Okay ... I just dumped my Google Reader subscription list to an OPML
file (thanks Google) for some raw data ... first I'll build a quick
mock-up so we can agree on the format of the page and then I'll dive
right into some code. Maybe I've got Google Reader configured
differently than you do, but I only have two panes ... the left
contains a tree with my feeds and the right contains a continuously
scrolling set of feed items. I'm using the "expanded" view. With the
"list" view, there's still only one right pane but only the item's
titles are shown and if I click on an item, only that one is expanded
(and any previously expanded item is contracted).
What I'm envisioning from your description is how my Outlook e-mail
client was configured (back when I was in the corporate world).
Folders were on the left, when I selected a folder (feed) the folder's
contents would appear in the right top pane and if I selected one of
the e-mails (usually showing sender, subject and date) it would show
me the e-mail body in the lower right panel. I this what you have in
mind? Is there a setting in Google Reader that rearranges the UI so
it's three panels? If there is, I couldn't find it!
I'm also wondering why the same reader couldn't handle both feeds and
rivers ... wouldn't it be nice to pick a river and see it continuously
scroll by too?
And I have one final question that I'll ask out of curiosity ... I'm
seeing how this all fits together, but do you have a name in mind for
the whole system? Or official names, etc. for any of the individual
parts? It's much easier to keep a consistent lexicon and branding if
you start with it early. Anyway ... keep up the good thinking!
