Dirk of spreadshirt.net already sent a modification which uses FeedCreator class v1.7.8. Although his changes on streber v0.065 look very nice we have to do some additional changes to intergrate them into the main release:

requested by cochise:π

I am not sure if this exists already, sorry if it does. How about creating an rss feed for each project so that any changes to the project (within streber) and you can be notified by it via rss aggregator. So lets say a client makes a comment on something, then you can be notified of it; or a designer has a question, it can be updated immediately via rss feed. I think this would save a lot on "waiting" time.

guest:Great idea

12 years ago (6. update 12 years ago) -

I would appreciate seeing an RSS feature; it's very helpful to not have to constantly check for new comments. An RSS feed with a list of tasks with updated content (e.g. a new comment, task marked as complete, new task created) would be a welcome alternative. I can then add that feed to my main feed page where I track other sites.

pixtur:Well, security first...

The only RSS-feed I can image right now would be a personal one, something like the notifical mails. This could actually be created easily. Distinguishing between different projects and items would mean additional effort.

Also note, that RSS-Feeds are a potential security issue. Most managers would not like if the newest events on there projects would be readable on an open RSS-Feed. So would would have to create them like:

http://streber.pixtur.de/index.php?go=rss&id=721349812asd2134

whereas id links to an rss for one team member.

Question:
  • How would you delete existing RSS-Feeds (e.g. if an unwanted persons starts reading it?)
  • Would the id change if user changes his password or nickname?

I also see security in first place. Problem is, that you imho you cannot post an rss-feed with user authentication.

If an RSS-Feed is just an reminder: "there's a new comment", the RSS-feed could just be implemented by headline (no text). So the feed would say something like "new comment: reply Well, security first..." in "RSS-feed for each project". To read the new comment, you have to follow the link and login to streber.

But if I'm honest, I don't see the big thing, especially when and/or are finished. Then you have all the information right at your fingertips. And whether you're reading a RSS-feed or you just click on your streber-homepage, this is not the big difference.

pixtur:yes, especially if...

updates on monitored tasks would cause immediate emails (similar to PhpBB). Although I would never use this feature personally, some managers will love it ;-)

Thanks for the image, I'm sure it won't get out of my head for a while! *G*
As reading your comment, I remembered a client who loved to get daily mails from us on the progress of his project. As I was at his office for an update-meeting, I saw like 1000 of my emails unread in a subfolder... *G*

guest:Simple RSS solution for projects

12 years ago (8. update 12 years ago) -

I've recently sent a draft of our project rss feed implementation for streber to Thomas. Maybe, it will be available in a version soon. Though, there is no right management included.

pixtur:Go your mail...

I will check your code next week. Maybe we can add this as an option...

imho, rss feed with authentification is absolutely possible.
It would be so perfect if you could integrate the rss feed for each project, or also for a user like his tasks. would make the use of the project much more frequent and easy.

I would suggest to everybody involved in making that happen take a look at www.rememberthemilk.com, if you don't know it already. You can actually have an rss feed of every list that you have over there.

So thank you very much for the great product you guys are creating, it is helping us a LOT!

looking forward to hearing from you.

OR has this been done? I see the last comment is from 17. sep...

pixtur:remember the milk and RSS-Feeds

Since I had some free time I spent some hours on figuring out HTTP(s) Authentification for RSS feeds. This normally seems to be straight forwards, but there are a lot of pitfalls with different server setups. Like for me it is running in php-cgi mode.

It is still not working perfect. If the HTTP-authentification would work as expected, implementing RSS-feeds for projects should be a matter for 2 or 3 hours.

If somebody wants to speed things up, he might want to provide some help with .htaccess / mod_write (see above link).
