Chapter 9. Minimalist Blogging with Blosxom > Aggregating RSS with Blagg

9.11. Aggregating RSS with Blagg

Blagg (short for Blossom Aggregator) affords Blosxom the ability to aggregate (i.e., read and blog) RSS syndicated feeds of many flavors (0.9, 0.91, 0.92, 1.0) via a simple, command-line interface. Blagg builds on the simple, lightweight framework of Blosxom, interspersing aggregated stories amongst original entries.

Blagg is maintained as a separate project from Blosxom, because while it was designed with Blosxom in mind and is indeed fully integrated, it has its own place as the basis for just about anything needing a simple, lightweight RSS reader/aggregator. Indeed, this is already the case: via plugins (Blaggplugs), Blagg is able to push aggregated RSS to email recipients, instant messenger buddies, and to weblog software such as of MovableType and Blogger.
