Niclas Darville, on creating a JSON Feed template for Jekyll:
It literally took me longer to write this blog post than the JSON
feed code, because I couldn’t get Jekyll to escape the Liquid code
On Twitter, Darville wrote
One of the best things about @jsonfeed is how well it works as a
Hello World kind of programming exercise.
Sure beats to-do lists.
Jason McIntosh described
adding JSON Feed support to his home-grown blog engine as a “blowing-off-steam project”.
These reactions are exactly what I mean about JSON Feed being fun
. There’s a time and place for specs that are drop-dead serious, but I think it’s often overlooked just how important fun
can be in having a new spec gain traction.
