Last week www.beginend.net was launched with the goal of aggregating Pascal and Delphi blogs in a mobile-friendly, secure website with a minimalist UI.
The basic features are to aggregate blogs, allow voting to surface the more interesting posts, and you can optionally “quiet” a blog you do not like or do not care about.
Registration is required for the last two features, but the registration is as lightweight as possible, with the only requirement being an email address. No login, no passwords, no personal data, you will just get an email with a login link.
The plan is to open-source the whole contraption in the next weeks, as soon as I get time to put final touches and am satisfied there are no obvious security issues or abuse opportunities.
If you find a blog of interest that is not listed on the Feeds page, do not hesitate to suggest it!
I am not sure yet what/if any new features will come next, maybe some way to aggregate Pascal open-source projects changes, maybe some up-time service for blog-owners (get notified when your blog is down/offline, the server already tracks it anyway), maybe something else entirely.
If you have other ideas… shoot away 🙂
