Netvibes Modules

by

Netvibes users rejoice!  You can now take content from anywhere on the web, including sites that do not provide RSS fees, and add it to your Netvibes page without having to program.   For instance, take the latest messages from your Facebook account, your SkypeOut account balance, or search results from you favorite site and instantly include it in Netvibes.

To create a Netvibes module, simply create a Dapp for the website you like (search first, someone else may have already created one).  On the “how to use” page for the Dapp, select “Netvibes Module” and then configure it however you like.

In the future we intend to expand the transformer’s capabilities to provide even more interesting and useful Netvibes modules.  In the mean time, we hope you find this useful. Please let us know what you think.

    [...] Mashup creation tool Dapper announced today that its users can now easily create new modules from any data source for placement in the popular start page Netvibes. Dapper is a company that’s either glorifying screen scraping or leading the charge towards data portability, depending on your perspective. I like it a lot. Working with Dapper to enable fast user creation of new modules is a nice competitive advantage for Netvibes. Our previous coverage of Netvibes is here and of Dapper here. [...]

    hey, it’s really nice to see that you are further developping your already wonderful tool.
    but. honestly, i dont see how this particular new feature is better than the ‘old’ method, ie. generating an rss feed and adding it to a standard netvibes rss module. having your own module on netvibes would be a good opportunity to include an ‘url arguments’ field in the edit area of the module, for example. now that would really be some added functionality.
    otherwise i’m a great fan of yours and i wish you all the best.

  3. TPN :: The Global Geek Podcast » Blog Archive » Dapper Support for Netvibes: Create your own “modules” Says:

    [...] Today a service called dapper has announced today that with dapper you can create a “module” that can be placed on your Netvibes page without having to program (I am guessing that it previously required some code-monkey antics to work). This includes pages that do not have an RSS feed. [...]

Dapper is a company that’s either glorifying screen scraping or leading the charge towards data portability, depending on your perspective. I like it a lot. Working with Dapper to enable fast user creation of new modules is a nice competitive advantage for Netvibes. Dapper first made the scene with the release of a tool called Blotter that displays any blog’s Technorati link data over time in a graph. The company has been on an innovation blitz lately, see for example the company’s recent proof of concept called Snag – a service that aggregates all your friends, updates and messages across LinkedIn, MySpace, Friendster, Facebook, and Hi5. That was the first showcase of Dapper’s newly added support for incorporating data sources that require login and it’s just plain useful. [...]

    This is a great idea. Is it possible to limit the number of results? I tried using a dapp for facebook messages on netvibes and it pulls up dozens when I would only want it to pull up 3 or 4. Thanks!
