SimpleRSS is a barebones RSS feed reader, with the intent of minimizing visual noise and clutter.


Concepts Demonstrated

  • I abstract away data management using the dispatch model for storing and managing information about feeds.
  • The use of map and filter demonstrate rudimentary functional programming concepts.

External Technology

External technology includes network functionality for fetching RSS feed files, use of the XML library to parse the RSS feeds, and use of the Scheme GUI library to present the feeds.


Exceedingly little.

Other remarks

Many websites don't work perfectly. Or at all.
