I decided to spend a day putting together a demo of how feed readers can deal with feeds that have both titled and title-less posts.

Two examples to start:

  1. A NYT feed. It’s a very easy case. Every item has a title and a short description.

  2. A harder case, my own blog, which has titled and title-less posts. But not really all that hard.

I’ll be releasing this in a GitHub repo tomorrow. Hope this helps at least one or two feed reader developers support titleless items.

Comments welcome.
