Re: RSS Screensaver for GSoC

Just thought of something to add...

Just doing RSS feeds for currently playing music probably would simply things. However, the problem with that is we could end up with an endless number of screensavers.  ie. one for music, one for weather, one for sports, one for stocks, etc, etc...

Maybe we could use a config file for different options? ie. Location of multiple feeds, URL to use for music search, URL to use for weather, etc. Or, instead of a config file, we could use gconf?

Just some thoughts...

Hi Jon,

I wanted to incorporate both cases into the screensaver: get news from a list of feeds and for current music playing.  What do you think?  Too much to do?  If I had to choose one case, I would prefer the RSS feed case.

I've played around a bit with embedding a Clutter stage into an undecorated, fullscreen GTK window.  It would be interesting to use Clutter for this project.

I have written up a proposal for GSoC. I was going to be submit it today.  But, it would be great if you could take a look at it first?

Let me know and I'll e-mail it to you.
