji template is at: (read/write repository at ssh:// ). It's based on this "open source" design

hg clone ssh:// ogbuji

The Copia template then be placed in the template directory, peer to a couple of other dependencies from templates. Below is a directory listing of Copia install once set up.

Editor notes

You can convert a permalink URL to an admin edit one as fllows:


echo | python -c "import sys; print'blog', 'blog/admin/edit').rstrip('/') + '.atom'"
