Give Me Stuff I Starred
Not every day can be a winner in the busy-at-work department, and today was one such unfortunate day. I’ve been mulling over a new design for cubicle17 and as part of that design, I wanted to include the articles I’ve starred through Instapaper. So, to kill the excess time, I wrote Give Me Stuff I Starred, a dead-simple jQuery plugin to pull the last X links out of your starred RSS feed1. Using it is simple: just include jQuery core and the GMSIS .js files, and in your document.ready() function, add something like this:
var url = 'http://www.instapaper.com/starred/rss/6/asdfxasdf'; $("#instapaper").gmsis(url);
And that’s it. By default GMSIS pulls out the last 5 links you starred and gives you an unordered-list of the linked titles (and, optionally, the description as well). You can view the source here or you can skip straight to downloading it.
Feel free to send any bug reports/feature requests/well wishes/hate mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: If you downloaded GMSIS right after I released it, then you got a bunk version (long story short: cross-domain Ajax = denied), but Marco has completely bailed me out. The latest version is now working, so either update with an
hg pull or re-download. Management apologizes for the inconvenience.
