New version of Orango underway
I have spend some time re-doing me and Mathiases
feedreader Orango. Well, I did this mostly to get in coding-shape again. The summer was long and I pretty much did not turn on a computer. I also got a job where I should be doing lots of programming... Well, I also needed a great feedreader!
Anyway, here are the changes:
Moved away from ZODB
DRMS. It's all MySQL now :-). This gives a major performance boost! And a lot of new features could be added in the future because of this move [favourites, search etc.]
I re-did the parsing engine [which Mathias did last time]. I used feedparser. This means there is now support for RSS and Atom feeds.
Added some new features in the user interface. A major one is that it is now possible to select the items.
Rewrote the application logic. I tried to follow the model-view-controller design pattern. Moved to CherryPy 2.1.
Changed the name from Orango to Orangoo
I am not (yet) going to launch this version, but you can get a sneakpeak (click for a bigger version).
