Seeing Double


This post was almost titled Humpty Dumpty.... but the pieces are coming back together.

Newsheap has undergone a major rearrangement to support multiple views onto feeds.

Each category folder now holds references to underlying feeds such that a feed can show up in multiple categories.

If you are tracking through your .NET feeds, you may read Java Morning, C# Afternoon. You might also peruse this feed in your JAVA feeds. Your choice.

In this image you can see multiple groups containing the same feed.

The master list of feeds is now a popup frame, reflected dynamically in the 'All' folder.

Category Nodes are next. Each feed will support metadata including user defined categories. Dynamic folder nodes will coallesce all feeds with the associated categories and will stay updated as new feeds are added or modified.

You can have your cake and eat it too, just not yet. The destabilizing effects of this exercise are still manifest. It will take a little bit of time to settle down.
