Where is the Apache of rssCloud?
  • Here's a topic I want to open for discussion.
  • I'd like a no-brainer, easy-to-install open source app that runs on all the popular operating systems that boots up as an implementation of rssCloud. It would play the same role that Apache played in booting up the www. (Although Apache could be easier to set up.)
  • We now have probably a half-dozen good implementations of rssCloud, but as far as I know, we haven't settled on one that we're all going to put effort into making it simple, debugged, and very high performance.
  • It may be possible that no single implementation can satisfy our needs. I don't care what language it's written in, but there are some obvious choices: C for maximum performance, PHP because it runs everywhere, Python because it's a rational well-supported language, Java because it's Java. Etc etc.
  • I never offered rssCloud.root in this role, I don't know how far it scales, probably not too far. I'm actually starting to get worried that soon it will not be able to keep up with the demands being placed on it. Long before that happens I'd like to have an alternative available.
  • I'm talking with organizations who will need a good open source implementation of rssCloud. I'd like to have a framework they can contribute to, development and testing resources, perhaps even financial resources. There's a fair amount of interest, imho.
  • If you have ideas on how this might work, please post them here. I'm linking to this from the rss-cloud list, but would prefer if the discussion happened here.
