Great Minds….

Lars is creating his blogroll by converting OPML to HTML via XSLT. I’ve been meaning to get my blogroll up on my site for a while now. I use NetNewsWire as my aggregator, which can export OPML. I toyed with the idea of writing a python script to parse it up, simply because I’ve been reading up on python and I need an excuse to write some python code.

But OPML is XML, and XSLT is designed for converting XML formats, and I do a lot of work with XSLT at work. I was giving some thought just a few days ago to using XSLT to convert it. I think that’s the way I’ll go at this point.

I do want to do some special processing, but I should be able to do it all via XSLT. For one thing, I sometimes subscribe to comments feeds on things I’ve commented on. I see no need to show these in a blogroll. As long as NNW‘s OPML exports the groups I’ve put my feeds into, it should be pretty straightforward.
