Titles working

For anyone following the development of Lilina on SVN, I now have the feed’s source displaying properly on each item.
The installer is also almost finished.

And the results are in

I just tested Lilina on my laptop which had a few programs running, just to get a fairly accurate time on the loading (my computer is bogged down).

The results were amazing:

  • 3.12 seconds on the first go
  • 1.07 seconds on reload

These times are incredible compared to old loading times of 10 seconds for one feed.

There are some important things to note however:

  • HTMLPurifier uses a lot of CPU and memory resources
    • As the author says: “Precisely why you need to cache HTMLPurifier’s output”
    • However, Lilina does not cache HTMLPurifier’s output. This must be fixed
  • Lilina isn’t finished yet, so the times may be inaccurate.
  • Loading times are dependant on the speed of the server’s connection:
    The faster the server, the less time needed to load

Now, once I get the OPML import up and running, I will be able to test for security flaws.

Cache working

I finally have the caching system working. I accidentally had it before the settings, which screwed with it because the times weren’t set.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all Lilina users!

With the new year, I thought I’d give a run-down of the new features in Lilina 1.0:

  • New admin panel
  • Plugin & Templating system
  • Faster loading times
  • Support for enclosures and podcasts
  • Abilty to rename feeds
  • Configuration via a web-interface
  • Default configuration kept in inc/core/conf.php
  • User settings kept in settings.php
  • RSS and Atom output
  • Caching of the front page
  • XHTML Output
  • Sanitizing feeds – No platypuses turning up in the middle of your pages
  • Proper OPML importing: Doesn’t overwrite your current feeds
  • Database support (Note: not full support, but support)

Plus more ;)

Welcome to the New Lilina Site!

Welcome to the new and improved Lilina web-site. This takes over from the old site at SourceForge.

On this site, we will host support pages for folks who need some help and development pages for those folks who just want to help.

On the technical side, this site is powered by WordPress and the forums by Vanilla. The style is a custom made one and is integrated with the forums.

I will be using the bug tracker at Google Code and I will be hosting the downloads at Google Code and SourceForge.

1.0-prealpha will be released within a week or so in a semi-usable way. More information on 1.0 coming soon.

Anyway, in the mean time, browse around the site and check out the pages. More are added every day!
