pilatus for yahoo pipes

picture-1I just updated the activity page for Ruote (warning it needs some CSS love). It’s populated with the result of a Yahoo Pipe that gathers the feeds of Ruote’s activity, be it on github, the users mailing list or this blog.

It all happens on the client side. I’ve written a small javascript library called Pilatus to which you give the URL of a pipe and the id of the HTML div element to fill and that’s all.

  <script src='/pilatus.js'><script>

  <div id='feed'></div>

  <script>
    Pilatus.loadAndRender(
      "feed",
      "http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=XGwyd_LA3RGNSAMs6icw5g");
  </script>

Nothing special. License is MIT, washing my hands.
