  • 1 Hour Friday, 1 May 2009 I had one hour. What do you do?
  • Code lunch Friday, 1 May 2009 No need for eating. What will I do?
  • Sinatra http://sinatrarb.com Friday, 1 May 2009 We use Sinatra!
  • Yahoo Pipes http://pipes.yahoo.com Friday, 1 May 2009 Annd data from other peoples websites. No RDBMS for me!
  • Yahoo Pipes • Get data from multiple web based sources • Mash it up a bit • Provide a single output in either JSON or XML Friday, 1 May 2009
  • YQL Friday, 1 May 2009
  • YQL? Friday, 1 May 2009 Yeah, its kinda SQL for the web. Most people don’t even really like writing SQL
  • @lachlanhardy Friday, 1 May 2009 Lachlan convinced me to have a second look at YQL after slagging it o
  • Time to start Friday, 1 May 2009
  • Friday, 1 May 2009 The code isn’t important, but basically it just talks to a yahoo pipe that I made up.
  • Friday, 1 May 2009 I made “munch”. It pulls from various recipe and cooking related web sites like taste.com.au and friends. It reads RSS and scrapes sites. Pretty simple.
  • 2:46pm Friday, 1 May 2009 46 six minutes later. I’d been eected.
  • “I need a new web site” - Me, probably avoiding real work Friday, 1 May 2009 I wanted to blog about this, sadly my blog is cached files sitting on a slicehost account. Mephisto isn’t even running any longer.
  • Friday, 1 May 2009 I quickly threw a grid together.
  • HTML5 Friday, 1 May 2009 I wanted to experiment.
  • Sinatra Friday, 1 May 2009 a bit more sinatra.
  • Friday, 1 May 2009 I knew that I didn’t want to write everything then link it in to my blog, I wanted to write it once and be able to keep it updated.

  • Friday, 1 May 2009 of course, I could’ve just got a tumblr account. That didn’t let me use sinatra or mess around with HTML5.
  • Friday, 1 May 2009 It was getting easier, I had constraints around the use of my data
  • Delicious Friday, 1 May 2009 It was getting easier, I had constraints around the use of my data

  • Friday, 1 May 2009 The yahoo pipe looked like this. A bit of a mental leap.
  • Friday, 1 May 2009 Some things stood out. like union, I could join multiple sources of data together and output them as one
  • Friday, 1 May 2009 or sort them by the publication date
  • Friday, 1 May 2009 and filter out the tweets to people. Sure a regex would’ve been smarter, but this was 90% good enough
  • Friday, 1 May 2009 I started thinking about my process, the data coming from all over the place.
  • “What if I could write something like pipes?” Friday, 1 May 2009 I wanted to do something myself (again)
  • “What if I could write a ruby block based DSL?” Friday, 1 May 2009 I’d never written one, totally a good time to jump right in head first.
  • “What if you got plain old Ruby objects?” Friday, 1 May 2009 If the data returned could be ruby, irrespective of what format it started as... it would be awesome
  • Or JSON Friday, 1 May 2009
  • Friday, 1 May 2009 Enter, “Smoke.”
  • Smoke Friday, 1 May 2009 Enter, “Smoke.”
  • Friday, 1 May 2009 A search, which I named “ruby” uses yql and does a web based (search engine) search for the keyword of “ruby”

  • Friday, 1 May 2009 and hey, I’m gonna grab the RSS feed from slashdot. “emit” will transform the objects that my feed returns. I’ll rename any keys of link to url, this will make my data mind-map better

  • Friday, 1 May 2009 The whole point of this was to bring these multiple feeds together, re interpret them as one common feed.
