If you have been reading this blog you would know that I have blogring now. It’s stored as JSON documents in CouchDB and then used in widgets in the sidebar. It also happens that I read the same blogs in a feed reader. So I wanted a way to import these into my blog reader easily. CouchDB is my source of truth; hence I wanted a way to export JSON documents into OPML format that can be imported into any reader.
I wanted to write a simple web component to display the Blogring. Currently, I have embed.html, I use it in an iframe, inside which we get the data to create the content and set it as the innerHTML of a div. I just wanted a fancy tag that would embed the Blogring.
ad to my readers. Only personal blogs or blogs that individuals write are included. It’s done now, and it’s live.
