Symfony blogger feed

There used to be a feed (RSS) maintained by Sensio that aggregated all the feeds of publicized “Symfony Bloggers”. People would go post their blog’s feed here: http://trac.symfony-project.org/wiki/SymfonyBloggers and then their feeds would be auto-magically merged into the “Symfony Blog Quotes” feed. This tool was of great use to me. I read most of the posts (when in a language I could speak!) and learned a lot.

Sadly this went down a few months ago. I took the whole list of feeds on that page. Checked all of them and eliminated the ones that didn’t return a valid feed or didn’t exist anymore. I kept all the others even if not updated recently.

All of them are now part of a public feed at http://feeds.feedburner.com/sfbloggers . I’m only concerned that Google Reader (which is used in the back to publish this feed) seems to sort last posts in the order it fetched them rather than publish date which means that the posts prior to today are not shown in the right order. So this post serves two purposes: testing that it updates correctly. And publicizing it.

If your blog’s feed is not in the final feed and you would like to add it, send me a message by email, github (@khepin), twitter (@khepin), in the comments here, or wherever you want! You can also fork this github repository add your feed to the feed_list file and send me a pull request.

Hope that this will help spread the discussion on Symfony especially as I think a lot is needed as many of us are still getting our hands at Symfony2!

    • Nope, and for a few reasons:
      - This discussion has already occurred for the mailing list and the decision is to keep all info and knowledge in one place
      - For blogs, you can’t know if they’re going to talk about v1 or v2. It might change over time. It might change many times (take symfony’s official blog with version announcements, it’s impossible to say if it’s v1 or v2).
      - I’m not going to go through the 200 urls again for this ;-)

  1. Hi!

    http://trac.symfony-project.org/wiki/SymfonyBloggers is back again, but it’s not editable in the trac (at least for me) as it was before – and this makes me a problem. I’m unable to update my link from main RSS into RSS:symfony-tag to make my feed filter all posts with ‘symfony’ tag. So far all my posts were about symfony, but now I want to publish articles about other stuff, nothing to do with sf1/2. Can you give me a hint…?
    Thanks in advance!

    • No idea, sorry! The RSS from the symfony project website still doesn’t really work for me. It only gets half of the posts most of the time.
      If you want to change how your feed is treated in the feed I created, you can send me a PR on the github repo that lists all the feeds.
      But for the original symfony feed, I have no clue…
