Mahrss with code and notes

Created Wednesday 25 July 2018

This code requires "simplepie" (which isn't deprecated despite what my comments say)
http://simplepie.org/

To actually use — have a subfolder in the same folder named "rss." In this folder, place text files with rss feeds, one per line. The name of the file will serve as the "category"

<html>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN">

	<title>Mah RSS</title>

<?php
# Hey, lets put the file variables here:
$simplepieloader = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/simplepie/autoloader.php';

#COLOR PICKER
function genColorCodeFromText($text)
{

$numberstring = crc32($text);
 
$hue = $numberstring % 360;
$saturation = $numberstring % 40 + 10;
$lightness = $numberstring % 25 + 65; 
    return "hsl($hue, $saturation%, $lightness%)";
    
}

function genColorCodeFromText2($text)
{

$numberstring = crc32($text);
 
$hue = $numberstring % 360;
$saturation = $numberstring % 40;
$lightness = $numberstring % 25 + 55; 
    return "hsl($hue, $saturation%, $lightness%)";
    
}



if (isset($_GET[rssfile])) {
	$cssbgcolor = genColorCodeFromText($_GET[rssfile]);
} else {
	$cssbgcolor = "white";
}

$css2 = genColorCodeFromText2($_GET[rssfile]);
?>


<!--  THE MAIN CSS - the majority of the styles for the app are here, in fact, I believe the only one that is not is for adding the
color of the categories for the dropdown, which took some hackery -->
