I haven’t been using feedburner to track counts of subscribers to my feed. I didn’t want to tell everyone to switch their feed URL… so I found this solution for handling this transition through Lighttpd.

First, make sure you are requiring the mod_redirect module.

server.modules              = ( "mod_rewrite", "mod_fastcgi", "mod_compress", "mod_redirect" )

Then add the following… to your lighty configuration.


$HTTP["useragent"] !~ "FeedBurner" {
  url.redirect = (
    "/xml/rss/feed.xml" => "http://feeds.feedburner.com/RobbyOnRails",  
    "/xml/rss20/feed.xml" => "http://feeds.feedburner.com/RobbyOnRails",
    "/xml/atom/feed.xml" => "http://feeds.feedburner.com/RobbyOnRails" 
  )
}

Works like a charm!

Thanks to Damien Tanner for putting me on the right path.

TypoSphere.org up and running

Posted by Mon, 06 Feb 2006 19:41:00 GMT

Finally! The Typo team and PLANET ARGON have finished the first phase of the move the Typo project to a new hosting provider. Currently, subversion and the trac have been moved over.

Take a look!

On the PLANET ARGON side… David Gibbons is responsible for making this happen.

If you see any issues, let us know in #typo on irc.freenode.net or in #planetargon.

On a side note… I’m sick and going to go get some rest now.

Typo on PostgreSQL

Posted by Sun, 13 Mar 2005 21:02:00 GMT

As Typo only supported SQLite and MySQL so far, I submitted a PostgreSQL schema file for the project. This new blog is running on PostgreSQL 8.0 and Rails!

I am going to use this blog to follow my Rails-related projects..and post tips and tricks!

Cheers

UPDATE Links have been updated as the original typo svn/trac is gone.
