News Feeds Widget: RSS+Twitter+Blogs

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

LuxSci has added a new Widget to its inventory of pre-defined Widgets available to all users — the “Multi-Feed” Widget.

With the Multi-Feed widget, you can specify an arbitrary collection of news feeds from diverse sources and have them be all downloaded, sorted together by date, and displayed to you as an aggregate list of news items in your Workspace.

The Multi-Feed Widget supports:

  • RSS Feeds
  • Twitter update feeds (showing the tweets of everyone that you follow on Twitter)
  • LuxSci WebAide Blogs

In the future, other feed sources will also be supported, such as facebook.
