If only I was a good programmer, I would have known to expect the weirdest stuff with data coming from outside the system. At mefeedia, we aggregate RSS feeds, and anything you can imagine is out there. Loads of invalid feeds (but we take them anyway), invalid data, missing elements, and so on. What a mess :)

  1. Hola Peter,

    just curious, what aggregator solution are you using at mefeedia? I’m just sitting here planning for a project involving aggregating feeds and trying to decide if I should be going with php/magpie, ruby/feedtools or python/universal feed parser. What’s your experience?

  2. I use Magpie, it’s not the greatest but works so far. Had to hack in some mediarss stuff. I hear good things about the python one but no real experience.
