Yahoo! Pipes: Pipe Bagdes

April 3rd, 2008

Some years back just before the web 2.0 craze, there were no such thing as small services start ups like now, so if you needed something you went looking for someone hosting a page offering a service that many times was nameless or un supported. later on as things changed small hosted services appeared and finally offered a face and info behind the service. at that moment in time RSS use was not widespread.so if you wanted to generate a feed from a page or generate a page from a feed you had to go to one of such services. a good example of this was/is Feedigest and others along those lines where you generated javascript, html and json from feeds or viceverza.

Now, all of that has gotten easier and more powerful with services like Yahoo! Pipes. and the main feature is generating  feeds or generating something from feeds.

Yahoo Pipes lays in the middle from what Feedigest meant years back and what more powerful services like PopFly do now, but they are finally triying to catch up so they have released the option to generated what they call Pipe Badges. a kind branded pair of words that truly means you can make a predefined mashup display with a feed. sounds familiar to PopFly don`t it?. well it is just that you cannot output directly to Silverlight.

So, with that context in mind, if you like Yahoo! pipes or want to play with it, now you can generate 3 kind of these feed mashup displays.

You can post them directly to 3 blog platforms (blogger, wordpress and typad) or generate a iGoogle gadget or simply grab the embed code.

The options are:

  1. Feed List
  2. Slideshow
  3. Map
