Fargo and OPML, Evernote, Radio3

On Twitter, Frank Meeuwsen asks a good question about Fargo.

"Would it be possible to update a Fargo Outline from within Dropbox? So add/update directly in a folder instead of the editor?"


I answered, yes no problem with that. OPML is a text-based format. Just edit the text in whatever you want, and save it to the folder.

The best way to learn about OPML is to create something in Fargo, save it, and then drag the file onto a plain text editor and see what it generated. Fargo doesn't care how the text gets there. So you just have to produce what it's expecting. I tried to design the elements so if you think about it, you'll figure out what it's doing. And I'm happy to answer any questions people have, to the extent that I can.

Connecting with Evernote

What's interesting is that Frank is an Evernote business consultant, and Evernote is a service that Fargo and our other products should hook up to. Imagine Radio3 able to post to Evernote alongside Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and RSS. That's the philosophy of these products. Let's make users' data flow smoothly. There's a lot of untapped potential here.
