One of my frustrations with Seesmic was simply knowing what was going on without hitting the site all the time and filtering posts. The provide a Twitter feed which is pretty good but it's getting busy and although they have an RSS feed on the top of the Twitter feed i never knew this til i looked at their JSON code....
... in any case there are a number of things i wanted to do and will likely want to do in the future to the JSON to XML stuff i did will likely come in useful again.
ANYWAY - what have I done??
1. An RSS feed of Seesmic - updates around every 15 minutes and can be found here :
2. You can discover posts relevant to you using the "u" querystring value. So
... will return feeds created by me - or directed to me (if you really only want things created by you, then add "by " to the query, such as http://livz.org/seesmic?u=by @weblivz).
3. You can filter based on content using the "t" querystring value. So you can find posts about Seesmic with the following query:
THIS means you can see if anyone has replied to you by just appending "Re: " to the first few characters of your original subject line. So looking at the site just now, i can find replies to "Reload Seesmic for new features !" with the following query ....
It's a bit of a start - hope it is of some use. I already use it to quickly check the last N posts - i guess the fact i can now translate their JSON to RSS will be more useful when it comes to RSS on a person basic - rather than public (which may be quite soon as it's getting busy). In any case hope the filtering features are of some use.
