I dropped the rss feed usage finally and switched to the webservice spreadshirt is offering. For an introduction on using it with python and SOAPPy see my earlier post.
Lately i’ve been playing a bit around with the spreadshirt webservice. We wanted a navigation based on the desings and automation of reoccuring tasks is so wonderfull. So i had a look in the rss feed and didnt find any usefull infos. The only other ways to get infos from spreadshirt i am aware of is either the xml export (dont know much, dont have premium access or an export file) and the webservice. I took the webservice approach....

As announced earlier i am releasing the source code of the SpreadProductXHMTLProducer tool. You can download it here
As stated in part one i’ll provide and explain some of the code. I’ll deploy the whole source code some time later. Until that you can use the online version (which will stay online).
Last time we saw how easy it is to aggregate some feeds and present them on a web page. This time i am gonna create a tool using python and feed parsing. Nope its not another aggreagtor, i had a different need.
