Channel Feed Creation Poll

I am the developer of the Channel Feed Manager software suite of tools.  With the demise of Direct Pubilsher, I was wondering if it makes sense to continue the development of this software.  CFM was originally written for DP channel creators, but, SDK channel developers may benefit from it also.

I'm trying to gauge the interest in this software before deciding to stop development and close the associated repository.

Please let me know if these tools are something that would be of benefit to you as an SDK channel developer.

Re: Channel Feed Creation Poll

How's this work?  Does SDK take a similar JSON or MRSS feed file?   Or will it be a complete rewrite?  Looking at the SDK template it 'seems' similar.  The content & package is a near coding from scratch.

Re: Channel Feed Creation Poll

My understanding is that an SDK channel uses a feed file to populate a "content" node.  The "content" node is used to fill the "scene graph" object.

The feed file is typically a JSON file that matches the DP schema.  I don't think there are any restrictions on the format of the feed file.

Re: Channel Feed Creation Poll

Having built SDK channel in the past, after COVID, I am now relearning from scratch.
I don't even remember how to update my SDK channels, so any help will be appreciated
