I have never really used webtools or even a toolchain, except for simple stuff like this blog or twitter. Usually I just develop stuff if I need something special. But yesterday I used two tools which are great especially the second one. RSS Pump can aggregate several data source, not just RSS feeds, and shows them as a newsticker or a static list. So I'm using it to collect news and articles regarding EVE Online for my corp homepage. The other tool I am amazed by is Yahoo! Pipes. It also collects data from various sources but that's where the similarities end. The end product is a RSS feed or JSON data but in between you can twist and format the data any way you like, which is great as I noticed as not every source has the same format. But what amazed me even more is the editor as it's not text based but instead done via visual programming, neatly visualizing the dataflow.

Some interesting functions if you happen to write PHP code in emacs:
php-mode.el with some modifications:
;; - php-check-syntax-and-goto-line bound to F12 ;; - changed the find-tag-default function to differentiate between ;; methods and functions BUT this means you need to use tag-fucker.php ;; instead of etags/ctags/whatever
php.el Some extra php related elisp code. Them gem of it is
update-tag-file which does what it says on saving a file (
Those files need a bit of shell & elisp knowledge if you want to use them. Go and hack away. If you like/use/modified it pls leave a comment.
- Add a hook to save buffer
- run script to remove file from TAGS
- run tag-fker to add stuff from buffer
- run some tags function in emacs to make adopt changes in TAGS
Update: check out https://github.com/tekai/tools/blob/master/php.el#L45 for an implementation
