    RSSMangler, Grep, etc.

    A couple of RSSMangler updates:

    RSSMangler now greps! You can use regexps to show only matching items (currently matching on title and description). The request structure for grep is http://hellonline.com/RSSMangler/public/?act=grep&src=RSS_FE

    RSSMangler appears to have some errors when I try to run your demo.
    I was looking into how I can include vPim into a rails project, if you have any information you’d like to share, please contact me 🙂
