Sweetcron, an Automated Lifestream Blog Software

I recently came across Yong Fook’s website and found out that it is powered by a sweet-looking, not-yet-released blog software called Sweetcron. Do check his website to see it, it’s quite pretty.

What sparks my interest, of course, is how we can recreate this using WordPress? Here’s my idea: use an RSS aggregator plugin to grab the feeds from your various accounts, and then modify that plugin so that it throws different class name for the different feed sources, and finally use those class names to CSS the contents to look differently as in Yong Fook’s case.

Bam. That’s how you do a roll-your-own Sweetcron, with good ol’ WordPress.
