What did I learn and do in February?
February 2015 was a busy month because of In-sem University Exams and mid-term submissions.
I contacted Lana Brindley regarding my interest in participation in OPW and certain other doubts related to bug-fixing. I worked on a few easy bugs under Openstack Documentation. Easy because they got merged in comparatively less time :P.
I have started working on my B.E. project. I am making a RSS Feed Generator as my B.E. project. RSS stands for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication.
I did write a simple RSS Feed generator using Python a year before, but it was limited to a certain site only.
RSS aggregators are a boon to people who visit certain sites regularly and want to:
1) get latest content
2) manage and organize the data
I regularly visit the following web sites:
This RSS Feed generator aims at removing the need for me to manually visit the website for latest content.
I am planning to build the RSS feed generator as a web-app. I ll be using Python to implement it and Python’s framework Flask for web development.
The reason for using Flask is:
1. Flask is good for projects with simple requirements.
2. It doesn’t require any huge setup
3. It is simple and easy to learn
4. I already have hands-on experience with Flask! 🙂
Since, there will be transmission of data between applications, so the project deals with API as well.
The best part about this project is that its meant to be Open Source!
