feedflash – another attempt for Flash widget

Posted by Moxie Zhang | March 6, 2007 .

This feedflash site has very simple and open way of doing widget, even be able to just by yourself. They might not be able to become a big startup but it’s interesting to learn how thing can be simply done.

The backbend is just PHP script handling retrieving RSS feed, using the well know lastRSS PHP free library. So really they didn’t do much of plumbing and wiring. The one swf file as widget frondend is developed using OpenLaszlo, which could be a small challenger to Flex because it is, well, OPEN. That’s about it, it works. By the way, you can download the code and host the widget by yourself.

Here is my flex888 widet:
