Hi guys! I'm pretty new to feedreaders, but I thought it would be useful to write up some bits and bobs about pulling feeds from Pinboard/Diigo for those who do not have accounts on the respective sites but want to follow the action, so to speak. Also, I'd like to have the info for pulling Delicious feeds for people who stay with Pinboard/Diigo/etc.
Before I get started, I don't really know the difference between subscribing to RSS vs JSON feeds. If anyone wants to chime in, that would be greatly appreciated! For the purpose of this post, I'm talking about RSS feeds.
Step 1: Does anyone have a favorite feed-reader that shows tags from these feeds? I've found NewsBlur
(free for 64 subscriptions) does get tags from the Pinboard and Delicious feeds I've set up, but mangles the Pinboard ones badly (all lumped into one gigantor tag it looks like), and doesn't recognize the "/" in the tag and splits it in two. I've reported the Pinboard issue earlier this afternoon, so I'll edit when I hear back.
From a convo I just had on twitter, google Reader doesn't display Pinboard tags, and
no longer displays Delicious tags
displays tags if you add '?fancy' to the end of the feed URL but hides the notes field (Thanks Anon!
), and is an easy option for many people. Feedly also does not display the tags from Pinboard feeds, haven't tried with Delicious.( Hints for setting up NewsBlur )
Step 2: Feeds for Delicious. I haven't tried many of these, but the feed info is here
. Subscriptions for specific tags seem to be working ok, and shockingly I was able to pull some recent stuff ostensibly from my network, but the subscriptions feed is dead like a dead thing for me.
Step 3: Feeds for Pinboard. Feed info is listed here
(scroll down). Things work, though NewsBlur doesn't show the tags properly. You can also find public feeds linked from the relevant pages near the top of the page on the right before the tags.
Step 4: Feeds for Diigo. I haven't spent very much time using Diigo, so this was a bit of a challenge. I couldn't find a place that listed how their RSS feeds worked, so you basically just have to go poking around. NewsBlur actually does a pretty great job of pulling in the feeds and understanding the tags. The tags also show up in the 'body' of the post.( summary of Diigo feeds )
