Feedjack is a feed aggregator writen in Python using the Django web development framework.

Like the Planet feed aggregator:

  • It downloads feeds and aggregate their contents in a single site
  • The new aggregated site has a feed of its own (atom and rss)
  • It uses Mark Pilgrim’s excelent FeedParser
  • The subscribers list can be exported as OPML and FOAF

But FeedJack also has some advantages:

  • It handles historical data, you can read old posts
  • It parses a lot more info, including post categories
  • It generates pages with posts of a certain category
  • It generates pages with posts from a certain subscriber
  • It generates pages with posts of a certain category from a certain
  • A cloud tag/folksonomy (hype 2.0 compliant) for every page and every subscriber
  • It uses Django templates
  • The administration is done via web (using Django's kickass autogenerated and magical admin site), and can handle multiple planets
  • Extensive use of django’s internal cache engine. Most of the time you will have no database hits when serving pages.
