Feedly's chief executive Edwin Khodabakchian said that the company is committed to fixing the problems adding that Feedly did not currently import OPML
files but would gain the functionality and users could export the data from Google and reload it en masse into Feedly at some point over the coming days.
The use of OPML was well outside the mainstream of librarianship, and, even among colleagues who were aware of OPML, few had considered how it could be used to easily share groups of feeds between users and readers.
To save users' time and to allow easy import into feed readers, bundled OPML files were created for both these top journals lists and the comprehensive lists.
, or outline processor markup language, is an XML format commonly used to share lists of web-feed URLs.
Google provides plenty of documentation and examples for formatting XML files and also supports the use of OPML
or TSV files.
I mentioned the OPML
Editor (http:// support.opml.org) in one of my past columns about reading lists, but I didn't mention one of my favorite features of the program.
The first is OPML
, or Outline Processor Markup Language.
In April's Library Stuff Revisited, I introduced OPML and reading lists.
In my last column, I explained that OPML is an easy way to gather links, RSS feeds, or any other type of content that lets you share it with colleagues and networks.
The emerging Outline Processor Markup Language (OPML
) promises these features and more, which makes it an excellent format for creating and sharing research and information guides.
With this in mind, Dave Winer, a pioneer in the blogging and RSS industries, created reading lists, which are OPML
documents that point to RSS feeds.
