Feed-based hacks get a new lease on life

Alan Levine, originator and keeper of the useful but endangered web service, announced last week that thanks to

the generosity of people who have donated financial support, and one anonymous donor in particular, I have sufficient funds to keep Feed2JS running at least through June 2013, and maybe longer.

Feed2js turns rss feeds into scripts that will run on blogger.

If you manipulate your blog feed to, say, reverse the order of posts, you can then run it through feed2js and just paste the result onto a static blog page or sidebar gadget. No javascript knowledge required. Genius!

Alan announced last summer that the popularity of the service had made it too expensive for him to fund out of pocket.

His latest news of a year-and-a-half reprieve (in dog years, that is more than a decade) is welcome news.

The full story is on Alan's blog.
