Feeds Plus: An Intern Adventure


Last summer, we had a couple of interns on the RSS team here in IE: Nate Furtwangler, a developer intern, and Chrix Finne, a Program Manager intern. Nate and Chrix both did an amazing job helping us to ship IE7 and Vista, and they also found the time to knock out a really cool project. Here’s a big thanks from all of us to them.


I’ll let Chrix describe the project (and their experience) in his own words. In case you’re wondering, the “where’s Sean’s office” thing is a reference to Chrix’s decision that it would be fun to relocate my office to the roof of the parking garage while I was on vacation. Good times.


– Sean


 


Hi! My name is Chrix Finne and this past summer I was an intern Program Manager on the IE RSS Team – also known as ‘Team RSS got new digs so the interns got a window office.’ I had the privilege of working on several cool projects this past summer, and had a blast while doing it. Shoutout to my officemate Nate Furtwangler, developer intern and my partner in crime. Though they consumed far fewer Swedish Fish than Nate and I, my mentor Jane “where’s Sean’s office?” Kim and my manager Sean “Romulus” Lyndersay were also awesome and kept me on my toes. Congrats to the whole team on IE7 and Vista RTM!

We are proud to announce that our intern project, Feeds Plus also shipped! It’s a free IE7 add-on that adds two features to the Windows Feeds experience: aggregation and notification. We hope that Feeds Plus will help users get more flexibility and engagement with feeds in Windows.

Feeds Plus, running in the background, can combine multiple feeds into a single, river of news-style feed. All the user has to do is turn on Feeds Plus’ aggregator, and every folder of feeds will sprout an aggregate feed at the top. This can be very useful – for instance, I can make a folder with all of my news feeds and then read all my news at once through the News’ aggregate feed. Read/unread information is synced between the aggregate feed and its children, and aggregate feeds are searchable just like any other feed. If multiple feeds use Simple List Extensions (SLE) then the corresponding aggregate feed will as well – this is cool because you can combine multiple different eBay feeds, and use SLE to sort by price across all of them.

A pop-up feed notification reminiscent of Outlook’s is the second feature in Feeds Plus. The Windows Feed Download Engine always runs in the background, so users have to check to see if new items have arrived. With Feeds Plus, the user can choose which feeds matter most to them and get a pop-up ‘toast’ as soon as those feeds have new items waiting. The pop-up is designed to be unobtrusive—it fades in and out and won’t go crazy and flash every half second—and it includes a handy link to the feeds that it’s announcing:


Feeds Plus is an unsupported IE7 add-on (meaning that it’s not supported by Microsoft technical support or by the IE development team). One important note is that it does not have accessibility support in this release. Don’t use it if you’re uncomfortable using unsupported software.


Download Feeds Plus here.


So, that’s Feeds Plus. I also had the chance to help design the Feed Headlines gadget on the Windows Vista Sidebar. Feed Headlines shows the user a scrolling list of headlines from one or many feeds with a nice little preview window and links to the browser. It’s a great way to keep content handy – I keep an instance pointed at Engadget that I use to procrastinate all the time.

My favorite thing about Feed technology in Windows is how much freedom it gives the user to choose how, when, and where to consume different types of web content – from news feeds to Craigslist searches. I think that it’s critical to provide different ways to read and consume the feed content that’s coming in, so I hope you enjoy these little feeds extras.

Yours,

Chrix Finne

PS – One shameless plug: Nate and I were lucky enough to get interviewed by Channel 9, so if you want to see those Swedish Fish for real, keep an eye on Channel 9 (hint: they have a feed). They’re on the middle shelf above the demo laptop.

    Congratulations on shipping your code! I’ve been waiting for this.

  2. Bertil Wiklund says:

    Hi,

    Feeds plus is all what I was dreaming about, when talking about feeds. I now have a very convenient way to be notified on any feed update; and the aggregator is so simple ……

    As a competitive intelligence professional (and previous IT engineer), I would nevertheless suggest a few enhancements to make Feeds Plus a full professional tool :

    – I’d love to be able to search text into several aggregated feeds, or in the whole feed warehouse. Couldn’t the feeds be stored in a relational database, for enhanced queries abilities ??

    – I think I’d need a way to save the target web page into .mht file, to track the changes and updates for a given feed, even when the web page does not exist any more.

    – Many web sites don’t offer feeds notifications, when changes occur. I think a virtual feed engine should track those changes, just like Page2RSS or FeedFire.

    Regards

    Bertil Wiklund

  3. AriH says:

    Should have an option to force a feed update, preferably from the system tray

  4. Wictor says:

    AriH: you should check out this similar utility – msfeedicon – which has what you are looking for and the Feed Plus notification functionality.

    You can find it here: http://www.wictorwilen.se/Category/msfeedicon.aspx

    /WW

  5. Needs:

    1. The abiltity to mark all as read that only marks the ones that are on the current page as read.

    2. Easy refresh…

  6. 3. Pagination (Look at newsgator online for these as how it should work… except theirs doesn’t)

    4. The ability to login to my passport account and have it keep track of where I am so that when I go to my laptop I can view the same feeds and they’ll pickup where I left off.

    It’s getting there! This is almost where the stuff should have been in IE 7 by default!

  7. nbradbury says:

    I don’t want to take away from Chrix’s excellent work (the notifier is especially nice), but any application that ties into the common feed list will see those "* All Items *" feeds (along with their "Feed aggregation is enabled" posts).

    This raises the concern that third-parties may eventually add their own "non-feed subscriptions" to the common feed list.  In some cases this would be fine, but the door is open for far less useful stuff to be added to the feed list, where it will be seen by all applications that integrate with it.

    Again, I’m not trying to be a downer on Chrix’s work – just trying to provide constructive feedback.

    Best,

    Nick Bradbury

  8. Nate says:

    Very nice… but the OK button doesn’t work in settings 😉

  9. Richard says:

    How do I uninstall it ?

  10. rss says:

    @Richard,

    you can uninstall Feeds Plus by going to the ‘Add or Remove Programs’ control panel and uninstalling ‘Feeds Plus for Windows’.

    Hope this helps,

    Walter [MSFT]

  11. Ryan Walters says:

    I’d like to see you change the XSL that transforms the feed so that you can page through each post like the way Onfolio (which MS now owns) displays feeds. That way each time you select a post it is marked as read, so that you don’t have to mark the entire feed read.

    This feature would make the built-in IE feed reader awesome.

    Also, the ability to search the entire feed collectin (again, a l’Onfolio) would be nice.

  12. Herby Hancock says:

    It would be nice if the notifications that came while your computer was locked showed up after unlocking.  Google Desktop does that.

  13. Tom says:

    And here is a toast popup utility for the craigslist RSS feed http://craigstoast.com

  14. new_duxie says:

    when you say it affects programs that use the Windows Common Feed Store, does this mean that Outlook 07 will stop being able to read the feeds if using this program?

  15. bob fichtner says:

    thanks for a great tool.  i would love the ability to display "all feeds" sorted by source, then date.  right now, it jumbles all the various feeds into one long string based on date. it displays the source, so that is helpful, but in my own little world, i would prefer to have them sorted and displayed by source.

  16. nbradbury says:

    new_duxie, just to clarify my comment, this won’t in any way stop Outlook 2007 (or any other application) from reading your feeds.  It will simply add a few "* All Items *" feeds to your subscriptions which will show only "Feed Aggregation is Enabled" posts in applications other than IE7.

  17. daven says:

    I just got this as a new item again today. I know I read it last week. I’m also getting the same thing with other Microsoft Feeds. Not sure if Feeds Plus caused it but it’s a bit annoying.

  18. nik says:

    I’ve had this on for a day or so, without getting any pop-ups from the systray. So I put it on to check every 15 mins and sure enough it worked. Thing is, I was in a game at the time and it took the focus from it, kicking me out of fullscreen. I hope that this isn’t going to remain as standard behaviour. I’ve already switched of the aggregators, if I have to dis/enable the showing of feed alerts before and after playing games ther is no way I’ll continue using this. I’ll comment again if the same happens again while watching a video in fullscreen.

  19. JPL says:

    Feeds Plus is excellent.  Thank you.  But what about new feeds that come in when you are away from your PC?

    It would help me if the System Tray icon could change to show the presence of new/unread items, cf. Bloglines Notifier.

  20. Provolino says:

    I agree with JPL. I’d like to found a notification icon in the bottom status bar to check all popped up feeds I missed because I was awy from my pc

  21. rss says:

    This may be a bit subtle, but the Feeds Plus icon *does* look a little different when there are new items since the last time you read feeds.

    Its normal view is a plus-sign with some waves. When there have been notifications while you were away, it changes to a "gleam" (a star, instead of the plus). Reading any feed will change it back to the original form.

    Hope this helps,

    Sean

  22. Marcel says:

    Hi,

    Could you please let me know if I can get IE7 to show me the images that come with RSS feeds when I am offline?

    How do I get the images stored on my laptop?

    I am using the new FeedPlus (http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2007/01/25/feeds-plus.aspx) and I really like it!

    Many thanks.

  23. Alijah Green says:

    ISSUES

    1 AFTER READING ALL ITEMS THE ACTUAL FEEDS THEMSELVES ARE NOT BEING SHOWN AS READ.

    2 VISTA SIDEBAR GADGETS IS LOCKING MY SIDEBAR ON EVERY USE. IT SEEMS TO NOT USE THE PLATFORM. IT USING THE INTERNET FOR SOME REASON

    3 OUTLOOK RSS DOES NOT USE THE PLATFORM NEITHER, BEING THAT IF I AM OFF LINE AND READING MY FEEDS FROM IE7 WHEN I OPEN OUTLOOK IT SHOULD REFLECT THE SAME INFO.  

    ONCE RSS PLATFORM CAN BE SYNC WITH ALL OTHER AGGREGATORS. IT WILL BECOME MORE USEFUL.

    NICE WORK KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

  24. Joris says:

    Feeds plus is showing me poor performance,

    i created a simple VB6 app that responds to the feeds events by showing a "notification balloon" and this consistently pops up it’s notification several seconds before feeds plus.

    Allso clicking on a feeds plus notification window to view the feed freezes my workstation for several seconds before MSIE7 will show the feed.

    So, please tell us, how do de fix that, or should we just not bother with interns projects?

  25. Hey this is nice … This should be shipped as an optional add-on in Windows Update for IE-7.

  26. mkp says:

    First, I love(d) the feeds reader built into IE7. This is (was) the main feature that keeps (kept) me using IE over Firefox. That being said, I’m being required to leave my IE7. Your Feeds Plus app has totally hosed the operation of my feeds reader in IE7. No feeds will automatically load. Most feeds when viewed crash IE7 totally. I’ve uninstalled the Feeds Plus app and IE7 then reinstalled IE7 and same issue. I’m actually pretty upset that yoru "little" app has hosed my laptop and the best browser made to date. Very upset!

    -mkp.

  27. Alec says:

    Thanks for the info guys … I use http://www.feedity.com which is also a good tool

  28. rss says:

    @joris:

    The notification window delays for 5 seconds to see if any other notifications arrive, so that it can batch them up. If one arrives, it’ll wait another 5 seconds, and so on, until it gets to 60 seconds — and then it’ll show whatever it has. It does this to avoid innundating you with notification pop-ups.

    The link just launches the default browser with that URL — so it shouldn’t be anything major. We’ll see if we can reproduce that locally.

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone!

  29. Srivatsa Srinivasan says:

    Finally….! RSS was almost useless to me in IE7 without an aggregator (c’mon who doesn’t aggregate??). Nice work.

  30. BM says:

    Hi

    Like your program, but I have a problem using it at work. It is blocked in our firewall because I do not have the option of adding username and password.

    Hope it could be added sometime in the future.

    BM

  31. BM,

    The RSS Download Engine picks up the WinINET proxy/firewall auth settings that are set in IE options.

    When you are normally browsing with IE, how/when are you entering your credentials? Is it on first navigating to a web site?

    -Walter [MSFT]

  32. BM says:

    Hi Walter

    Yes, It is on first navigation to a web side.

    I have tried to close Feeds Plus and starting it again after I have filled in my username/password, but the connections still shows up in our firewall (ISA 2006) as an anonymous connection.

    BM

  33. Great idea, but…

    How come feedsplus blows my CPU out 100% when updating feeds?  Did you write this in .NET or something 😉

    Agggh, uninstall quick.

    R.

  34. Yeah, Feeds Plus pretty much killed my CPU today. On top of that, my desktop keeps switching to the 256 color icons for Recycle Bin and My Network Places.

  35. Morten says:

    If You are looking for an easy way to generate rss-feeds You should try the feedgenerator-component at http://www.feedow.com.

    It also supoorts Itunesfeeds and is 100% free 🙂

  36. firefox says:

    It also supoorts Itunesfeeds and is 100% free 🙂

  37. popeye says:

    This question is not restricted to Feeds Plus; more on the RSS platform itself. Is this a suitable backend for a ASP.NET website?  

    If I need a RSS aggregator widget for a website, can I build it on top of the Windows RSS platform?  Would it work on an unattended server?(with no user logged-in)

    Thanx

  39. I like the sidebar gadget very much, but is it only limited to 100 items? I want a small, light-weight, always on RSS reader and if I could see more than 100 items this would be it!

  47. Ameet says:

    Hi, I’m new to feeds. I have read about it and all that I can find is that it allows to broadcast specific parts of a webpage as news. For my dissertation I am wondering if there is any way we can broadcast business to business data that will come off a webpage and can be absorbed by specific subcriber machines to update their data? To explain more clearly, imagine a situation where you are selling a product and have subcribed to other websites that will promote your product. If you have to make a change to your product description, you would have to manually amend it on all the websites, instead can RSS Feed be used to send updates so that the amendments are reflected in the webpages of other subscribers?? Any help will be greatly appreciated. If this is not the right place, perhaps you can point me in the right direction??

    Thanks a lot.

    For shame! Perhaps there should be a stricter review of this intern’s code?

    Good tool but doesn’t work with IE8. I begin to develop a notification app for Rss with Windows Rss Engine in Wpf, the current release is the first one. It currently detect feed in the root rss list, not in a folder. Visit my blog to test the software and give me some feed back…

    Very nice… but the OK button doesn’t work in settings 😉

  116. I created a simple VB6 app that responds to the feeds events by showing a "notification balloon" and this consistently pops up it’s notification several seconds before feeds plus.

    Allso clicking on a feeds plus notification window to view the feed freezes my workstation for several seconds before MSIE7 will show the feed…

    I just got this as a new item again today. I know I read it last week. I’m also getting the same thing with other Microsoft Feeds. Not sure if Feeds Plus caused it but it’s a bit annoying.

  118. when you say it affects programs that use the Windows Common Feed Store, does this mean that Outlook 07 will stop being able to read the feeds if using this program? yess msdn com

  119. I think We’re looking to implement a new XP desktop with IE7 and Office 2007 and would like to know if Feeds Plus would be officially released and supported as initial tests seems promising.

    Thanks for the great tool! Unfortunately the update functionality is not working for aggregated feeds. I need to go through every single feed and update it before I can read the updated aggregated feed. This makes the aggregation more or less useless. Could you fix this? Would be highly appreciated!

    Thank you for the great story.

  127. I have been reading about how to improve mt article writing, but it would be nice if I actually had some visitors which left some input. I think that could help me to improve my blog.

    Not to post comments that obviously look at comments I saw. SEO is really very well prepared on site, but I see my life boring.Her spam comments that my opinion anyway, and post comments about my past that I’m late.

    You have a beautiful language when writing. Even a man who understood little English, was written in

    Hello All. The RSS Download Engine picks up the WinINET proxy/firewall auth settings that are set in IE options.

    IE8 has better security than IE7, it is the memory protection should be more complete Internet experience with the speed of progress. Very good innovation

    I'd like to see you change the XSL that transforms the feed so that you can page through each post like the way Onfolio (which MS now owns) displays feeds.
