Well, really, this is me pushing it out into the world, because nobody will have noticed it before now, and with this, there’s a chance they might.</p> <p>A couple of months ago <a href=”https://manton.org”>Manton Reece</a> and <a href=”http://inessential.com/”>Brent Simmons</a> announced the existence of <a href=”https://jsonfeed.org”>JSON Feed</a>, a new syndication format to sit alongside <a href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS”>RSS</a> and <a href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atom_(standard)”>Atom</a>; but using <a href=”http://json.org”>JavaScript Object Notation</a> or JSON, instead of XML.</p> <p>They invited people to write parsers and formatters and so on for it, and I quickly realised that no-one had yet written one in Java. As far as I can tell that is still the case. Or at least, if they have, they haven’t made it public yet.</p> <p>No-one, that is, but me, as I have written just such a thing: a JSON Feed parsing library, written in Java. I’m calling it <a href=”http://tinlion.software/products/pertwee/”>Pertwee</a>. That’s the product page at my company site (more on which later). It’s open-source, and can be found <a href=”https://github.com/devilgate/pertwee”>at Github</a></p> <p>As software projects go, it’s not that exciting. But it is the first open-source project that I’ve released. I hope someone might find some use for it.</p> apache licensedfree softwarejsonjson feedopen sourcePertweeprogrammingworkhttps://devilgate.org/blog/2017/07/24/some-open-source-software-for-your-delectation/Mon, 24 Jul 2017 20:54:59 GMT
