Default How do you use UNYVERSE?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm starting this thread because I want to see how others are using this program and perhaps, it will be a repository of ideas and helpful hints for others attempting to use it.

Rivviepop, has already stated in two separate threads about what he has been doing with it and I'm trying to figure out if I have the mental wherewithal to do anything of worth with the provided simulator. I may just chicken out and use the already provided notebook, however. It looks like it may be a little more easily accessible(one click) than Google mobile notebook, since an application launcher is downloaded onto the BlackBerry.

So far, Rivviepop has mentioned making a San Jose Sharks wiki group/page and a shopping list. There are a couple of other people that were talking about it in threads, so what have you done or what are you planning to do with it?

Personally, I want to create a diary and/or a writing software that can be easily imported to my desktop writing applications without a lot of needed reformatting. Any ideas to lead me in a straight line, would be nice.

My first MAX app is hopefully going to be a Del.icio.us browser; it's in my noggin but no real code written yet. I did start with a super basic proof of concept to make sure I could pull down my own RSS feed:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<max id="delicious.rss" version="1.0"
     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
     xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="http://www.unyverse.com/developer/max.xsd">
  <title>Del.icio.us Feed</title>
  <page id="default">
    <query id="data" type="rss">http://www.unyverse.com/uws/rss?url=http://del.icio.us/rss/rivviepop</query>
    <title>Bookmarks {data.count}</title>
    <item>{data.title}</item>
  </page>
</max>
I just need to get the time to sit down and start with the real coding and see how far I can get. My idea is that you should be able to pull down only links with a tag (like "mtag" or "mobile" to be compatible with other existing services), and then be able to launch those links from your device with a click.

That's the plan, at least.

EDIT: I should note in the above code that I'm passing the del.icio.us stream through the Uny web service for RSS - the Uny author (Thierry) let me know that Atom and RDF (del.icio.us uses RDF) are not natively supported on the device, you have to filter them through his webservice as I've shown in order to transform them into basic RSS.

Good luck, Rivvie. I see what it is that you want to do, but I have no idea of what you are talking about. Tags, coding...

It looks like I'm going to have to talk someone else into doing it for me or do a quick study on how to write what I have in mind.
