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:
- Add in an administration panel
- Right now all the data (Twitter handle, blog ID, etc. is hard-coded)
- 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.
