I’d been working on this webpart ages ago to enter into the NewsGator API competition but didn’t end up getting it finished in time to submit it. Left it sitting in the projects folder for a couple of months until I decided to finish it this weekend as I was feeling a little ill and didn’t want to leave the house!
So what’s it all about then? Well I called it SharePointGator (no doubt infringing on some copywrite), as it’s a NewsGator webpart for SharePoint. Using the NewsGator webservice and your newsgator account details you can now view the rss feeds and unread blog posts from your newsgator account in SharePoint.
