Keeping a Development Diary: A Weekly Series on

Keeping a development diary is a great way to plan your app build and track what you learn along the way. I’m going to be posting mine publicly as I build an RSS-generated blog on, if you’re interested in following along!

The first entry went up today, and I’ll be working on the project in ~rss-firehose.

Do you all keep any kind of development diary? If so, what do you like to add to your entries? If not, is there any particular reason why?


The second entry in the dev diary is now up! As a first step towards building this RSS-generated blog, I added a way to read a feed.


Goodness gracious me, a post for week three! The second step was to set up a way to handle multiple feeds — something an OPML file is perfectly suited to!
