About the Übersicht:
Übersicht lets you run system commands and display their output on your desktop in little containers, called widgets. Widgets are written using HTML5, which means they
* are easy to write and customize
* can show data in tables, charts, graphs … you name it
* can react to different screen sizes
In the other way, answers.splunk.com is the perfect place to interact with members of the Splunk’s community and well, the first point of technical support.
Today, i found a widget from a Übersicht colaborator, to present a RSS feed inside a widget, a very useful add-on and i decided parameterized to show the recent posts of answers.splunk.com. The code is very easy to adjust, is written in Coffeescript and Python for advanced features. I made some transformations using Google Script to convert twitter posts from @splunkanswers to RSS and adjusting minor things related the presentation.
Update1: With the RSS feed, you can do cool things…
