Circadian almost ready to launch!

The frontend for Circadian is completely done. You can see at an example at and the code is available on GitHub.

Circadian is entirely driven by "scratching your own itch", as they say. I wanted my online presence to aggregate my blog posts and my Twitter updates in one combined activity feed, and I couldn't find any good way to do that. So, over my winter break, I took a few days and I wrote my own. I had a few days free this week and I went back and added in all the little tweaks I didn't get to or thought of in the intervening weeks to reach the current iteration.

There's basically two minor things left, and then I'm ready to release it as a service:

  1. Add in an administration panel
    1. Right now all the data (Twitter handle, blog ID, etc. is hard-coded)
  2. Change the resource sheme to support multiple users
I'm not sure if other people will find it as useful as I have (my guess is not) but as long as it's free to host, I might as well throw it out there and see if people like it.

I've almost got Blogger integration complete in my aggregate online profile service, Circadian! After that, it's almost ready to launch. Stay tuned for more info...
