Ja, so wird das was … Genial!
Bloglines launcht „Bloglines Web Services“; und ganz untraditionell mal ein nahezu kompletter Full-Quote, weil’s so genial ist:
So what does this mean? If you’re a desktop aggregator developer, you can use Bloglines to provide a sync’ing capability for your users. And you don’t have to worry about supporting the different RSS and Atom formats (and various imperfect feeds), because Bloglines normalizes all data.
If you’re a publisher thinking about entering the world of RSS, you don’t have to worry about thousands of desktop aggregators pummeling your servers into oblivion. With the Bloglines Web Services, Bloglines acts as a feed cache, insulating content providers from bandwidth problems.
What makes this announcement extra special, of course, is that the leading desktop aggregators are announcing support for the Bloglines Web Services. FeedDemon has a beta version available now with support built-in, and NetNewsWire and BlogBot will be launching new versions soon.
Bloglines Web Services Enable Synchronization for Desktop News Aggregators
„Our customers have been looking for the ability to synchronize their feed subscriptions across multiple computers,“ said Nick Bradbury, founder of Bradbury Software and creator of FeedDemon, the leading RSS aggregator for Windows. „By partnering with Bloglines, we are now able to offer the rich desktop functionality FeedDemon customers have come to expect, with the flexible mobility and portability of a web service.“
Starting with version 1.5, FeedDemon users can create a Bloglines Channel Group from their Bloglines subscriptions. When viewing a Bloglines Channel Group, items you read in Bloglines won’t show up in FeedDemon, and items you download in FeedDemon won’t show up as unread in Bloglines. It’s very easy to synchronize with your Bloglines subscriptions so that FeedDemon reflects feeds you add or remove from Bloglines.
Wunderbar, heute Abend gleich probieren 🙂
