Wikileaks Kampala Atom Feed

Wikileaks cable release is one of the major buzz going around Uganda media. The cables came at a wrong time for our politicians since its presidential and parliamentary election period. Some of the few cables released so far from the Embassy of Kampala are both surprising and shocking. Its not easy not to be captivated by the cables, that’s why I decided to create a simple Atom Feed such that I can keep track of whats released from the Kampala Embassy.

Making use of django-atompub with slight modification to atom.py, I created e-vault.appspot.com/feeds a simple site with the feed links of different origins of the cables. Now I can easily read previous day cables released using my N900 FeedingIt app. Its cheaper to sync feeds then read them offline due to the still crazy mobile internet rates. The Kampala feed is here.

For those who may be interested in seeing how you can use django-atompub on Google app engine using the webapp framework, you can download the whole code here.

I have added an OPML URL so that its easy to subscribe to all the origins at once.
