Luke Hutteman's SharpReader and PyDS - Amazing Combination!

Luke Huttenman has released SharpReader and it is fantastic. I can't say enough about this RSS Aggregator. First it took me about 5 minutes to set it up to post to PyDS ... amazing. To do that I used the BlogThisUrl plugin. I created in a plugin directory under the SharpReader install directory and unzip the plugin there. Then I modified the BlogThisUrl.template to contain the following:


That should be all on one line. Thats it. Now when you rick click on a post in SharpReader, you have a BlogThis option which preloads all the correct into into PyDS, the link, title, source and text! Its beautiful.

Now there is a great deal in SharpReader to commend it, but the main thing it gives me is the ability to post from a single aggregator to multiple blogs maintained by PyDS ... because it posts to which ever PyDS instance I happen to be running at the moment.

I have now managed to consolicate all my aggregator feeds into one place and am extremely pleased. Not to mention that it is extremely fast, incredible at organizing feeds, understands opml, built in filtering (textual and by time), technorati look up, built in feedster query ... and the list goes on.

I'm a SharpReader Believer!
