FeedVis 2.0: custom visualization for your feeds

this is what feedvis looks like

My FeedVis project–the interactive tagcloud for a group of feeds–has been out for a week now, I’ve been thrilled at the positive response I’ve gotten so far.  One rather glaring problem with the program, though, was that you could only look at the top 50 edublogs.

Not anymore.  After a few late nights, I’ve got a beta system for uploading and analyzing your own sets of feeds.  You just upload your opml, wait a few minutes, and you’re set: FeedVis gives you a custom page that you can bookmark and return to anytime you like; it’ll continue to update every time you visit.  You can also browse visualizations of other people’s feeds.

It’s pretty untested, and I’m sure use will uncover some bugs.  But it’s got potential; I’m excited to see what people think.

    very impressive, a very nice way to explore tags in detail! keep up the good work – I’m really impressed at the use of javascript to create this as well!

    Found this years after… and find it still pretty awesome.

    Would be great to have some instructions how to get it working, I always get errors. And it has to do something with the accounts…

    Hans, there is some documentation included in the package, in the readme. Beyond that, you may need to look at the code and internal documentation. I wish I had more time to support FeedVis, but unfortunately I’m now devoting pretty much 100% of my time to my new startup, total-impact. Best of luck, and thanks for your interest!
