What do I do when I'm tired of programming? I do some more programming! I just added 6 different subscription feed formats to Browserling's webcomic. They're Atom, RSS, JSON, Simple Plain XML, YAML and TXT.

https://comic.browserling.com/rss.xml (RSS)
https://comic.browserling.com/atom.xml (Atom)
https://comic.browserling.com/cartoons.json (JSON)
https://comic.browserling.com/cartoons.xml (Raw XML)
https://comic.browserling.com/cartoons.yaml (YAML)
https://comic.browserling.com/cartoons.txt (TXT)

And extra bonus. JSONP API:

https://comic.browserling.com/cartoons.json?callback=parseCartoons

Update: Now also CSV, because why not.

https://comic.browserling.com/cartoons.csv (CSV)

Another Update: Now also TSV.

https://comic.browserling.com/cartoons.tsv (TSV)

Does this have any value? No. Was it a fun side project? Hell yes it was! Fun side projects is what makes you great at what you do. Now back again to main product work. Until next time!

Comment feeds would be more useful.

And why not also maildir?

Would it work if I just served .mbox as download? There are security implications that I'm not comfortable with of running a service that I don't trust 100%.

I'm fine with RSS, actually. Was just a suggestion :3
