Simile TimeLine and BlogEngine RSS feeds

Jan 21, 2009 at 3:05 PM
I'm just trying to get Simile TimeLine to work with the BlogEngine RSS feed. As far as I can tell I need to get my good old RSS feed and munge it into JSON format as documented there, and then it's good to go. Google doesn't turn up anyone who already did this to save me the hassle... whilst I'm trying to decide if I'll use LINQ or something else, I thought I should check here to see if anyone already did this... anyone?

I know there's an online service to do this, but I don't want to rely on third-party service availability.

Otherwise, it looks like I just need to load the RSS into an XML document, parse that, listing all the actual post nodes, and then convert each of those into JSON. I'll put the kettle on just in case someone can save me the hassle.
