I’ve added a page in the Rukapedia that documents the creation of the Charlottetown Building Permits RSS feed that I wrote about yesterday. You can also grab the code itself if you’re interested in rolling your own.
I expect it would be trivial to modify the code to RSSify other regular reports from the City, like:
- Council Meeting Minutes
- Council Meetings Audio (could become a podcast with some savvy RealAudio to MP3 hacking)
- Photos of the Mayor
- City Events
Of course it would be even easier if the City simply published RSS data themselves, and I would certainly encourage them to do so.
