Sites like iGoogle and www.pageflakes.com
use external content feeds and with clever use of AJAX, the user is able to move and re-arrange content boxes around in the page, add unique content or delete and customize to their heart's contentment.
If I wanted to create a similar website where users could select from external rss feeds and display them on their own 'mashup page', how could I do that?
I looked at the Google web developer tools, thinking they were offering something, but it turns out they only want you to make stuff for their own iGoogle page. I have an idea for my website where I want to create like a information directory page - where a user can add a list of useful telephone numbers or email address on their 'mashup page', but then they can delete or add modules whenever they need to, with complete freedom. Essentially the same core functionality found on the previous example sites, but maybe not as complex or with so much flair.
I'm sure there are many others out there wondering how to do the same thing. I guess it may need the hands of an experienced developer, but how to start such a project?
