How to Build a Super Duper News Scroller
March 20, 2009 @ 13:21:39

New from today is a tutorial on creating a new scroller, a ticker of the latest information from your choice of news feeds. They use the SimplePie parser (PHP-based) to do most of the work.

This week, we'll learn how to combine PHP, SimplePie, and jQuery to build a simple news scroller widget for your website. It's much easier than you might think; so let's begin.

Their application (source is here) combines PHP - well, SimplePie - and a custom jQuery extension. The screencast walks you through each step the code takes and, and the end, you'll have a simple news block that can show as many of the latest news items ad you'd like.
